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.

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."

UPDATE

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."
