Ted Cruz’s Favorite Porn Star Cory Chase Is More Patriotic Than He’ll Ever Be
Reality KingsTed Cruz, the Republican senator from Texas, has found himself in the middle of a number of controversies. There was the 2013 government shutdown, wherein Cruz hijacked Congress with a reading of Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham; the time he accused President Obama of high treason for wanting to push immigration reform; the time GOP Senator Lindsey Graham said, “If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody would convict you”; and the time Donald Trump branded Cruz’s wife ugly and accused his father of assassinating JFK, prompting Cruz to cower and kiss his ring anyway. Recently, the culture war-obsessed congressman has come under fire for his complicity in the January 6 storming of the Capitol, and abandoning his state for a Cancun vacation in the midst of an energy crisis that left millions without power and dozens dead.One of the funniest Cruz controversies, of course, came in September of 2017, when his Twitter account “liked” an incestuous porn clip. The adult film in question, Dicks for Two, starred the celebrated porn actress Cory Chase as a stepmother who, after stumbling upon her stepdaughter and her boyfriend getting down and dirty, joins in on the X-rated fun. The incident took many by surprise, given that his Republican Party had only a few months prior adopted a platform branding porn “a public health crisis that is destroying the life [sic] of millions,” and the time Cruz, as Texas’ solicitor general, passionately defended his state’s ban on sex toys, claiming, “There is no substantive-due-process right to stimulate one's genitals for non-medical purposes unrelated to procreation or outside of an interpersonal relationship.” (Cruz rather dubiously placed the blame for “liking” the porn clip on an unnamed staffer.)According to Cory Chase, Dicks for Two is a “family roleplay” flick—or “fauxcest,” as the popular porn genre is frequently called. “I was a very new stepmom to my stepdaughter. I think she pretended to stay home sick, had her boyfriend come over, they had fun, and then of course, I caught them,” she tells me, chuckling. “It was me being a Peeping Tom, and then me finding out, ‘Man, my stepdaughter is really hot, and her boyfriend has a really big dick, maybe I should join in.’”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
