Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) continued his feud with comedian Jimmy Kimmel Wednesday after Kimmel sent him to hell in an irreverent skit featuring Billy Crystal as God and Dave Grohl as Satan.
In the skit, God and Satan fight over who gets Cruz and Satan ends up with him after losing a game of rock, paper, scissors.
Cruz hit back at Kimmel Wednesday tweeting "Jimmy’s feelings are still hurt that I kicked his a** at hoops."
Really getting into the Christmas spirit, Jimmy Kimmel just aired a skit with “God & Satan” arguing and eventually deciding that I should go to Hell. It’s almost as if Jimmy’s feelings are still hurt that I kicked his ass at hoops.... https://t.co/FuehUsGHwX— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) December 19, 2018
Sen. Cruz was referencing his 11-9 victory over Kimmel in their friendly one-on-one game of basketball the two had in June after Kimmel likened Cruz to a “blobfish” and insulted his love of the Houston Rockets.

“You’re a good sport,” Kimmel told Cruz after his defeat. “I still think you’re a terrible senator.”
They donated $10,000 each to charity after the game. Cruz chose Generation One Texas, which is dedicated to fighting poverty and Kimmel gave to the Texas Children’s Hospital.
