Cruz Blames Staff For Liking Porn

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.

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.

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. http://www.popularmechanics.com/military/a6384/debunking-911-myths-world...
