Posted on 06/15/2020 4:44:51 AM PDT by USA Conservative
Actor Ron Perlman traded barbs with Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida over social media Sunday.
The spat began when Perlman condemned Gaetz for tweeting last week that hed prefer not having a United States national soccer team over having one that wont stand for the National Anthem.
While actor Ron Perlman was already trending on Twitter after sparring with congressmen Matt Gaetz and Jim Jordan on Sunday night, Senator Ted Cruz threw his name into the fight. After Perlman tweeted a photo of Jordan with the caption, Youre lucky for this guy, Matt. If it werent for him youd be the ugliest politician walking, Cruz stood up for his fellow Republican representatives.
Cruz, 49, whos represented Texas in the U.S. Senate since 2013, tweeted that Jordan, 56, could easily beat Perlman, 71, in a wrestling match.
Referring to the actors eponymous role in Guillermo del Toros 2004 superhero film, Cruz said to Perlman, Listen Hellboy. You talk good game when youve got Hollywood makeup & stuntmen. But Ill bet $10k to the nonpolitical charity of your choicethat you couldnt last 5 min in the wrestling ring w/ @Jim_Jordan w/o getting pinned. You up for it? Or does your publicist say too risky?
Perlman couldnt resist challenging Cruz in his response, betting the politician he would donate $50,000 to Black Lives Matter if he winshe also took aim at Ohio congressman Jordons involvement in the Ohio State University wrestling abuse scandal.
I tell you what teddy boy, since mentioning jim jordan and wrestling is problematic, why dont we say f*** him and just make it you & me. Ill give 50k to Black Lives Matter and you can keep all the tax payer money you were thinking of spending.

That kind of tweet “I challenge you to a fight” is always dumb no matter who does it.
Too funny. Is this gonna be a wheelchair match because Perlman’s about 2 yrs older than dirt. The only decent movie Perlman ever made was “Quest for Fire”. Zero dialogue and all he had to do was scratch himself. (Rae Dawn Chong was nekkid.)
Until just now, I didn’t know that Ron Perlman existed. Looking at his Wikipedia page, I learned nothing that I didn’t already know, aside from a few movie titles he’s in that I’ve never seen. I guess Rob Reiner and Michael Rapaport weren’t doing enough.
Tanya Harding popped into my head for some reason.
Ron Perlman actually called Jordon ugly looking?
Wow, has Perlman ever looked in the mirror?
I remember he played the monster in the TV series, Beauty and The Beast. He was more ugly without the monster makeup.
That man can play a caveman!
He’s got the face and stature of someone destined only to play the brutish heavy in films.
A real case of projection. Really.
I heard an interview with Perlman once. He spoke quite a bit about how sensitive he had always been about his appearance. It was a painful interview because he was so incredibly sensitive about it.
Aside from his politics, I think he does a pretty good job as an actor.
Some more than other but I can’t say he exhibits a lot of range. And I’ve seen him phone in some roles.
If Ron can change who he wrestles maybe Ted can do the same and insist that if he’s going to wrestle his opponent should be Allisa Milano
I see three names in the headline:
an idiot who wore a gas-mask on the House floor,
a Hollywood pervert and a
Canadian Senator who began saying the most vile things about President Trump imaginable, until the President pointed out his wife is an ugly dog and his dad is a drunken foreign killer.
Thanks for the post, but I will have to save for later.
Asshat quota is a little high for the AM
Yep. Virtually no range. Best when he plays a villain.
“The only decent movie Perlman ever made was Quest for Fire.
I remember that. Perlman was funny.
Perlmans claim to fame.....TVs Beauty and the Beast....80s era
He wasnt playing the Beauty!
Perlman also has a biracial family.....fwiw
Jordan 6’ 182 Lb.
He won state championships all four years he was in high school and compiled a 156281 win-loss record. He then enrolled at the University of WisconsinMadison where he became a two-time NCAA Division I wrestling champion. Jordan won the 1985 and 1986 NCAA championship matches in the 134-pound weight class. BRING IT!
The President didn’t ‘point out’ anything, he told a lie about Cruz’s father that some folks in the cult were all too willing to believe.
