Texas Sen. Ted Cruz found himself in the hot seat on Wednesday night as Jimmy Kimmel grilled him on a variety of topics ranging from politics to the inane.

After telling Kimmel why he wanted law enforcement to “patrol Muslim neighborhoods,” Cruz joked that Kimmel was on a Muslim watch list because of his beard. He then turned the conversation to Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, saying that, while he disliked President Obama’s policies more, Trump was a special case.

“If I were in my car and getting ready to reverse and saw Donald in the back-up camera,” he said, “I’m not confident which pedal I’d push.”

What followed was a rapid-fire round of questions during which Cruz missed a prime opportunity to deny that he was the infamous Zodiac Killer.
