Dennis Rodman has fired back at Ted Cruz, who mentioned the outlandish basketball great as he tore into Donald Trump during Thursday's Republican presidential debate.

Rodman took offense when the Texas senator trashed Trump's political chops by saying while the billionaire developer was "firing Dennis Rodman on 'Celebrity Apprentice,'" Cruz was busy opposing the "Gang of Eight" immigration reform bill.

Rodman shot back on Twitter:


Cruz should have expected the wrath of "The Worm," as Rodman is fondly called.

Last July, the NBA Hall-of-Famer was one of the first celebrities to endorse Trump for president.


Trump responded:


Rodman's fans have had fun with the endorsement, proposing that Trump, if he wins the White House, appoint the former Chicago Bulls and San Antonio Spurs star as secretary of state.

Rodman is notorious for his trips to North Korea to visit Kim Jong Un, the country's despot supreme leader. The unlikely pair became close friends after Rodman traveled there to film a basketball documentary for HBO.

Rodman has called Jong Un — who has threatened to use nuclear weapons against the United States — "an awesome guy" and a "friend for life."
