Anyone with half a brain in their heads knows Ted Cruz was joking in his tweet saying that he wished The Babylon Bee’s ridiculous headline was a parody because he knows it’s satire but it’s all too close to reality these days as everything is really dumb.
Key portion of that first sentence, people with half a brain.
We’re not really dealing with our best or brightest on the Left so it’s no wonder they were confused about Ted’s tweet:
I wish this was parody. https://t.co/zYw82CuF5y

MOST of us get it.
But not all of us.
The quantity of supposedly smart blue checkmark pundit/reporter-activist types on Twitter who didn't get your point here is … terrifying.

So should trolls on Twitter.
And speaking of trolls.
This coming from a human satire personified.

What’s really scary is these folks think they’re the smart ones.
You have got to be kidding me. But you’re not.

HURR DURR TRUUUUUUMP.

Oh, and in case there’s still some yahoo out there claiming Ted doesn’t know The Babylon Bee is satire:
When I read this headline, I thought it was @TheBabylonBee
Sadly, no. It’s real. Just another manifestation of the blinding hatred on the Left, heaping contempt on half the country.
We can do better. https://t.co/4CdGGNE9X3

Ted freaks the Left out ALMOST as much as Trump.
