“The media and the left seem obsessed with sex; let people do what they want.”
CNN’s Dana Bash interviewed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) Wednesday and proceeded to ask him about his views on sex toys.
“I can’t believe I’m going to ask you this, but so you’re officially saying Ted Cruz is okay with people buying sex toys?” Bash asked Cruz while smiling ear-to-ear.
Bash interviewed Cruz over a pornographic tweet that was accidentally “liked” on Cruz’s official Twitter account late Monday night, which quickly exploded on social media.
“Can you appreciate the irony that you once defended a Texas law banning sales of sex toys?” Bash asked.
Cruz immediately answered “no” before delving into how the media is taking this situation and trying to twist it into something that it’s not.
“One of those laws was a law restricting the sale of sex toys. A stupid law. Listen, I am one of the most libertarian members of the Senate. I think it is idiotic. But, it is an opportunity for knuckleheads in the media to claim, oh, isn’t this ironic that Cruz wants to ban these things,” Cruz said.
