So a few minutes ago I’m on Twitter when I see Ted Cruz is trending.

Which was surprising, because, well, why would Ted Cruz trend at 10 pm in Los Angeles? So I clicked on the #tedcruz hashtag and saw this …

OK. Easy enough.

As instructed, I visited Ted Cruz’s Twitter profile …

I looked at the first LIKED video …

It was hard-core porn.

Here’s the crazy thing. The video has now been up for a good while. Cruz has surged to the top of Twitter trending—with a bullet. Surely someone who works in his office is now aware of this. Surely someone is being woken up with, “SHIT! SHIT! SHIT! SHIT!” Surely Ted Cruz is freaking out.

But it’s still there.

Still there.

Still there.

And the Twitter comments are priceless …

Wait.

Wait.

It’s 10:28—about an hour after he started trending.

The LIKE has been removed.
