Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was given a suggestion he could refuse.
A prankster duo often called The Good Liars asked the lawmaker for an autograph. He appeared able to comply until he got a more in-depth have a look at what he was expected to sign.
It was a replica of a National Enquirer cover story linking Cruz’s father, Rafael Cruz, to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, something then-rival Donald Trump used against him on the campaign trail.
Despite Trump’s attacks on his father ― in addition to insults aimed toward his wife ― Cruz has turn out to be considered one of Trump’s staunchest allies and a defender of the “big lie” in regards to the 2020 election.
Cruz could have declined to offer an autograph, but he did give Good Liars Jason Selvig and Davram Stiefler some satisfaction by noting he’d seen the duo’s “silly videos.”
