Apparently homicide jokes are all the rage this election.

It wasn’t long ago that South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham quipped about killing Ted Cruz on the Senate floor, and now the Texas senator is making waves with a violent joke of his own.

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night, Cruz quipped that he would consider running over GOP front-runner Donald Trump in a car if the opportunity presented itself.

“If I were in my car and getting ready to reverse and saw Donald in the backup camera, I’m not confident which pedal I’d push,” Cruz said in response to Kimmel’s earlier skit about April Fool’s Day pranks.

The crack follows a heated Twitter feud between the two GOP hopefuls about each other’s wives. After an anti-Trump super PAC released a nude meme involving Trump’s wife, Melania, the billionaire businessman fired back by posting an unflattering photo of Cruz’s wife, Heidi.

When Kimmel asked Cruz on Wednesday whom he liked more, President Obama or Trump, Cruz replied, “I dislike Obama’s policies more, but Donald is a unique individual.”
