Colbert Mocks Ted Cruz's Hubristic Portrait Of Himself (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Sen. Ted Cruz, the latest Texas politician to commonly use humble language that belies a massive ego, let slip in a recent interview that he has a giant portrait in his office of himself arguing a case before the Supreme Court. Apparently, he uses the portrait as inspiration.

But Stephen Colbert wasn't about to let that admission go without putting it in context: The case Cruz was arguing was on behalf of the state of Texas, attempting to get out of donating money to impoverished children that it had promised. You know, just like Jesus would have wanted.
