After Twitter Porn Snafu, Moralizer Ted Cruz Is Not Going to Have a Good Day

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, who ran for president in 2016 and is a favorite of the Christian right, will be fighting a public relations battle on Tuesday as he faces tough questions about why his official Twitter account "liked" a pornographic video on Monday night.

As the New York Post reports:

In the clip posted by a porno-video account called @SexuallPosts, a blonde woman who vaguely resembles Cruz's wife Heidi enthusiastically watches as two naked people have sex on a couch.

Cruz, a Republican senator from Texas, is known for his strong religious convictions and family values stance — and once even supported a ban on sex toys.

Cruz unliked the video after about an hour early Tuesday morning.

The internet, of course, quickly sprung into action, capturing screenshots and prepping the senator for the torrent of criticism and jabs to come.

Many felt it necessary to note in the context of his Twitter activity that Cruz "once argued that Americans have no 'due process' right to masturbate."

Craig Mazin, a screenwriter who was Cruz's Princeton roommate, reacted to the "Twitter porn controversy" Monday night, writing: "Sadly, the fact that Ted Cruz jacks off to mediocre porn spam is the most human thing we can say about him. This is actually his high point."

"Now imagine Ted Cruz is doing this four feet below you in the bottom bunk bed," Mazin added. "Yes, my misery very much appreciates your company."
