Ted Cruz Congratulates Alex Bregman For ‘Very Cool’ Jewish World Series Success

Ted Cruz: he’s just like us! Obsessed with the Jews.

Cruz tweeted a congratulation to the Chosen People today on the occasion of our representative Alex Bregman’s major success in the recent climactic World Series game. Despite the immediate, visceral reaction by his followers to the mention of the Jewish religion, Cruz bravely tweeted his excitement, along with the hashtag “earn history.” (Jews may feel that no one quite deserves our history, but who are we to quibble with our greatest fan Ted Cruz?!)

Here is our wish list for Jewish culture articles we’d like to see Ted Cruz cover:

-“18 Things That Will DEFINITELY Happen To You On Taglit”

-“Check Out These Pics Of Natalie Portman Eating Tzimmes!”

-“The Dissolution of Jonathan Safran Foer and Nicole Krauss’ Marriage, and All Subsequent Literature That Seems to Reflect On It: A Personal Essay”

-“All 97 Songs From ‘Crazy Ex Girlfriend’ Ranked”
