The View Ted Cruz Porn Tweet

(ABC)

On Tuesday’s “The View,” the co-hosts mocked Ted Cruz for liking a pornographic tweet on Twitter. The segment was hilariously naughty. Watch the video below!

As Gossip Cop reported, a “like” of a hardcore porn video appeared on Cruz’s personal Twitter feed early Tuesday. His camp has since suggested he was hacked (while Cruz himself later blamed a staffer), but many aren’t buying that explanation. Now on the ABC talk show, Whoopi Goldberg kicked the episode off by noting, “A lot of folks are wondering what’s up with Ted Cruz.” She went on, “We don’t know really what happened. But do you think his constituents are like, “What the hell?!'”

Sara Haines was extremely skeptical of the hacked explanation, pointing out that hackers usually post content upon getting control of an account, as opposed to simply “liking” a single tweet. “I think what happened is he hit a button and then regretted it,” she argued. Joy Behar then cracked, “Just the words ‘Cruz’ and ‘porn’ can spin me into celibacy… Just the thought that he’s there liking [that].” Jedediah Bila was the only one to actually answer Goldberg’s question, saying that she does think Cruz’s followers were likely upset over the gaffe.

“You did see his supporters who were saying, ‘I come to the page for wholesome content.’ They were spooked,” she said, pointing out that “the reason this is important” is because “Ted Cruz is someone who rallies against buying sex toys. He’s supposed to be this purist.” Confirming that, Behar read aloud a 2007 quote from the senator in which he said there’s “no substantive due process right to stimulate one’s genitals outside of medical purposes.” That prompted Haines to pointedly note, “[But] when you’re pent up, it eventually explodes.”

That led to a lot of knowing laughs, as did the tweet Bila read aloud from Cruz’s colleage roommate. The laughter continued when Behar switched gears slightly to highlight the design on Hostin’s outfit, saying, “While we’re on the subject, can we keep Donald Trump away from this dress?” Not everyone understood the quip at first, at least until Hostin exclaimed, “They’re pussy cats!” Behar then joked, “It’s designed by Gucci and Grabbana.” Check out the funny video below!
