Someone in the crowd at the Houston Astros World Series victory parade launched a beer can at Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), who was riding on a float at the event.

The Texas senator was first met with boos — which Cruz ignored and just kept waving — from the crowd as he rode by on the back of a truck.


A second video showed Cruz on the back of the truck reacting as a beer can came flying toward him. He and a staffer both reached up at the same time, attempting to deflect the can away with their hands, but it did strike Cruz. The staffer then pointed into the crowd, apparently attempting to show police and parade security officials where the offending beer can had come from.

Cruz took his daughter Catherine to watch the Astros win the World Series:

The Texas Senator, who has been campaigning for Republicans ahead of Tuesday’s midterm elections, also recently made an appearance on ABC’s “The View” — prompting a protest so raucous that the show had to cut to a break.

“Excuse me!” co-host Whoopi Goldberg yelled at the protesters. “Excuse me! Ladies, ladies. Excuse us, let us do our job. Let us do our job. We hear what you have to say but you got to go!”

Goldberg and her co-hosts continued the segment with Cruz, which ended with raised voices and shouting.

Goldberg insisted didn’t like watching Republicans win but argued that Democrats didn’t get violent when they didn’t get their way.

“Whoopi, did I miss an entire year of Antifa riots?” Cruz asked, appearing taken aback. “Where cities across this country were burning … your position is the left doesn’t engage in violence, really?”

The co-hosts all began shouting over each other — and Cruz — prompting him to raise his voice, after which co-host Ana Navarro scolded him for “screaming.”

“You just said we don’t scream at each other, right? Or is it just you that gets to scream?” she asked.
