Stephen Colbert confronts Ted Cruz over Reagan

“Guys, guys, however you feel, he’s my guest so please don’t boo him,” Colbert said at one point, when Cruz was defending his opposition to same-sex marriage and a few hisses could be heard from the audience.

Colbert kept the first half of the interview lighthearted, joking about the size of the GOP field and life as a presidential candidate. Asked, “What are the days like?” Cruz cracked, “You just have to surgically disconnect your shame sensor because you spend every waking moment asking people for money.”

Though Cruz was also quick to emphasize his enthusiasm for the campaign, the exchange lead to some early sparks between the host and the candidate. When Cruz described himself as “a kid in a candy store” on the campaign trail, Colbert fired back, “Who’s paying for the candy?” winking at the deregulation of campaign finance prompted by the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, and garnering big applause from the studio audience.

In his opening, Colbert poked at some other presidential contenders. He noted that billionaire Donald Trump is even leading Jeb Bush in Florida, where Bush used to be governor.

“It makes sense that Florida likes Trump – they’re used to cartoon characters with giant heads,” Colbert joked, with photos of Trump and Mickey Mouse on screen.
