Kimmel Zings Ted Cruz For ‘Liking’ Porn Video

Social conservative Republican senator Ted Cruz embroiled himself in an embarrassing scandal recently when his Twitter account mysteriously “liked” a bisexual pornographic video.

Senator Cruz has defended himself by claiming that this was the work of an unnamed staffer and had nothing to do with him directly. In a recent broadcast, late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel offered tongue-in-cheek “proof” about why Sen. Cruz could not, in fact, have been the person who “liked” the porn video.

Kimmel began his program by showing a clip of Senator Cruz laying blame on a staffer for “liking” the video. Commented Jimmy after it finished, “Is this person you? Because that staffing issue sounds suspicious.” He continued, dropping a spot-on burn, “I really honestly don’t think it was Ted Cruz. I don’t think Ted Cruz looks at porn. Ted Cruz masturbates to pictures of poor people without health care.” Added Jimmy, “But you know, some of his supporters are concerned this has become a big story. They’re so concerned, one of his super PACs released a new ad today that I think makes it very clear where Ted Cruz stands on adult entertainment.”

Kimmel screened a mock commercial from Ted Cruz’s team that included many uncomplimentary photos of the senator. The fake ad’s narrator asked, “Does this look like a man who watches porn on his phone?” He continued about Ted, “Do you really believe this Princeton-educated man is so unaware of how to indulge his sexual urges in a healthy way, he memorized the name of a Twitter porn handle so he could come back later and watch the videos without following the account itself? No. You don’t. Because it’s not true. Ted Cruz. Never masturbates. For America.” Chimed in someone impersonating Cruz’s voice, “I’m Ted Cruz and I touched myself last night.” After the video ended, Kimmel commented, “What? Oh, my goodness. That’s a hell of an admission. You know what Ted Cruz’s porn name is? It’s Ted Cruz.” Do you think Kimmel’s parody video is close to the truth? Watch below:
