Trevor Noah Defends Ted Cruz For Twitter Fiasco: He Didn’t Do it, Only Humans Watch Porn!

Trevor Noah kicked off his show Tuesday night by addressing Sen. Ted Cruz‘s midnight Twitter fiasco.

Late last night, Cruz’s personal Twitter account was shown “liking” a two-minute porn clip from the “Sexuall Posts” Twitter page.

“Of course Ted Cruz would search for porn by typing ‘sexual posts,'” Noah joked. “That is like the most generic, lame way to search for pornography.”

The Daily Show host then began defending the Republican senator from Texas.

“Here’s the thing though, everyone is freaking out about this and calling it a possible scandal all because a politician may have watched porn,” Noah continued.  “Come on, people. It’s no big deal. Everyone watches porn, alright? It’s part of being a normal human being… which is exactly why we know Ted Cruz didn’t do it!”

He then accused Cruz of “trying to blend in with the rest of the human species” by “pretending to like porn” as well as using this for his own political gain.

“Nice try, Ted!” Noah shouted. “I know what this is — trying to seem relatable as your first move into the 2020 presidential run. We’re not buying it, Ted Cruz! You don’t watch porn, we know you got hacked!”
