Cruz jokes about shirtless, tattooed poster
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) wants to make one thing clear: He doesn’t smoke cigarettes.
Posters appeared Friday around Hollywood, Calif., with Cruz’s head photoshopped on top of a bare-chested, tattooed man, the day before the senator’s trip to the area, according to Brietbart News.
The posters also show a cigarette hanging out of Cruz’s mouth. On Saturday, the Republican lawmaker joked about the image.

The posters read: “Beverly Hilton, Ted Cruz’s So-Cal ‘Blacklisted & Loving It’ tour.” It gives the date, March 15.
Cruz is set to speak at the Claremont Institute Churchill Dinner in Beverly Hills on Saturday before making a trip to Iowa next week.
