Speaking of Ted Cruz, here’s the Daily Beast trying to humanize Ted Cruz:
The senator is known as a Tea Party firebrand. What he’s not known as is a hidden geek who can’t get enough of ‘Candy Crush.’ He tells The Daily Beast why he can’t have a console.
Long before Ted Cruz became a senator from Texas, he was a gamer. He’s known for being pugilistic on the Senate floor, but sometimes he’d rather be fighting cartoon zombies on his iPhone.
It’s an uncommon lens through which to view Cruz, a controversial conservative figure who is now running for the highest political office in the country. Cruz’s video game habit fits into a largely hidden geek persona that lurks just behind his better-known public reputation as an obstinate Tea Party firebrand.
At the moment, Cruz is playing Plants vs. Zombies, a game where users collect sunlight points to feed plants who fight off waves of zombies; Candy Crush, the puzzle game where he claims he’s in the 217th level; and The Creeps!, a tower defense game.
A.) Those aren’t video games.
B.) On top of everything else wrong with him, he’s the asshole spamming you with Candy Crush notifications.
But he likes “video games,” so he’s JUST LIKE US and YOU WANT TO HAVE A BEER WITH HIM. Hell, even Hitler liked his dogs.
Godwin in one.
