Cruz inadvertently took the internet by storm during Thursday night’s Fox News GOP debate, when he appeared to eat a small object off of his lip.
The Texas senator was talking about Donald Trump supporters about 25 minutes into the 8 p.m. debate, when the mysterious white object first appeared on his top lip. In the high-drama television that ensued, it was passed back and forth between his upper and lower lip for the next few moments.
Just after mentioning Trump supporters being “angry at Washington” and his rival candidate’s “angry rhetoric,” Cruz closed his lips around the crumb.
A well-timed rhetorical pause followed as the particle embarked on the digestive journey.
