Heidi Cruz, the ugly as sin wife of Sen. Ted Cruz, confirmed for reporters today that after Hasbro makes the iconic “Mr. Potato Head” toy gender-neutral, it will still have the same exact size balls as her husband.
“Very honestly,” Ugly Hedi told reporters outside the couple’s non-Cancun-in-the-winter home, “when I first med Ted, I thought he was a potato without genitals.”
As ABC reported, Hasbro is making changes not just to Potato Head, but to an array of their products.

Several prominent conservatives in the media have decried Hasbro’s decisions. They claim that attempting to make their toys more inclusive of all children is a step toward “Cultural Marxism,” as Sean Hannity sobbed to his audience. Dan Bongino said in a recent podcast episode that Hasbro was making his “giant satellite of a head throb with sadness and sorrow.” Heidi Cruz, ugly as she is, didn’t seem to care so much.
“I’ve lived with a ball-less potato since Ted and I got married,” Heidi asserted. “I mean, at one point about five years ago, it seemed like he had a really good opportunity to prove he does actually have balls, but here I am ugly as sin still, so clearly not. So why should I care, really, if one of our grandbabies one day plays with one? I’ll still be a proud, ugly as fuck grandma and widow…hopefully. Christ almighty I’m hoping it works out that way, anyway.”
Potato Head, in a written statement, thanked Heidi for her “continued ugliness and support.”
“These days, you just never know how people are going to take things like this,” Potato Head wrote. “While I wish she hadn’t compared me to that sack of dick she calls a husband, at least living with him all these years has given her a sense of empathy she didn’t have for the frozen Texans she abandoned to go play in Mexico for a weekend.”
