United States Senator Ted Cruz is a practiced politician. That's why it was such a shock when he couldn't answer a rather simple question in a recent Senate debate with Beto O'rourke. Twitter reacted to his hesitation to “Tell us something you’ve done in the last year that has nothing to do with politics that would give Texans insight to who you are as a person," in the most Twitter of Twitter ways.
