A young and robust Ted Cruz has one thing on his mind: world domination. Well that and the makings of a lumbering five-minute standup set. If you’re in the mood to laugh, don’t watch this! But if you’ve been thinking, “I haven’t felt uncomfortable in a while, I could really use some secondhand embarrassment” then this video of 18-year-old Ted Cruz is a must-watch!

Some choice quotes:

“My aspirations? Is that like sweat on my butt?”

— Ted Cruz, GOP frontfrunner

“What do I want to do in life? Well, my aspiration is to be in a teen tit film like that guy who played Horatio. You know, he was in Malibu Bikini Beach Shop?”

— Ted Cruz, family values candidate

“Other than that, uh, take over the world. World domination. You know, rule everything. Rich, powerful. That sort of stuff.”

— Ted Cruz, someone who might be President Of The United States

While a lot of news outlets are saying that his video reveals Cruz’s true intentions, we don’t think it does that. It just shows a dumb 18 year old kid trying very hard to be funny. Does this video prove that Cruz has always been irritating? Yes. Does it prove he is a diabolical evil genius who has been plotting world domination from a young age? No.
