Ted Cruz Tried To Explain ‘Star Wars’ To Mark Hamill And Got Burned Worse Than Anakin On Mustafar

In the latest piece of “I can’t believe this is the actual world we live in” news, sitting senator Ted Cruz got into a Twitter fight with Master Jedi Luke Skywalker alias Mark Hamill.

It all began when Cruz stuck his big zodiac killer nose into a tweet Hamill directed at net-neutrality murderer and the Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission Ajit Pai“You are profoundly unworthy 2 wield a lightsaber,” he wrote. “A Jedi acts selflessly for the common man-NOT lie 2 enrich giant corporations. Btw-did you pay John Williams his royalty? @AjitPaiFCCorpShill.” If Pai grew up loving the franchise, the conclusion of Hamill’s tweet must’ve been a little heartbreaking for him, despite the fact he is clearly a sociopath; “#AJediYouAreNOT.”

Ted Cruz then took it upon himself to respond to Hamill’s tweet, proving he doesn’t actually know how the Internet works when he tagged the wrong Twitter account, and proving that he doesn’t know how to be an even remotely likable person when he tried to Cruz-splain Star Wars to Luke Skywalker himself.

“Luke, I know Hollywood can be confusing, but it was Vader who supported govt power over everything said & done on the Internet,” wrote Cruz. “Reject the dark side: Free the net!” It takes either a lot of balls or a lot of stupidity to attempt to explain The Force to— I repeat— LUKE SKYWALKER HIMSELF. Guess which Cruz has a surplus of?

“Thanks for smarm-spaining it to me @tedcruz,” he wrote. “I know politics can be confusing, but you’d have more credibility if you spelled my name correctly. I mean IT’S RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF YOU!” He then brings up that awwwkard time Cruz got caught watching porn in his office. “Maybe you’re just distracted from watching porn at the office again❤️-mh”

Cruz maybe should’ve stopped while he was ahead, but he wouldn’t actually know what being ahead feels like so it’s no surprise he just…didn’t. And Twitter loved every minute.
