AFTER DARK

Ted Cruz’s Official Twitter Account Liked a Porn Video

Sen. Ted Cruz’s Twitter account—for one historic moment—liked a very explicit porn video from the account @SexuallPosts late Monday night, creating a firestorm of jokes online. In the two-minute hard-core video, a woman reportedly comes home and discovers a couple having sex on her living-room couch and begins to masturbate. Early Tuesday, the Texas senator‘s spokeswoman, Catherine Frazier, addressed the senator’s Twitter activity on her own account, noting that “the offensive tweet posted on @tedcruz account earlier has been removed by staff and reported to Twitter.”
