SPLAT! Ted Cruz bot farm conspiracy theory goes down in flames

Lamar White, Jr., founder and publisher of @bayoubrief, thinks he uncovered some sort of suspicious bot farm supporting Sen. Ted Cruz after he noticed numerous people tweeting the exact same thing this morning. Check it out:


And Josh McCall, a Dem running the GA-09, responded that the “bot farms are fighting back against @BetoORourke in Texas”:


Who could be behind this they wondered?

Or, and we’re just spitballing here, these are real Cruz supporters who clicked a link?

HAHAHAHAHA! Try it for yourself and join Cruz’s bot army!


Busted! When you do click the link, it *is* the exact same text:

“I choose @tedcruz for #TXSen because unlike @betoorourke, I think refusing to stand for the national anthem is disrespectful to those who have sacrificed so much for America. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 #ChooseCruz #IStand”

Well, that was a rather short conspiracy theory.
