Twitter Trolls for Ted Cruz’s Naughty Limerick, directed for Biden

Twitter users have trolled Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz after referring to a dirty Limerick poem about the upcoming travels of Democratic President Joe Biden.

“There was once a man from Nantucket …” Cruz wrote in a tweet published Tuesday morning. The tweet was attached to an article mentioning that Biden plans to spend his Thanksgiving vacation in Nantucket, an island on the southeast coast of Massachusetts.

Cruz’s tweet is an opening to one of several well-known limericks, most of which are sexual in nature. While Cruz didn’t continue to recite the poem he was thinking, Twitter users trolled Cruz with their own limericks.

One Twitter user using the display name @JoJoFromJerz wrote:

There was once a little ‘man’ named Ted.
Who fled to Mexico in a crisis.
He said with a smile
Because he’s a terrible jerk
“Don’t blame me, but my daughters.”

His limerick referred to the criticism Cruz faced in February on a trip to Cancun, Mexico, while his home state suffered mass blackouts and blackouts in the midst of winter storms. Millions of Texas had been left without electricity or heat, and a few died in the midst of storms.

Cruz said he went to Cancun to follow his daughter on an improvised vacation.

Another Twitter poet, pictured as @ kgriffin33, wrote his own version of @JoJoFromJerz’s poem, but added two additional verses that pointed to other highlights and weaknesses in Cruz’s career:

“The dog was left behind
Put Ted in a bandage
He told lies one after another
From green eggs and ham
Limits chaos
He became more and more courageous “

“Long days were spent tweeting
Instead of meetings
There has been no talk of masks and vaccines
Said I’d rather be a jerk than ever at work.
Then he took up the fight with the Big Bird. “

The poem refers to a public shock expressed at the false belief that Cruz had abandoned his family’s pet poodle to freeze him and his family alone while he was in Cancun.

The poem also refers to Cruz in 2013 reading the book “Green Eggs and Ham” by children’s author Dr. Seuss while giving a long speech against the Affordable Care Act in the Senate.

Limerick also notes Cruz’s prolific tweeting. Cruz is the Senate’s third most productive Twitter user among Republicans, according to an analysis by Hamilton Place Strategies, a DC-based public affairs consulting firm, in April 2021 of the use of Twitter by each member of the Federal Congress. In the first three months of 2021, Cruz tweeted 800 times.

The poem mentions Cruz’s repeated mention of the migration crisis at the U.S. southern border, as well as mask and vaccine authorizations. Cruz and other Republicans often cite them as evidence of the failure of the Biden regime.

Finally, it mentions that Cruz recently criticized Big Bird, an anthropomorphized bird in an educational television program for children. Sesame Street recently appeared in a public announcement urging children to receive vaccinations against the COVID-19 virus.

A third poem by Twitter user @BettyBowers, a comedy character who often mocks right-wing politicians and Christians, also mentions Cruz’s trip to Cancun:

“Once upon a time there was a dork cult that calmed down,
And stream MILF porn, pleasing herself.
Ted promised them a moon,
But flew to Cancun,
Leave voters frozen. “

The mention of pornography refers to the September 2017 case where Cruz’s Twitter account was found to have liked an adult video.

The clip, which was 2 minutes and 20 seconds, showed the woman walking into the house that appears to be her house. There he found the couple having sex. He continued to look at them, apparently pleased to see them.

Cruz’s account removed the “like” as soon as other Twitter users started noticing it. However, many began to mock him for it. Cruz later said someone else who has access to his Twitter account had “liked” the video.

Newsweek contacted Cruz’s office to comment.
