REPUBLICAN SENATOR TED Cruz rose to prominence around the world with his failed bid for the US Presidency last year, followed by his refusal to endorse Trump at the party’s convention.

Last night he was back in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

As New York Daily News reports, the Senator’s Twitter feed showed that his account “liked” a porn video just after midnight on Monday

It was gone by 1.30am, and it’s unclear who was responsible for it, but Twitter has taken it and gone all in with the jokes:

1. It’s a uniting force in US politics right now

2. The eagerly awaited response

3. This is the lighthearted Twitter storm not involving nuclear war threats the world has been waiting for in 2017

4. There were so many Zodiac jokes

5. It was an unfortunate date to be doing anything but respectfully remembering a tragedy

6. Like, this is actually too ridiculous for people to handle

7. In some ways, it’s made Cruz more relatable to the people

8. The next press conference will be interesting

9. Live footage when his staff found out

He famously once said that he doesn’t believe people have the right to masturbate, so the irony is strong.

14. Meanwhile, over in Mike Pence’s hypothetical favs

15. Novelty accounts are having a field day

16. And, to add insult to injury, the porn account that posted the video thanked the Senator for watching
