Ted Cruz Caught In Morning Pornography Scandal & The Internet Collectively Died Laughing (TWEETS)


Ted Cruz is not a highly likable guy. The smarmy, self-satisfied senator from Texas, whose father claimed he was hand chosen by God himself to run for president, often comes off as a pompous blowhard with a superiority complex. It is not difficult to see where the disdain for Cruz and his ideology comes from.

Because of his staunch religious beliefs, Cruz is the same man who fought an online retailer of sex toys to court while arguing that they had no right to privacy because “there is no substantive-due-process right to stimulate one’s genitals for non-medical purposes unrelated to procreation or outside of an interpersonal relationship.” Whether it was Cruz or his legal team who uttered that exact argument, but Cruz’s participation in that Texas case has been much derided and discussed on social media. It is a case for which Senator Cruz will long be remembered.

Imagine the shock and glee, then, when Twitter users discovered in the wee hours of Tuesday morning that Cruz had liked a porn site’s tweet, which included a hardcore video depicting a couple cheating on their spouses.

The tweet was “unliked” by Cruz’s Twitter account and quickly reported to the online social media company, and his spokespeople quickly gave a statement about the incident, but not before screenshots began circulating and utter hilarity ensued.







Perhaps the best response, however, came from the Twitter account of the porn site that Ted Cruz “liked,” which now advertises itself as “the porn @TedCruz watches.”
