If you thought the BuzzFeed video of President Obama taking selfies was bad for the office, take a look at what they came up with for Ted Cruz — “Simpsons” impressions and .gifs:
And here’s the video of Cruz imitating Flanders and Mr. Burns, among others:
And this pretty much sums it up:
Cruz sat down with BuzzFeed’s McCay Coppins to explain how much he gets social media and “going viral”:
Those instincts were on vivid display Monday, when Cruz visited BuzzFeed’s New York headquarters as part of a promotional tour for his new book, A Time for Truth. The besuited candidate — perhaps best known for leading the conservative crusade to defund Obamacare in 2013 that culminated in a government shutdown — strolled breezily around the office. At one point, while posing for a photo, he spotted a life-sized cardboard cutout of the Dos Equis “Most Interesting Man in the World” and pulled it into the shot with him, declaring, “We Latins need to stick together!” While recording a short video with some of BuzzFeed’s producers he was notably hands-on, tweaking the script on the fly to make the jokes his own, and tossing out self-deprecating ad-libs. And when he sat down for a wide-ranging news interview that covered many of the day’s most charged political debates, the senator reserved his most palpable excitement for recounting successful memes he had launched and hashtag wars he had won.
How exactly does Ted Cruz think conservatives will react to this?
