Ted Cruz doesn’t like Nine Inch Nails but would like to drink all of their beer. So says the US senator in response to onstage comments made by Trent Reznor at a show in Texas last week.

Performing in the state where Cruz was recently re-elected, Reznor polled the audience to find out how many of his fans had voted for the Republican. He added that there were no hard feelings if they had, saying: “He might be here tonight. He was bugging to get on the guest list and I told him to fuck off. We put him on [the guest list] a few years ago. He drank all the beer and was just a pain in the ass to be around”.

Cruz later tweeted in response: “To all the gullible reporters who are ‘reporting’ that I asked to be on the guest list at a Nine Inch Nails concert: uh, no, NIN is not my music taste. He was clearly joking. And for the record, I also didn’t ‘drink all his beer’ the last time… but I would have!”

You read it right there, folks. Ted Cruz is a compulsive beer thief who cannot be stopped.
