Keep in mind this is how GOP lawmakers are utilizing their time during a pandemic.

Lone Star US Sen. Ted Cruz landed in a Twitter war with Hollywood “Hellboy” actor Ron Perlman on Monday — with Perlman finally challenging the pol to a wrestling match for charity.

Perlman, an outspoken online critic of the GOP, kicked things off by first taking on Republican US Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida on Sunday night. The pair got into it over everything from US soccer players kneeling during the national anthem to the election of Gaetz thanks to what the actor said was gerrymandering.

Perlman eventually tweeted a photo of GOP Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio and wrote of Gaetz, “PS: You’re lucky for this guy Matt. It weren’t for him you’d be the ugliest politician walking.”

At that point, Cruz decided to jump into the fray. 

Now, remember this is a member of the Senate trying to arrange an actual wrestling match between a member of Congress and movie actor.

Perlman had a better idea. 

By the way, the “problematic” part of Jim Jordan and wrestling refers to the fact that he ignored charges of sexual abuse while working as an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State University.  

Cruz, who simply cannot keep his mouth shut, then responded with this tweet:

Perlman’s response:

I have to just say that if Perlman actually convinces Cruz to enter the ring with him I would also be willing to contribute to Black Lives Matter.

Hell, I might even promise to donate to the NRA if it means getting to watch somebody stomp Ted Cruz into a mud hole. 

(Yes, I find him THAT unlikeable.)
