BAD A$$! Ted Cruz Just Took His Campaign to the Next Level… With THIS!


Republican presidential candidate, Ted Cruz, just took part in a viral video effort, titled Making Machine-Gun Bacon with Ted Cruz.

The Cruz video is the latest installment in a series of funny videos involving Republican candidates, courtesy of IJReview. The first two showed Lindsay Graham using various methods to destroy his cell phone after Donald Trump gave out his number, and Dr. Ben Carson giving advice on how to beat the game Operation.

In the latest segment, Cruz mimics an already viral internet video of a man cooking bacon by wrapping it around the barrel of a machine gun.

Via NPR:

“There are few things I enjoy more than on weekends cooking breakfast with the family,” Cruz opens the video. Raw bacon and aluminum foil are then wrapped around the barrel of a machine gun at a firing range.

“Of course in Texas, we cook bacon a little differently than most folks,” Cruz says.

He fires a number of shots at a target, noting grease dripping on the ground, followed by the big reveal: Cruz unwraps the foil and eats a forkful of bacon, laughing “Mmm, machine-gun bacon.”

Machine gun bacon. Because, why not?

Comment: What do you think of the Ted Cruz video? Good to see a funny, personable side to the candidate, or is this something beneath a presidential candidate?

    I don’t need a Saturday Night Wanna-be running the country. I had a higher opinion of him before the video.
