According to his staff, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) definitely did not "like" a porn tweet on Twitter. Nope. He'd never do such a thing.

Unfortunately for Cruz, his account did in fact like the porn tweet. And the New York Daily News caught a screengrab before the Cruz camp unliked it.

To review, this is the same Ted Cruz who once wrote a 76-page argument in defense of banning dildos. “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," the real-life legal brief said.

Cruz seemed to feel differently as a college student, when he made a crude joke about wanting to star in a sleazy movie.
