“Hangover II” and “III” writer Craig Mazin is catching hell for speaking out against his college roommate Ted Cruz on Twitter, but had a quick comeback.
The National Review published a piece about Mazin on Thursday and promoted it with a tweet reading, “Why is @tedcruz’s freshman college roommate @clmazin so obsessed with him?”
Mazin responded: “I’m very interested in him because he’s running for President of the United States. What’s your excuse?”
Mazin also tweeted back at someone who said he is just bitter because Cruz will become president and there’s nothing Mazin can do about it. “There’s nothing *I* specifically can do about it. Sure,” he said. “The electoral map, however, can deliver a vicious beatdown.”
Mazin earned the ire of conservatives recently when he began tweeting jokes about Cruz in his ongoing bid for the White House.
Mazin hit up social media on Tuesday to beat up on Cruz for apparently flip-flopping on the prospect of a contested convention for the GOP. “Classic Ted Cruz,” Mazin wrote. “‘A contested convention would be a disaster.’ Until it’s good for HIM. Now it’s ‘very simple.'”
Asked about Cruz advocating for a ban on sex toys when he was Texas conservator general, Mazin offered this chestnut: “Ted Cruz did not have a dildo stashed under his pillow. Ted Cruz slept on top of his pillow.”
Mazin went on to suggest that Cruz was a bit of a jackoff in his college years. “Ted Cruz thinks people don’t have a right to ‘stimulate their genitals,'” Mazin wrote. “I was his college roommate. This would be a new belief of his.”
