Ted Cruz is trending on Twitter because he didn’t know you could see his ‘likes’

This is probably going to be the best story of the week. Just FYI. If you got up bright and early this morning, you might have noticed that “Ted Cruz” is trending on Twitter. His name has been trending since the wee hours because the junior senator from Texas “liked” some p0rn videos and of course everyone can see those “likes” on his Twitter page. It’s funny because Senator Ted Cruz: A) is probably the Zodiac Killer, B) wants to ban many forms of birth control, C) has been in favor of sex toy bans and D) is one of those churchy, holier-than-thou Bible-thumpers.

So of course Twitter threw a party about Ted Cruz’s “liked” p0rn videos:

    Whenever I hear about something dumb that Cruz does, I have to go to Craig Mazin’s Twitter feed…and I’m never disappointed.

  2. QueenB says:

    LOL at the name “Sexuall Posts” I can totally see him searching these exact words. He probably also googles “How to make my boner freaking huge”

  3. Lucy2 says:

    You know that happy/surprised face Aziz Ansari did on Parks and Rec? That’s me right now.

  4. Jenns says:

    His staff has no idea how Twitter works. They are trying to claim that someone posted it to his account. The video wasn’t posted, it was “Liked”. Huge difference.

    For the first time in history, people will be eagerly awaiting what Ted Cruz has to say about this. I can’t wait for his next news conference.

    Such a scummy nasty hypocrite. I’ve been reading the Twitter responses and they are comedy gold. I live in Austin and spend a good bit of time calling and emailing his office every time he votes for some horrible thing. I have a deep loathing for him and his politics and can’t help but enjoy this.

    • Jerusha says:

      You live in Austin! Lucky girl. Do the bats still fly from underneath the bridge? My great nephew just moved there and I told him to go see them.

      • JA says:

        The bats are the only thing still Austin in Austin unfortunately. The real estate prices along with the cost of living has skyrocketed… we basically became too popular too fast for our own good. Sorry 15+yrs living here and my husband and I were discussing where we could move if living here and having children was far too expensive. If Amazons new HQ is stationed here, that’s the end of this city and its middle/working-class … </3

      • Jerusha says:

        Yeah, I would have fit in/loved the 70s Cosmic Cowboy Austin, but the high tech/high cost Austin in not for me. The last time I was there was mid 90s when a bunch of musicians I like did a fund raiser for Ann Richards.

      • Lindy says:

        Sadly, have to agree that Austin is crazy expensive and lacks the infrastructure to support the growing population. I’m stuck here for ten more years because my son’s father lives here and we share custody, but the minute he goes to college my husband and I will move away. And as great as Austin can sometimes be it’s still surrounded by the rest of Texas.

  8. Nicole says:

    lol I laughed so hard at this.
    Also Ted Cruz’ former roommate blessed us with more tweets about this situation so we are blessed.

  9. Shambles says:

    Lmao. This man is human dish soap. Even his p0rn is stupid and boring.

    I kind of shrug at this. Whatever. The president is a serial molestor of women. So whatever. Nothing matters.

    • Lyla says:

      Yeah, supposedly his p0rn is about being jealous other people have friends. Lol. That certainly adds to the thinking that among republicans and democrats in congress, no one likes him.

      Speaking of the molester in chief, jon favreau tweeted “this is the night ted Cruz became president.” That’s how much the office of presidency had fallen.

    always the holier than thou ones….always

  11. Aiobhan Targaryen says:

    I usually don’t like to kink shame or shame people who watch porn, but I am more than happy to step aside and allow people to humiliate this gross humanoid with abandon.

  12. Eric says:

    Someone should create a T Cruz favorites of the porn he likes.
    Cruisin with Cruz

  13. Giddy says:

    Cruz claims to be human, but is actually a combination of a weasel and lizard. His personality is pure jackal and he smells of sulpher. To know him is to loathe him. As a Texan I apologize to all that my state elected him.

  14. Horse Marine says:


    Just the title of this post… mwah! Delicious.

  15. Wow says:

    Someone probably hacked the old fart, but still…it’s rather funny.

  16. Tiffany says:

    I did not know that he was fronting to ban sex toys. That bastard.

  17. adastraperaspera says:

    Bwahahahahaha! No way. Hahahahahaa! Makes my day.

  18. JenB says:

    I wonder if his former college roomie offered any thoughts on this? lol

  19. Feedmechips says:

    Don’t worry, I’m sure he was “hacked.”

  20. Chaine says:

    3—-2—-1— until “after prayerful consideration” he “takes time away from Washington to focus on my family”. Vomit.

  21. Reef says:

    Watching this happen on Twitter in real time was bizarre. He was feeling saucy so he typed in “Sexual Posts”. All the places on the internet where you can get porn why twitter and why in gif form.

  22. Holly565 says:

    A more accurate post title is “Ted Cruz confuses his professional account with the secret one he uses for porn.”

  23. ArchieGoodwin says:

    All I know of Ted Cruz comes from watching his questioning of Sally Yates.

    That was all I ever needed to know.

    Since then, however, I’ve read about him and his “politics”. This couldn’t have happened to a better person, but that’s not true either.Sessions, Cruz, that turtle guy, Paul Ryan, trump, the list of people is endless.

  24. Helen Smith says:

    The next time Ted gives a speech put him on mute and watch how he moves. He has virtually zero facial expressions and moves left and right in tempo like he is a metronome or a machine on a timer. It is robotic and mechanical. It makes me wonder if he doesn’t have aspbergers syndrome or something.

  25. FLebel says:

    Go Beto O’Rourke! Please beat this POS Cruz in next year’s senatorial election. Texans, please come to your senses, and rid yourselves, and the rest of the country, of this truly bad man.

  26. nikzilla says:

    Right-wing hypocrisy at its finest!

  27. Elysium1973 says:

    I don’t know if anyone remembers this, but Ted Cruz did a political campaign commercial about Marco Rubio last year and later found out that a former porn star was in the commercial.
    So the actress, Amy Lindsey, lived down the street from me (and our parents still live down the street from each other). She’s three years older than me and so she was our most frequent babysitter throughout my childhood. We’re friends on Facebook and she’s a total pill – and completely hilarious. She thinks Ted Cruz is a major tool. He’s literally the WORST.
    Anyway, anything that embarrasses and humiliates him delights me to no end.

  28. Shannon says:

    And this had to happen on a day when I worked all day! But OMG I have been dying since I got home and read about this. I mean, literally, I laughed to the point of tears LOL epic!
