Ted Cruz Blames His Liked Porn Tweet On An Aide

in Left Wing Nation/Politics/Republican Hypocrisy/Republican Stupidity/Social Media by

In addition to destroying the federal government, Ted Cruz has also made it his life’s goal to control what people do with their genitals. That’s what made it so ironic — in the sense that it’s always ironic when these moral crusaders wind up having all the fiber of white bread — when a tweet “liking” a porn video turned up on his Twitter feed. But don’t worry, since we know exactly why it happened: it was a staffing error.

Cruz’s office maintains that it was a “mistake” and it wasn’t “malicious” in nature:

There are a number of people on the team who have access on the account. It appears that someone inadvertently hit the like button. When we discovered the post, which was I guess an hour or two later, we pulled it down. It was a staffing issue. And it was inadvertent, it was a mistake. It was not a deliberate act. We’re dealing with internally, but it was a mistake. It was not malicious.

Now, far be it from me to judge what other people like. So long as it isn’t hurting other people without their consent, you do whatever makes you happy. But Cruz is a different situation; moral crusaders who demand the rest of us be held to a high standard deserve to be held to that similarly high standard themselves.

And frankly, it’s nobody’s fault but Cruz’s that he falls short time and again. That’s what makes stories like this so entertaining. Well, that and Cruz looks like the nightmarish hellspawn of Martin Shkreli and Mr. Bean, and nobody likes a moralistic Backpfeifengesicht.

Now, I am willing to believe this was a mistake. Cruz may be a self-righteous hypocrite, but let’s face it: when we “learn” that for a fact, it won’t be as a result of a porn tweet on his Twitter. It’ll be because he gets caught in a bathroom explaining the “wide stance” of the Kamikaze Caucus to the next stall over.
