Ted Cruz Has Been Ridiculed for Years by His Former College Roommate Who Turned into a Successful Screenwriter
Craig Mazin is a successful screen writer in Hollywood. He also attended the prestigious Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey. In fact, Craig Mazin attended that school at the exact same time as presidential hopeful, and all around cretin, Ted Cruz. Even more in fact, Craig Mazin’s freshman year roommate was the aforementioned cretin, and presidential horrorshow candidate Ted Cruz. Craig Mazin wants you and anybody listening to know that Ted Cruz is as terrible as he seems, maybe worse—and it’s sort of hilarious.Back in 2013 Mazin spoke to The Daily Beast about Cruz:
In addition to Mazin and Leitch, several fellow classmates who asked that their names not be used described the young Cruz with words like “abrasive,” "intense," “strident,” “crank,” and “arrogant." Four independently offered the word “creepy,” with some pointing to Cruz’s habit of donning a paisley bathrobe and walking to the opposite end of their dorm’s hallway where the female students lived.
“I would end up fielding the [girls’] complaints: 'Could you please keep your roommate out of our hallway?'" Mazin says.
And the idea that his freshman roommate could someday be the leader of the free world? “I would rather have anybody else be the president of the United States. Anyone,” Mazin said. “I would rather pick somebody from the phone book."
Here’s Mazin back in 2013 talking about Cruz on the Scriptnotes Podcast:
And, you know, I want to be clear, because Ted Cruz is a nightmare of a human being. I have plenty of problems with his politics, but truthfully his personality is so awful that 99 percent of why I hate him is just his personality. If he agreed with me on every issue, I would hate him only one percent less.
Craig Mazin has not stopped trolling his former roommate. His twitter account is a source of fun walks down memory lane:
