Rock singer Pat Benatar is responding to being referenced in a strange rant by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and she needed only two words to hit him with her best shot.

On Wednesday, Cruz was being interviewed by conservative talk-show host Joe “Pags” Pagliarulo as he tried to explain why President Joe Biden is so popular in the U.S. Senate.

However, Cruz’s reasoning was bizarre and included references to devil costumes, the full moon, child murder and, strangest of all, the 1980s-era Rock & Roll Hall of Famer:

“I don’t think Senate Democrats, if you had video of Joe Biden murdering children dressed as the devil under a full moon while singing Pat Benatar, they still wouldn’t vote to convict.”

Although Cruz’s comments may have been a reference to Benatar’s song “Hell Is for Children,” it seemed odd, considering that song is a condemnation of child abuse.

Not surprisingly, Benatar’s fans jumped to her defense, but the singer and husband Neil Giraldo stayed out of it until Friday, when they posted a brief two-word response to the senator on Facebook: “Nice try!”

HuffPost reached out to Benatar but didn’t receive an immediate response.

Her publicist told Variety that the singer, who rarely makes public political statements, would not comment further on Cruz’s devilishly foolish comment.

Cruz hasn’t made any further comments referencing Benatar, but if things get heated, one Twitter user had the obvious solution: A dance-off, like in Benatar’s iconic 1983 music video for “Love Is a Battlefield.”
