Ted Cruz is one of the shittier Republican candidates and he was at a state fair in a flyover state this weekend. While Ted was busy showing off his grilling skills, Ellen Page the actress showed up to “discuss” Ted's political stances. They proceeded to have a debate at a state fair, so I guess they can both cross that off of the saddest bucket lists ever. But IRL not an SNL skit, a presidential candidate debated Juno in public.
But instead of talking about how Ted would screen adopting couples for asshole husbands or buying Michael Cera condoms, shit got very serious about LGBT rights. Here are the best moments from their three-way calling attack:
Ellen: What about the question about LGBT people being fired for being gay-trans?
Ted: Well, what we're seeing right now, we're seeing Bible-believing Christians being persecuted for living according to their faith.
Ted: ISIS is executing gay people. Iran is executing homosexuals.
Ellen: Yeah, that's a whole other thing.
Ted: Imagine, hypothetically, you had a gay florist, and imagine two evangelical Christians wanted to get married, and the gay florist decided, 'You know what, I disagree with your faith, I don't want to provide flowers.'
Ellen: I would say they should provide the flowers.
