Good Times: Ted Cruz Likes A Porn Tweet

The Twitterverse is all “atwitter” about Republican Sen. Ted Cruz this morning as several intrepid readers noticed that the junior senator from Texas “Liked” a pornographic tweet.

While Cruz’s communications director issued a statement saying the “Like” had been deleted, there was no explanation as to why it appeared in the first place.

Let’s face it – the simple reason would be that Cruz saw the tweet and actually did like it.

It’s all quite funny especially in light of Cruz’s holier than thou religious statements in the past, as well as his involvement in a 2007 court case in Texas about banning the use of sex toys.

Acting as solicitor general for the state of Texas, he defended the state ban on so-called “marital aids” writing, “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.”

That statement struck a lot of folks’ funny bones, particularly his former college roommate who apparently remembers Cruz enjoying some personal “stimulation” back in the day.

In any case, we all now await the certain denial from Cruz that he actually had anything to do with the porno post today. Of course he’ll say he was hacked.

In the meantime, the Twitterverse had fun:

UPDATE – Sen. Ted Cruz told addressed the issue with reporters on Capitol Hill this morning:

“This is not how I envisioned waking up this morning. There are a number of people on the team that have access to the account and it appears that someone inadvertently hit the like button. And when we discovered the post, which I was I guess an hour or two later, we pulled it down. We’re dealing with it internally, but it was a mistake, it was not malicious conduct.”
