But here's the rub. "And when we discovered the post, which I was I guess an hour or two later, we pulled it down", Cruz said.

Earlier this week, one of Cruz's Twitter accounts liked a post by @SexuallPosts, which featured a pornographic video.

It's unclear if Cruz liked the video himself, or if it was the late-night work of an aid that manages his social media presence.

With over 380,000 tweets on the subject by Tuesday morning, the politician's name was the top United States trend on Twitter, mostly filled with mockery.

Catherine Frazier, the senator's senior communications advisor, tweeted earlier that the offending material had been removed from his account and reported to Twitter. The video in question comes from the account "Sexuall Posts".

Others mocked Cruz over the timing of the alleged "like".

Apple TV 4K Is a 4K Apple TV, Finally
I think the Apple TV 4K will still be the best of the lot, but it's not worth almost double the asking price of the others. With Apple investing up to $1 billion in original content , though, it was high time for some fresh hardware.

There were also plenty of jokes about Ted Cruz being the Zodiac Killer, an old absurdist joke that originated on Twitter and became popular during the lead up to the 2016 Presidential election.

Many, like Cruz, have two separate Twitter accounts, one for their elected office and one for their campaign, in order to comply with ethics laws forbidding campaign activity on the taxpayer dime.

"In divisive times like these it gives me great comfort that all American can join together to make fun of Ted Cruz", commented sportswriter Molly Knight.

Cruz's outspokenly anti-Cruz college roommate, the screenwriter and director Craig Mazin, clearly has his own ideas of Cruz's opinions about his stance on stimulating one's genitals for non-medical purposes.

And Cruz blamed it on a "staffing issue" - feel free to do with that what you will.
