Of course, that's assuming that's actually what happened.

Family values conservative Ted Cruz found himself in a bit of an odd predicament within the last 24 hours.

Cruz did not say which of his staffers "liked" the tweet, and said it was "still being discussed" as to what disciplinary action will be taken.

Citing a "staffing issue" - we can not make this up, fam - Cruz said that his team is "dealing with it internally, but it was a mistake".

"We're dealing with it internally, but it was a mistake, it was not malicious conduct", he added, joking the Twitter mistake could have aided his presidential bid back in 2016.

And Cruz blamed it on a "staffing issue" - feel free to do with that what you will. He argued that Americans don't have the constitutional right to masturbate, and that the government has the right to discourage such acts. That said, Cruz didn't speculate whether the purposes here were medical, or, if not, whether they were protected by due process.

Cruz is so against self-pleasure that he once even supported a ban on sex toys.

At the very least, then, someone Cruz trusts with his official communications channels was watching hardcore Twitter porn.

Another said, "Don't let the Ted Cruz porn story distract you from the fact that he is somehow younger than Jennifer Lopez".

"You guys have all painted me as this big porn star, which I am not", she told The Post at the time.

This was years ago, when Cruz was a clerk on the high court for the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist.

"As we watched these graphic pictures fill our screens, wide-eyed, no one said a word", Cruz wrote in an excerpt published by Politico Magazine in 2015.

He finds the ideal video for his enjoyment: A buxom young lady comes home and finds her nude stepdaughter having sexual intercourse with a young man, and naturally secretly watches the action while masturbating.

After realizing that the unauthorized "like" had been made, it was undone and the post was reported.
