Ted Cruz called it quits on his presidential campaign on May 3, a move which called for a somber speech, Twitter jokes, and lots of sad hugs. Unfortunately, Ted Cruz isn't great at giving hugs. After wrapping up his concession speech, Cruz "accidentally" (quotation marks added because he might be the Zodiac Killer) hit his wife, Heidi, in the face. Again and again.

Poor Heidi. First, she had to listen to her husband give up, and then she was rewarded with an elbow in the face.

Redditors had some on-the-nose reactions to Ted Cruz's failed hug. CaptLongbeard wrote Cruz's apology to his wife.

"Sorry honey, still getting used to this human vessel."

Cruzin for a bruisin
