Cruzin' for a Bruisin'

Ted Cruz just had to say something about Apple CEO Tim Cook being gay

Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz just weighs in on everything these days. The man's got opinions and he's just going to opinionate all over us until we give him what he wants (which is most likely the presidency). 

In the midst of his battle to amend the U.S. Constitution to allow states to create anti-gay marriage legislation, Cruz made a bizarre attempt to equate the news that Apple CEO Tim Cook is gay with, you know, how much he loves his iPhone.

"Those are his personal choices. I’ll tell you, I love my iPhone," Cruz said in an interview with CNBC. "Listen, Tim Cook makes his personal decisions — and that is his life. My focus is on the constitutional question of who has the authority to make decisions," said Cruz. 

If you're confused, let us help you out: Cruz loves his iPhone, and thinks states should be able to make their own decisions. Unless of course those decisions are things that Cruz disagrees with, like being gay and getting married. Earlier this month, Cruz released a statement saying, "Traditional marriage is an institution whose integrity and vitality are critical to the health of any society. We should remain faithful to our moral heritage and never hesitate to defend it."

During his interview, Cruz also weighed in on other things including Hillary Clinton's potential presidential run and the upcoming midterm elections.
