Ted Cruz Blames Porn Tweet on a 'Staffing Issue'

13 Septembre 2017

We're just going to bet that Sen. Is @SexuallPosts a favorite account of his?

Cruz's senior communications advisor tweeted at 11 p.m.to acknowledge the tweet and say that it had been removed.

In the brief, Cruz argued that banning obscene devices was in the public interest, and the government should be granted "police powers" for the purposes of "discouraging prurient interests in sexual gratification, combating the commercial sale of sex, and protecting minors". Late in the day-maybe because he thought no one was watching?-Cruz's account made the clip its 1,248th like.

Cruz has always been an opponent of pornography, presenting himself as a family values politician.

One of the first reactions was disbelief at discovering that the senator, who a year ago voted in favour of an amendment to the Republican Party platform describing pornography as a "public health crisis" that destroys lives, had apparently been caught in the act.

Ted Cruz's former roommate in college, HBO writer Craig Mazin, even joined the pile-on, saying that Cruz used to beat off in their dorm room.

Quipped another: "Liking a porn tweet is by far the least offensive, most normal thing Ted Cruz has ever done". "Yes, my misery very much appreciates your company". Look, I posted this story because it was amusing, and it gave me a chance to rattle off some more "nobody likes Ted Cruz" jokes, but as I also mentioned before, Ted Cruz maybe watching porn is the single most likable thing about him. "This is actually his high point".

"I never wanted this for any of you". Comedy is tragedy that happens to other people, and there's no greater "there but for the grace of god go I, but I better roast this fucker right now anyway" moment than the accidental porn tweet. Not six billion. That said? He called him an "a**hole" in a 2012 tweet. What kind of therapist should I see to get the mental image of Ted Cruz getting himself off out of my brain? "This would be a new belief of his".
