Ted Cruz Teasing His Democratic Rival Over Name Change Is The Ultimate Hypocrisy

Ted Cruz's new campaign song features a line that's impossible to ignore. In the song, Cruz makes fun of his 2018 election rival, Rep. Beto O'Rourke, for going by Beto instead of his given name, Robert. There's just one problem: Ted isn't Cruz's real name. His real name is Rafael Edward Cruz, as one CNN anchor pointed out to the senator.

Ted, who goes by a nickname, has no right to criticize someone for doing the same. 

Of course, Cruz's real offense might be the song itself:

Twitter had their own take on Cruz's campaign anthem:

At the end of the day, a name doesn't really matter.

But Cruz's blatant hypocrisy is something people can't stand!

The senator's double standard may leave you with a bad taste in your mouth, but he cleansed our palettes with a pleasant anecdote.

Now everyone's sure to love him.

Or maybe not.

The midterm elections will show Texans' feelings for the incumbent senator and his democratic competition. Perhaps citizens of the Lone Star State would do well to remember this incident when November rolls around.
