The day after his bromance with Donald Trump hit a rough patch, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is trying to smooth things over with Cher.
The singer and actress, who has had harsh words for the Texas Republican in the past, tweeted some more Friday.

Cruz, as he has done with Trump, decided to respond in an extra-nice way Saturday.
Cher, thanks for the kind sentiments. And I wish you a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year. https://t.co/2iNXeOsvCN

Why are these two talking to each other? There's a history. Cher has slammed Cruz in the past. On Twitter in June, someone asked the singer if she liked Donald Trump or Ted Cruz better; she responded by tweeting, "that's like saying 'would you rather have a Migraine or Throw Up'?"
Cruz has taken some knocks at Cher as well. In an October fundraising email that ticked off the many enemies Cruz has made, Cher is counted as one.
