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.

After spending a few minutes re-litigating the Democratic primary, Donald Trump turned his focus to Obamacare. “I inherited a mess, believe me. We also inherited a failed healthcare law that threatens our medical system with absolute and total catastrophe” he said. “I’ve been watching and nobody says it, but Obamacare doesn’t work.” He finished, "so we're going to repeal and replace Obamacare."
Donald Trump lobbed his first attack at the “dishonest media” about a minute into his speech, saying that the media would not appropriately cover the standing ovation that he received. “We are fighting the fake news,” he said, before doubling down on his previous claim that the press is “the enemy of the people." However, he made a distinction, saying that he doesn't think all media is the enemy, just the "fake news."
"The FBI rejected a recent White House request to publicly knock down media reports about communications between Donald Trump's associates and Russians known to US intelligence during the 2016 presidential campaign, multiple US officials briefed on the matter tell CNN. But a White House official said late Thursday that the request was only made after the FBI indicated to the White House it did not believe the reporting to be accurate."
