‘If I Can’t Watch Incest Porn on 9/11, the Terrorists Have Won,’ Cruz Says

Defending his decision to ‘like’ a pornographic post on Twitter Monday, US senator Ted Cruz insisted his action was proof that he would not let terrorism stop him from living his life.

“Our nation’s founders risked their lives for our right to live in freedom, to establish our own government, and to stream video of a good-looking young man having a threesome with his girlfriend and her attractive middle-aged stepmom on our lunch break,” Cruz told The Mideast Beast. “If we are ashamed of doing this, especially on 9/11, then bin Laden has already won.”

In a statement marking the 16th anniversary of the attacks, al Qaeda called Cruz’s action “a bit weird.”

“Listen, Ted, we have no problem with watching porn. We live in caves with a bunch of men and camels, so it’s pretty much all we have to live for,” al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri said. “But man, you aren’t supposed to share it on social media.”

Cruz, however, was not backing down. For those who thought his pornographic 9/11 post was inappropriate, he said, “just wait until you see what I Tweet on Pearl Harbor Day.”
