Time noted on Thursday that the satirical news website The Onion predicted last year when Cruz announced his candidacy that the hard-line Texas senator would at some point appear on the magazine's cover.
 
“The customarily precise reporting in this article once again proved why The Onion is the most accurate, most trusted, and most infallible publication humankind has ever known,” it said in a statement to Time.
 
“We are committed to providing our 12 billion readers in over 500 countries with disturbingly comprehensive news coverage and upholding the very highest standards of journalistic excellence that all other lesser publications—such as your own—have long since abandoned. We look forward in the weeks and months ahead to subsuming your publication’s market share and draining whatever relevance it may still possess."
