In a new in­ter­view with the Des Moines Re­gister, we learn a few things about Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas: He hates avo­ca­dos with a pas­sion, he wants to be a point guard for the Hou­s­ton Rock­ets, and his fa­vor­ite movie is The Prin­cess Bride.

While it’s hard to un­der­stand why someone could hate avo­ca­dos so much, the lat­ter an­swer left the door wide open for the most ob­vi­ous joke people could make about his fa­vor­ite movie: That his choice was in­con­ceiv­able — the word of­ten re­peated by the 1987 clas­sic’s minor vil­lain, Vizzini.

Leave it to Twit­ter to re­peat the same joke.

LGBT Amendment Sinks Energy and Water Approps

THE LATEST

The House voted down the otherwise uncontroversial Energy and Water appropriations bill Thursday after Democrats succeeded in attaching an amendment affirming LGBT job discrimination protections for military contractors. More than 40 Republicans supported the amendment, but when it came to vote on the bill, 130 Republicans joined all but six Democrats to sink the bill. Speaker Paul Ryan said Democrats voting against the bill after securing the amendment shows their intention was to scuttle the process. Democrats, however, blamed other so-called poison-pill amendments for their votes against the bill. Nonetheless, Ryan said he intends to continue the appropriations process.

"It's about time for unity," said UAW President Dennis Williams. "We're endorsing Hillary Clinton. She's gotten 3 million more votes than Bernie, a million more votes than Donald Trump. She's our nominee." He called Sanders "a great friend of the UAW" while saying Trump "does not support the economic security of UAW families." Some 28 percent of UAW members indicated their support for Trump in an internal survey.

"Donald Trump on Thursday reached the number of delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination for president, completing an unlikely rise that has upended the political landscape and sets the stage for a bitter fall campaign. Trump was put over the top in the Associated Press delegate count by a small number of the party's unbound delegates who told the AP they would support him at the convention."
