There is no truth to the rumor that Ted Cruz will endorse Trump on the condition he commits to criminalizing masturbation
CLAIM: Ted Cruz said that he would endorse Donald Trump if the latter promised to make masturbation illegal.
ORIGIN:On 14 July 2016, social media users shared links reporting that Ted Cruz said he would endorse Donald Trump for president if the latter promised to make masturbation illegal:
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) sent shockwaves through the Republican Party today when he announced that he would endorse Donald Trump for President, but only if the GOP nominee would be willing to publicly support a ban on masturbation. The Senator called this ‘The single most important issue facing the country today’ and that without ‘swift action by the next President the country was doomed to slide down a slippery slope of debauchery and self-satisfaction’.
