In an earlier post, I wondered why it was that people seemed to take an instinctive and visceral dislike to Ted Cruz and various theories were proposed. But now there is another possible explanation.
Two people think that Cruz is possessed by the devil and armed with mirrors and a cross, they tried to perform an exorcism on him during a campaign event.
“He’s possessed by a demon! The demon has to leave. That’s why the body is so disgusting to look at!” the man said. Why the mirror? So “the evil can confront itself. Evil body! Evil spirit. Look yourself in the mirror!” he shouted.
Reporters followed them to the door, pressing for their names, which they declined to give. As performance artists they stayed in character – the character being that of agitated, nauseated exorcist.
“We just had to get rid of the evil spirit. I hope it works,” the man said, acting as though a belch or barf were building. “He’s very hard to be in the same room with. We had to exorcise some sort of disgusting evil spirit. There’s a reason that the body is so haggard and disgusting, and the face, and it’s all so weathered and gross and hard to look at.
“And it’s because he’s possessed by a demon. Being in the room with evil so close, it’s just hard to even comprehend. The evil is so deep rooted and maybe if it had to confront itself ,” he said — at which point he doubled over and began to retch.
This campaign is getting weirder and weirder.
