Cruz Blames Staff For Liking Porn

Tyler Durden's picture

Well, that's awkward.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was trending on Twitter this morning after his official Senate account "liked" a pornographic video...

As The Hill reported, the tweet was from the account @SexuallPosts and includes a clip from a pornographic video. The like remained for nearly an hour before being undone by Cruz's team around 1:20 a.m, according to The Verge.

Some claimed Cruz was hacked. But as The Hill reports, Cruz is blaming a "staffing issue" saying it was a mistake rather than a malicious hack.

"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," Cruz said.

When pressed if it was Cruz personally who "liked" the tweet, Cruz said "it was a staffing issue, and it was inadvertent, it was a mistake, it was not a deliberate action."

"We’re dealing with it internally, but it was a mistake, it was not malicious conduct," Cruz added.

Cruz also joked that publicity surrounding the tweet could have helped his failed 2016 GOP presidential bid.

"This is not how I envisioned waking up this morning," he added.

 

"Although I will say that if I had known that this would trend so quickly, perhaps we should have posted something like this back during the Indiana primary."

The tweet, which included a clip from a pornographic video, was up for nearly an hour before being deleted by Cruz's team around 1:20 a.m.

This is much ado about nothing.

I am not a fan but there are so many other things out there that are more objectionable or impt.

It was an act of Jesus-like solidarity with Kurt Eichenwald, David Kramer, Anthony Weiner

A persecuted, discrimated minority that deserves our full compassion and unconditional support.

The SEC says there is nothing wrong with porn.

And Obama adds, "as long as it's porn with diversity!" it's ok. Anonymous sources alledge Barry prefers " the oreo" and "sandwich" varieties.

He must be taking notes from Anthony Weiner.

My response: Tyrannical "IN-YOUR-FACE" lawlessness on PARADE by leaders for our youth to see. 

If we DO NOT start to see justice in this land of America, the building blocks for total ANARCHY and DEBAUCHERY will have been laid. What is good for the geese is good for the gander.

Are you listening TRUMP ADMINISTRATION?

By the way, the FANG stocks are PUSHING THIS CRAP all of the time in email, entertainment and advertisements. SPAM in our SOCIETY is completely OUT OF CONTROL. Our youth and leaders are showing signs of being completely defiled and unqualified for public office of any kind.

Critical thinking skills and a strong work ethic are the building blocks to anarchy.

Hey, porn is one of the few industries O'Sama did not dstroy. In fact, it has grown from $300 Billion when Soweeto took office, to over $800 Billion when he was thrown out in 2016.

GUS100CORRINA's picture

Critical Thinking or the lack of it????

Anarchy is emotional fear driven behavior last time I looked. Everyone did what was right in their own eyes without reason or purpose like ANTIFA, BLM, KKK, etc.

Judges 21:25

25 In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.

MrTouchdown's picture

I feel where you're going, but just to be clear - those groups are communist, totalitarian, super-regime types - not Anarchist.

Anarchy would be rules without rulers, where we each hold the other accountable without the use of violence, lest a state be born.

He was just trying to show his wife and kids that this kind of thing is really out there, because they didn't believe him.

Nobody is hitting the like button on that, not even by mistake.

Huma has it liked, saved, and is the videographer

Not sure that is correct, as Debbie might be a totally devoted fan of 'handballing', but not the case with Corrupt Clinton.

I thought it was called "fisting."

Would have been funnier had it been a gay porn video.

SWRichmond's picture

Someone will surely make that happen...around election time next time.  This time was an op test.

Was the staff member in Russia at the time?

thatthingcanfly's picture

An "op test?" Jeez.

No need to jump to conspiracy theory. It was probably just as Ted said it was: a mistake by a staffer.

RumpleShitzkin's picture

Yup. And building 7 fell...well...just because.

Numbnuts.

thatthingcanfly's picture

Ugh. Again?

WTC 7 was badly damaged by the fall of the North Tower. One of its two interior support columns was virtually taken out. Then, fires further damaged and weakened the support structure. When it began to collapse on the side of the weakened support column, the lateral strains on the remaining support beams (strains the building was not designed to withstand) pulled the building apart from the inside, and it collapsed fairly quickly once the initial cascade began. The only remarkable thing is that it took so long for the building to begin its collapse.

The guy who said, "Pull it," was referring to "pulling out" the emergency responders, firefighters and the like, once it became apparent there was no saving the building, and that protecting the lives of those responders was the highest priority.

This stuff was covered well over a decade ago.

Yeah. It was covered, alright.

Numbnuts.

Personally I prefered the dissolving plane at the pentagon and also the knack for buildings with important files to be hit.

The more someone tries to act like a jesus freak, the more I know they are hiding some perversion.

Lyin' ted is about the sleaziest oil slick you'll ever see. Probably means he fantasizes about male goats.

"Inadvertently hit the like button"

So they were "inadvertently" surfing Sexuallposts twitter feed as well I guess?

It was a Russian pissing site, just after they watched German skat.

Get onto this Mueller- digging in shit and piss for the Mob in Washington is your mandate.
