Ted Cruz Vows to Find the Man Who Murdered His Entire Extended Family and Endorse Him for President

TEXAS – Following the tragic murders of Ted Cruz’s entire extended family, the Texas senator vowed to hunt down the person who was responsible and bring them to the White House.

“I swear, with God as my witness,” a visibly distraught Cruz said Friday during a press conference, “to personally find the man responsible for this, and give him my full support.”

Cruz added, “No one is more shaken and saddened by the events of the past week, than I am, but I feel that as a defender of liberty, it is my personal responsibility to find the person who did this, and do everything in my power to make sure that they become president of these United States.”

The gathered members of the press asked an unusually high amount of follow up questions, suggesting they were having a hard time following Cruz’s logic, especially given the fact that Cruz explicitly said earlier on in the week that he would not endorse the eventually convicted murderer for president.

The press also seemed to be having a hard time understanding what endorsing the culprit for president had to do with anything.

Republican nominee Donald Trump weighed in on the tragedy on Twitter, writing, “Lyin’ Ted Cruz endorsing a criminal for president! Probably just needs a friend now that all his family- HIS ONLY FRIENDS- are ALL DEAD!”

He fired again: "WAKE UP PEOPLE! Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer! HE MURDERED HIS OWN FAMILY!"

Cruz responded to Trump’s remarks in a video which aired on The Kelly File:

“I find Donald’s remarks deeply offensive and callously insensitive. I condemn Donald’s comments in the strongest possible terms, and if I can’t find the guy that offed my family, I plan to do everything in my power to make sure Donald is elected president instead.”

The program’s host, Megyn Kelly, suggested that, given the severe trauma Cruz had recently undergone, he might be confused about what it actually means to endorse someone for president.

“Cruz’s comments betray a man shattered by tragedy, and confused,” Kelly said. “I mean you don’t just endorse someone for president who attacks you and your family. That doesn’t make any sense.”

As of press time, Cruz was last seen in a pre-taped segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live, reading mean tweets about himself, looking into the camera, and saying, “I endorse this tweet for president!"


This is satire. Cruz’s family is alive and well. However, Cruz did recently endorse Donald Trump for president. During the primary season, when Cruz was Trump’s stiffest competition, Trump insulted Cruz’s wife Heidi, threatened to “spill the beans” about her, and insinuated that Cruz’s father was involved in the JFK assassination. What a time to be alive.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.
