Play of the Day: Adventures With Ted Cruz

The Texan is under more scrutiny as the campaign continues.

The Nevada GOP caucus was held Tuesday with Donald Trump emerging as the winner. While late-night television shows tape before the caucus was held, hosts joked about Trump in Nevada. Late Show's Stephen Colbert compared him to Cirque du Soleil while Conan O'Brien noted Trump's past financial troubles.

Ted Cruz came in a disappointing third place in Nevada, which may be a sign of trouble for the Texan's campaign. The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon joked about Cruz's father's claims that God told him to run, while Jimmy Kimmel scrutinized Cruz's plans for Western public lands. Late Night's Seth Meyers devoted a segment to Cruz, culminating in Meyers noting Cruz taking a position on fireworks regulation in Iowa despite running against an actual firework.
