Jimmy Kimmel had a lot to say about the Twitter account of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) liking a porn video by mistake.

 “Just think: if only he’d done something this perverted during the campaign, he might be president right now,” Kimmel quipped of the senator.

The host admitted that blaming a staffer for the Twitter mishap was "suspicious." But he doesn't really believe Cruz, hater of dildos, is responsible.

“I honestly don’t think it was Ted Cruz. I don’t think Ted Cruz looks at porn," Kimmel said. "Ted Cruz masturbates to pictures of poor people without healthcare.”
