Watch: Bill Maher Absolutely Nails Ted Cruz With Hilarious List of Facts You Didn't Know

Van Jones, one of Bill Maher's guests on Friday night, was laughing so hard that Maher was a little concerned about him. This was during a segment on Real Time making fun of one of the easiest targets around these days—no, not Trump, the other one. Ted Cruz.


After People magazine came out with its lame cover story "25 Things You Don't Not Know About Hillary Clinton," (she eats hot sauce on everything!), Maher presented his "25 Things About You Don't Know ABout Ted Cruz."

Some tidbits:

“I spent my entire freshman year of high school stuffed in a locker.”

"As a child I used to imagine what it would be like to have an imaginary friend."

“My nickname at Princeton was F*ckface”

And: “I named the stick up my ass, ‘Hank.'”

It was actually hilarious:
