We have some important news to bring you at this late hour: on the evening of September 11th, 2017, the Twitter account belonging to Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) faved a porn video from the account "Sexuall Posts" (here is an archived shot of his likes, since it took way too long for someone to tell him to unfavorite it). Given the late hour, it seems unlikely it was a social media intern using the account (although that possibility is within the realm of believability) - and if it wasn't an intern, it was very likely Ted Cruz himself closing out the 9/11 anniversary by being extremely horny on Twitter.

Note that there is no shame in this - consumption of pornography can be rewarding and healthy, and there's no need to stigmatize sexual urges. However, it IS extremely funny that Ted Cruz was faving porn tweets around midnight of 9/11 USING HIS OFFICIAL VERIFIED TWITTER ACCOUNT (and the previous favorite he gave was to a guy voting for Ted as the Football Guy of the Week).

Adding fuel to the fire that it was none other than the Senator himself faving the tweet - compare the actress in the porn video to Ted's actual wife. It's actually kind of sweet to imagine he actively searches out pornstars that remind of him of his wife!



And now, the internet is reacting exactly as you suspect they would:















UPDATE: A few more people have weighed in - like Ted Cruz's former college roommate, Craig Mazin:



...and even @SexuallPosts themselves:



...WHO ALSO CHANGED THEIR BIO TO THIS, WE ARE SO BLESSED:

Note that there is also precedence for this - Cruz has publicly talked about watching pornography in the past (and alongside Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor), although that was specifically for a court case, so hard to say whether that counts or not:

And in case you were, uh, curious about the post the account of Mr. Cruz favorite'd, here it is.
