  • Hear Me Out Beto O'Rourke Is Going to Win Texas

Before getting to the Cruz segment of the video, Triumph starts off gently poking fun at Beto O'Rourke and his supporters.

Before Triumph interviewed Cruz, he spoke to his opponent, O'Rourke.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was projected to narrowly win a second term Tuesday by defeating Democratic challenger Beto O'Rourke, who became a national media sensation during the campaign and benefited from an outpouring of outside donations and spending.

Amazon is changing its free shipping option for the holiday season
About $720 billion in sales are up for grabs for the Black Friday shopping weekend, according to the National Retail Federation . The credit ratings agency noted that in the fourth quarter of 2017 alone Amazon's shipping costs amounted to $7.4 billion.

Next up was Harlingen, Texas, where Triumph announced, "I'm here at the Ted Cruz rally, or a Duck Dynasty cosplay convention, not 100 percent sure".

Results: Texas polls close at 8 and 9 p.m. EST, or 7 and 8 Central (local) time. He raised a staggering $70 million, the most of any Senate candidate in history, according to USA Today. Republicans typically have a double-digit advantage over their Democratic counterparts in the deep red state.

"Ted, is it true you will defend the constitution at all costs, except for when Donald Trump calls it ugly on Twitter?". "He's dishonest", O'Rourke said then.

Crashed Indonesian jet may have been found
Indonesia's worst air disaster was in 1997, when a Garuda Indonesia A300 crashed in the city of Medan, killing 234 people. Three other objects in separate locations were reached by divers but turned out to be two sunken boats and a fish trap.

In turn, Cruz garnered praise from President Trump, who referred to his former political rival as "Beautiful Ted" in the days ahead of the vote.

"For a whole lot of conservative and moderate Democrats in Texas, they feel like they don't have a home in that national party anymore and we are welcoming them with open arms", Cruz told The Associated Press last week.

The waning moments of the campaign provided Democrats with hope - a Change Research poll had the candidates tied at 49 percent.

Black box from crashed Lion Air jet found
Authorities are looking for the plane's wreckage and "black boxes", which could hold valuable clues as to why the flight crashed . Investigators say that is also indicated by the search and rescue effort finding many body parts rather than intact victims.

Despite the jokes at his expense, Cruz did play along with the bit, even telling a police officer who appeared to be holding Triumph back that everything was okay. Triumph responded by saying "I support spaying and neutering, just like Trump did to you". Given that Conan O'Brien's TBS show "Conan" is on hiatus, Colbert explains at the start of the segment above, O'Brien was happy to loan one of his correspondents, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, to Colbert.
