Ted Cruz Has Weird Porn Fantasies About Disney

Senator Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) bizarre obsession with Disney’s decision to reject Florida’s anti-LGBT “Don’t Say Gay” law has reached serial-killer levels of creepiness. In an effort to “own” a corporation that’s the pinnacle of free-market capitalism, Ted Cruz skeeved people out by making a lewd joke about Mickey Mouse and Pluto.

After all, considering the fears of marginalized groups is a human quality and therefore not Ted Cruz’s thing. So he chose instead to talk up the weird porn fantasies he’s having regarding Mickey and Pluto doing it.

“I think there are people who are misguided, trying to drive Disney, stepping in, saying, you know, in every episode now they’re going to have, you know, Mickey and Pluto going at it,” he blurted on his podcast.

“Thank you for that image, senator,” co-host Michael Knowles joked.

“But it’s just like, come on, guys, these are kids and, you know, you could always shift to Cinemax if you want that!” Cruz said. “Look, I’m a dad, it used to be that you could put your kids on the Disney Channel and be like, all right, something innocuous will happen.”


Are we cool with Ted Cruz openly fetishizing children's cartoon characters? According to him, it’s gay people that are harming children. But if you ask us, it looks like Ted Cruz has a lot of toxic daydreams that he should’ve left at his shrink’s office.

How vile is your brain that LGBTQ+ inclusion in animated films automatically equates to a cartoon mouse boning his pet dog? One thing about Cruz we know is that he will somehow find a way to go lower. It won't be easy.

Dr. Mehmet Oz and Sean Hannity

Fox News prime-time host Sean Hannity is priming his audience to see election fraud in any defeat for Dr. Mehmet Oz, his favored candidate who currently leads the GOP primary for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania with two percent of votes outstanding. If the fast-closing hedge funder Dave McCormick takes the lead and the Oz camp claims the election has been stolen, it could set up a potentially explosive proxy war with Hannity’s colleague Laura Ingraham, whose Fox program favors McCormick and has suggested he is likely to prevail when all the votes are counted.

The GOP primary was a chaotic slugfest that split Fox’s slate of pro-GOP hosts in an unusually public way. Hannity was Oz’s most prominent supporter, reportedly securing the support of former President Donald Trump and using his program to endorse the TV personality, give him a regular platform, and target the challenge from right-wing commentator and Fox & Friends regular Kathy Barnette. Ingraham, meanwhile, used her Fox program (which airs in the hour following Hannity’s) to promote McCormick, criticize Oz, and defend Barnette.

Overturning Roe v. Wade is very unpopular, yet another poll confirms. Nearly two out of three people, or 64 percent, told the NPR/PBS Newshour/Marist poll that Roe should not be overturned, including 62 percent of independents. The poll also includes some good news for Democrats.

According to the poll, the prospect of the Supreme Court striking down Roe in the most extreme way is motivating Democratic voters more than Republicans: Sixty-six percent of Democrats say it makes them more likely to vote in November compared with 40 percent of Republicans. That echoes a recent NBC poll finding a larger rise in enthusiasm about voting among Democrats than Republicans.
