Ted Cruz says aide inadvertently caused his porn Twitter post

SHOCKING: US Senator Ted Cruz 'likes' porn video on Twitter

Ted Cruz has been reported to Twitter for liking porn

But here's the rub.

"If I had known that this would trend so quickly, perhaps we should have posted something like this during the IN primary", Cruz said Tuesday at the Capitol, according to NBC News reporter Frank Thorp.

Frazier mistakenly said the video was posted to Cruz's account, not liked.

Especially because when he was Texas's solicitor general, his legal team wrote a brief defending a ban on the sale of sex toys which quoted a line attacking masturbation.

Apple TV 4K Adds Pixels, HDR for $179
The Apple TV works with iPhone and iPad, letting people watch photos and videos from their portable devices on the big screen. The black hockey-puckish case of the Apple TV has largely stayed the same over the years and this edition is no different.

The NSFW account that originally shared the video has since changed their Twitter bio to read: "Follow for the Same Porn @TedCruz Watches". At the time then-Candidate Trump tweeted: "How can Ted Cruz be an Evangelical Christian when he lies so much and is so dishonest?"

However, with 3 million followers and a verified blue checkmark, the news took Twitter by storm with Twitterati ripping apart Cruz.

The footage of two women and a man engaged in sexual activity showed under Mr Cruz's "likes" briefly early Tuesday morning.

Cruz's talents would send him in other directions.

He also joked about it a bit: "Perhaps we should have done something like this during the IN primary", the former GOP presidential candidate added, as The Daily Beast noted.

Mr Cruz has however previously admitted to viewing porn.

Twitter prohibits pornography on its platform. But if we have one piece of advice for Cruz's staff, it's this: Don't pretend like Cruz got hacked.

Someone using Cruz's official Twitter account liked a two-minute long pornographic video, and it was featured on his account early Tuesday morning, the New York Post reported.
