Sen. Ted Cruz recently made an appearance in New Hampshire, which according to Seth Meyers, could only mean one of two things: Either the Texas senator will try to run for president or he was trying to buy cheap liquor from the state's stores.
"When you tell a politician you're from New Hampshire he gets really excited," Meyers, who hails from New Hampshire, observed.
Stopping by Late Night, Cruz discussed many hot-button topics with Meyers, including his visit to New Hampshire in which he accidentally terrified a 3-year-old into believing the whole world was literally on fire, which caused the media to dub Cruz "Freddy Kruger." But Meyers saw the metaphor a different way.
"First, I got excited because I thought maybe you were coming around on global warming," Meyers said. "Because I think the world's on fire, literally. Hottest year on record."
Citing satellite image data and New Hampshire's "snow and ice," Cruz argued the world hasn't warmed at all. But Meyers wasn't going to stop grilling the potential candidate. The comedian also went after him for his views on Obamacare and gay marriage.
