In the video, Presidential candidate Ted Cruz (R-Texas) wraps bacon around the barrel of an M16, then covers it with foil — you don’t wanna make a mess, after all.
He fires several rounds, then notices grease dripping from the gun. Guess that foil didn’t work so well.
But soon enough, Cruz picks the bacon off with a fork and takes a bite.
“Mmm. Machine gun bacon,” Cruz says, laughing.
Hey, Cruz has a reputation for fighting pork in the federal budget.
“Do you like green eggs and ham?” he read during a 2013 filibuster.
Let’s see if his next performance, in Thursday’s debate, helps him move up the Republican roster.
