    Ted Cruz "likes" p 0 r n clip on Twitter

    http://www.newsweek.com/ted-cruz-twi...-ensues-663267


    The excuses are almost inevitable, and predictable: The account was hacked, possibly by those pesky Russians. Or some rogue intern got hold of the social media, a secret Democrat intent on sabotage. Whatever the case, it is all but certain that Ted Cruz, the conservative Republican who serves as the junior Senator from Texas, will deny having "liked" a pornographic clip on Twitter.

    The facts are as follows: On Monday evening, the account belonging to Cruz "liked" a video clip posted by @SexuallPosts, an account whose sole purpose is disseminating pornographic videos. That clip, 2 minutes and 20 seconds in length, has a woman walking into what appears to be her house. There, she discovers a couple having sexual intercourse. She proceeds to watch them, to her own evident pleasure.
    The Cruz account retracted the "like" as soon as it began to attract the attention of Twitter users. By then, of course, it was too late.






    Of course, many people like pornography for many reasons. Most of those people, however, are not moralizing conservative politicians known to regularly profess the profundity of their Christian faith. Cruz has frequently railed against gay marriage while casting himself as a pious defender of the republic. In the strident tones of a doomsday preacher, he has maligned "New York values" while promising to defend the last vestiges of Western civilization, if only the good citizens of the nation were willing to make him their president. (Of course, Donald Trump won the Republican candidacy.)
    It is therefore not at all surprising that many on Monday night chose not to wait for the Senator's explanation before casting him as a hypocrite worthy of derision:

    This is the night that Ted Cruz became president.

    Somebody forgot to switch accounts.....
    Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.

    I don't want to think about Ted Cruz watching porn. Ever.

    I'm not sure if the headline writer who penned this one should be fired or get a raise, but it's got to be one or the other, no?

    I vote for a raise. It was no accident.
