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.

@JesseF­Fer­guson You keep us­ing that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

THE DETAILS

"American spies collected information last summer revealing that senior Russian intelligence and political officials were discussing how to exert influence over Donald J. Trump through his advisers." The conversations centered around Paul Manafort, who was campaign chairman at the time, and Michael Flynn, former national security adviser and then a close campaign surrogate. Both men have been tied heavily with Russia and Flynn is currently at the center of the FBI investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Ethics Cops Clear Mueller to Work on Trump Case

"Former FBI Director Robert Mueller has been cleared by U.S. Department of Justice ethics experts to oversee an investigation into possible collusion between then-candidate Donald Trump's 2016 election campaign and Russia." Some had speculated that the White House would use "an ethics rule limiting government attorneys from investigating people their former law firm represented" to trip up Mueller's appointment. Jared Kushner is a client of Mueller's firm, WilmerHale. "Although Mueller has now been cleared by the Justice Department, the White House may still use his former law firm's connection to Manafort and Kushner to undermine the findings of his investigation, according to two sources close to the White House."
