Earlier today, Texas Senator Ted Cruz made some deeply disturbing comments about queso that have shaken the internet to its queso-loving core. At a “cheese dip vs. queso” competition on Capitol Hill, Senators Cruz and John Cornyn participated in a blind taste test competition vs. the cheese dip of Arkansas’ senators Tom Cotton and John Boozman. Because even senators need to let loose sometimes!

Cruz was very, very passionately Team Queso, as he explained in this slightly NSFW video:

The internet has reacted with a mixture of horror and amusement to Cruz simultaneously promoting, and ruining, our beloved queso:

Bad news for the Texas Senator, however. Despite the passion he brought to the table, his team lost.

And yet, it's not the loss that was queso's downfall, but rather, Cruz's love for it. RIP, queso. You have given us so much and will be deeply missed.
