26 Ted Cruz Porn Memes & Tweets That Are Painfully Hilarious

One of the most stringent "family values" politicians in the United States is now embroiled in a sex scandal, and the comedic irony of the incident has proven far too enjoyable for people to pass up. Hundreds of thousands have taken to social media to roast the Texas senator whose Twitter account liked a porn video. These memes and tweets about Ted Cruz's porn scandal are deeply satisfying, so take a moment to indulge in some schadenfreude on this fine morning.

Cruz (or someone on his staff) liked a tweet from an account called Sexuall Posts late on Monday, and by Tuesday morning, the news had gone global. In response, his spokeswoman, Catherine Frazier, tweeted:

The offensive tweet posted on @tedcruz account earlier has been removed by staff and reported to Twitter.

Cruz is a notoriously conservative, particularly sexually restrictive politician, and since the GOP so often butters its bread by portraying itself as the party of "family values," this incident is especially gratifying for Cruz's opponents. No one is really saying there's anything wrong with him watching porn — the reason it's so funny is because porn is contrary to all the conservative social beliefs that Cruz spouts in his stump speeches. Whether or not it was even Cruz himself who liked the tweet, the backfire to his reputation is simply hilarious.

The country honestly needed a little collective levity right now, so we kind of owe Cruz a debt of gratitude in a way. Thank you Ted Cruz's Twitter account, America truly appreciates it.
