A naked Ted Cruz was once allegedly locked out of his Princeton dormitory.


Jezebel’s Ellie Shechet has a fantastic story about Cruz’s college classmates and how they felt about him. There are a lot of gems, quotes like: “I was stunned that he would be the one that ended up [running for] president out of our class because he’s about as telegenic as an undertaker.” And also: “There are not that many people in my life who I can think of who I didn’t actually have extensive interactions with who bring up such bad feelings.” But the undisputed highlight is this anecdote: 

In naked but non-sexual news, multiple classmates who asked for anonymity recounted Cruz participating in the “Nude Olympics,” a (now defunct) Princeton tradition in which members of the sophomore class got drunk and ran around campus sans clothing during the first snow of the year. According to several classmates, none of whom were firsthand witnesses, Cruz was said to have run the wrong way and was later seen naked and banging against the window of a locked dorm in an attempt to gain entrance.

We are authoritatively compiling every on-the-record Ted Cruz diss we can find here. We’ll be updating it with quotes from this story shortly.
