Both Democrats and Republicans have said that they dislike presidential candidate Ted Cruz in a very personal way (see this Samantha Bee bit for more background on that). One reason may be this tic that Gawker discovered, namely that after every sentence Cruz says, his face contorts in a small little smirk. It's like he's always proud of himself for swallowing that booger.

 Thankfully, his great policies make up for all of this!
