Ted Cruz's college roommate Craig Mazin is at it again on Twitter, delighting Cruz-loathers everywhere with jokes and stories about his time living with Cruz at Princeton in 1988. Mazin, who's had almost 30 years to cultivate and refine his contempt for Cruz, joked on Twitter Thursday night that he's being blamed for not having the foresight to kill the presidential hopeful back then.
Getting emails blaming me for not smothering Ted Cruz in his sleep in 1988. What kind of monster do you think I am? A really prescient one?— Craig Mazin (@clmazin) January 15, 2016
I'm starting to feel like the U.S. should pay me reparations for my freshman year. The Brutalism of Ted Cruz - https://t.co/rUuCuAnPdH— Craig Mazin (@clmazin) January 12, 2016
As a freshman, I would get into senior parties because I was Ted's roommate. OUT OF PITY. He was that widely loathed. It's his superpower.— Craig Mazin (@clmazin) January 10, 2016
Mazin, now a successful screenwriter responsible for, among other films, both Hangover sequels, has been tweeting about Cruz for years, and it seems that, unsurprisingly, Cruz was no more likable back then than he is now.
