Today I learned that Ted Cruz is a huge fan of The Princess Bride. He frequently quotes lines from the movie, and even occasionally has done impressions of characters from it.
However, apparently the actors have turned up Cruz’s torture machine to 50 by holding a reunion. In order to see the livestream of the event you can contribute (any amount) to the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. “Anything you donate will be used to ensure that Trump loses Wisconsin, and thereby the White House,” according to the donation page.
What ensued was a tweet volley between Cruz and Cary Elwes (who played Westley — and the Dread Pirate Roberts — in the movie).
Of course, you don’t have to live in Wisconsin to donate and see the reunion.
