Five years into Obama’s presidency and we still don’t know a damn thing about what he did in college. But Ted Cruz? Now we know he supposedly smelled and liked to hit his snooze button. Yes, really.
Proud, pretentious American destroyer Ted Cruz has always been a bit difficult. Since elbowing his way into the national consciousness, the Texas Republican has been outed as a hater of “minor Ivies” like Penn and Brown, and is said to have come to Princeton as a 17-year-old with a book titled Was Karl Marx a Satanist? “I would end up fielding the [girls’] complaints: ‘Could you please keep your roommate out of our hallway?'” his undergrad roommate at Princeton Craig Mazin told the Daily Beast over the summer. (“I would rather have anybody else be the president of the United States. Anyone,” Mazin added. “I would rather pick somebody from the phone book.”)
Today, Mazin — who just so happens to be the screenwriter behind Scary Movie 3, Scary Movie 4, and The Hangover III — took to Twitter to share more stories about his fateful time in a crappy room with Cruz. It’s about what you’d expect, but funnier.
So a guy who admits to being the screenwriter behind such blockbusters as Scary Movie 3, Scary Movie 4, and The Hangover III didn’t like Ted Cruz, and this is news?
This is beyond pathetic.
When Ted Cruz was my roommate, he'd endlessly hit the snooze button. I asked him to stop. He wouldn't. So I Krazy-glued it. #learnfromthis

We’re sure Cruz thought he was a great roommate. Funny how nobody asks him about this loser Mazin.
