FORMER presidential candidate Ted Cruz appears to have liked a hardcore porn video on Twitter. The clip liked by Cruz's account is from a longer video produced by the porn website Reality Kings. "The pornographic post in question had initially been shared by an account using the handle @SexuallPosts, and screen shots of the post from Cruz's page show a graphic sexual video". She stays to watch, "to her own evident pleasure", as Newsweek puts it.

The internet, of course, quickly sprung into action, capturing screenshots and prepping the senator for the torrent of criticism and jabs to come.

"This is not how I envisioned waking up this morning", Cruz told reporters.

Cruz, as the solicitor general of Texas in 2007, also helped defend the state against the sale of sex toys.

"Congratulations to Ted Cruz for surpassing "It" as the creepiest thing millions of people saw this week", posted an account going by the name "Half An Onion".

Some predicted that Cruz would claim his account was hacked and said they were eagerly awaiting his statement. But he's best-known for calling Cruz a "huge a$$hole" and mocking him on Twitter-which he did, with vigor, following the p0rn controversy.

U.S. steps up Qatar crisis diplomacy, lauds Kuwait's mediation
Kuwait is a staunch American ally trying to mediate a festering diplomatic crisis involving Qatar and its Arab neighbors. He said both sides wanted peace and that the United States had "tremendous talent" working on the problem.


Mr Cruz has however previously admitted to viewing porn.

Ted Cruz's Twitter account, it was not liked.

He said at the time: "There is no substantive-due-process right to stimulate one's genitals for non-medical purposes unrelated to procreation or outside of an interpersonal relationship".

Cruz went on to joke about the situation, remarking that a year ago he should have posted "something like this back during the IN primary".

It's not the first time Cruz has discussed porn-watching publicly.
