Sen. Ted Cruz sat down for a bizarre interview in which he explained at length the reason why his Twitter account accidentally liked a pornographic tweet earlier this week.

Speaking to CNN’s Dana Bash on Wednesday, the Texas senator repeatedly described the incident as a “screwup” on the part of a staffer who “accidentally hit the wrong button.”

“It’s generated a lot of amusement, it’s prompted a lot of jokes, I understand it,” Cruz said, emphasizing that he was “not going to out the fella.”

He added: “We have looked into it, yes, we have identified it, we pulled it down. It was an honest mistake, it wasn’t malicious, it wasn’t deliberate, it was a screwup.”

Cruz emphasized that he was not responsible for the tweet.

“It was not me, and it’s not going to happen again,” he said.

Cruz also explained his advocacy during his tenure as Texas solicitor general for a Texas law that would’ve banned the sale of sex toys, saying it was a “stupid law” that he was obligated to defend as part of his job.

“Consenting adults should be able to do whatever they want in their bedrooms,” Cruz said. “The media and the left seem obsessed with sex.”
