Amid a raging COVID-19 pandemic, GOP Senator Ted Cruz took to some time to rail against Trevor Noah’s “The Daily Show” this week over a segment calling out gender reveal parties, with the Republican joking that “many liberal males never grow balls.”
Cruz wrote his comment in a retweet of an article from the right-wing website The Daily Wire, which critiqued Noah for railing against gender reveal parties.
A fair point. Many liberal males never grow balls…. https://t.co/FhHmIPFUpJ

In Tuesday’s episode of the Comedy Central show, Noah referenced the fact that one of the three major wildfires currently burning in California was sparked by a gender reveal party.
Noah said he believed the practice of celebrating a baby’s gender was “outdated.”
“Celebrating a baby’s genitalia is starting to feel very outdated,” Noah said. “Like, given everything we’re learning about gender, gender reveal parties should only happen when the child is old enough to know their actual gender.”
Trevor Noah fired back at Cruz on Twitter, writing: “Remind me Senator are balls the things you had when Trump destroyed you, insulted your wife’s face, said your dad killed JFK, hijacked your party and all you did was kiss his ass??”

Cruz has previously used gender identity to attack Democrats, with a March tweet from the senator joking that “Bernie identifies as every gender, simultaneously.”
