Ted Cruz’s College Roommate Puts Him on Blast via a Twitter

Ted Cruz has some major damage control to do because his former college roommate may single-handedly ruin his presidential bid via Twitter.

Craig Mazin, a screenwriter in Hollywood, had the displeasure of being Ted Cruz’s roommate while they were both attending Princeton back in the 80s. And if you’ve ever had a roommate, you know you get to see the worst, sometimes the best, but mostly the worst of a person.

Hence Mazin’s tweets, like this one:

Yeah, that’s pretty clear.

Then he also called him lazy:

Huh, we may need this idea for later.

And when someone asked for these two to live together again and film it as a reality show, Mazin said:

So, wait, he was a smelly asshole?!

But Mazin didn’t just tweet about his dear ol’ roommate, in a Scriptnotes podcast, the writer said “And, you know, I want to be clear, because Ted Cruz is a nightmare of a human being. I have plenty of problems with his politics, but truthfully his personality is so awful that 99 percent of why I hate him is just his personality. If he agreed with me on every issue, I would hate him only one percent less.” Boom!

Do You Think Caitlyn Jenner is the Only Trans Celebrity Making Waves? Think Again

Carmen Carrera will become the first transgender woman to marry on television. But she’s far more than just another pretty face on reality TV. She’s an elite trans Latina model using her growing celebrity to educate people about what transgender really is. Brilliant.

Because most people still believe trans people are nothing more than their genitalia.

“I don’t want to talk about it; it’s really personal,” Carrera told Katie Couric when asked if she’s had gender reassignment surgery. “I’d rather talk about my modeling. There’s more to trans people than just [genitalia].” Slaaaay, girl! ?

And nothing more than that freakin’ Y chromosome.

“I asked my Facebook fans why in some states a marriage between a man and a transwoman isn’t considered equal if, by law and atomically, one has transitioned fully to a woman,” Carrera writes in the post. “People need to awaken to the reality that trans woman are women just born with the wrong parts.”

But if you didn’t catch that the first time, she’ll gladly explain it to you in Spanish. *Finger snap*

But to be real, she probably DGAF what you think about her decisions while flying around the world for her modeling photoshoots.

*grabs popcorn and refills tea*

With her celebrity, she is cutting through trans stereotypes, like dating. Trans women are NOT gay.

“If you think that I’m attracted to gay men or they’re attracted to me, or if you think that if I’m in a relationship with a man, then he’s gay,” Carrera told Refinery29. “That means you see me as a man, not as a woman.”

She gives young people hope that it does get better.

“In 2013, renowned fashion photographer Steven Meisel’s people got in touch with me. I was shocked and flattered as we discussed his idea of an old-style Hollywood shoot for W magazine,” Carrera told Glamour Magazine UK. “I mean, this is a man who shoots the most beautiful women. And now he wanted me.”

Even her coming out as Carmen was done in a very public way via ABC’s What Would You Do? series.

She played a waitress coming out to a regular customer who hasn’t seen her since she was Chris.

And she continues to stay visible to no matter what she is doing.

That’s right. She played a woman working at the Marbella with Jane Villanueva proving trans people are no different.

She’s more than just an Elite model. She’s a role model.

That hashtag tho. Tear-jerking.

Oh! And she is about to become the first trans person to get married on reality TV on VH1’s Couples Therapy with Dr. Jenn.
