Play of the Day: Ted Cruz Loves Soup. Probably Too Much.

The Texan tells stories to humanize himself, but they always just come off creepy.

Bernie Sanders held a rally in New York's Washington Square Park that 27,000 attended this week, so, naturally, Big Apple-based late-night comedians joked about the event. The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon joked that New Yorkers will get in any line, while Late Night's Seth Meyers joked that Sanders was just one of the old men playing chess in the park.

At a CNN event this week, Ted Cruz and his family told humanizing stories about the Texas Senator's life. Well, he tried to tell humanizing stories, but they mostly came off as odd and/or creepy. One of his daughters caught him in a tiny lie about her karaoke prowess, for example, making her better than all debate moderators as The Daily Show's Trevor Noah pointed out, while Meyers joked about his daughters thinking Cruz has a chance at the White House. Jimmy Kimmel noted Cruz's odd story about his first date with his wife, Heidi, while Noah keyed in on an odd story Heidi told about Cruz buying 100 cans of soup. After all, what does one do with 100 cans of Campbell's Chunky? Doesn't such a purchase disqualify one for the presidency?
