Former Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz hasn’t been the most popular politician recently, both in votes and in the court of public opinion.
But it was difficult not to like what he did on Tuesday night on Twitter.
A long-running joke on the Internet is that Ted Cruz looks a lot like Duke guard Grayson Allen, another polarizing figure. Politico Magazine ran a feature on the senator from Texas on Monday, which included an anecdote on Cruz starting a weekly basketball game for he and his colleagues.
The folks over at Deadspin wanted proof, presumably to continue to mock, “the perpetual failed candidate for president,” as Ashley Feinberg described him it in her post.
However, Cruz’s response was simply perfect.
