Texas Sen. Ted Cruz had some April Fool’s fun with “Fox and Friends” on Tuesday when he handled a question from host Steve Doocey about posters showing a tattooed Cruz that have been appearing recently around the Los Angeles area.
“I gotta tell you it inspired me,” Cruz said.
Cruz rolled up his sleeve to reveal a tattoo of Winston Churchill chomping on a cigar.
“I’m very proud to say — I’m proud to stand with Winston Churchill,” Cruz said. “I gotta tell you, my wife was surprised.
Since Fox had a screen graphic prepared announcing the tattoo, the prank couldn’t have been a surprise to everyone on the production crew, but it was tough to tell whether Doocey’s co-hosts Elizabeth Hasselbeck and Brian Killmead were in on it from the get-go.
But considering the current occupant of the White House gets a lot more comparisons to Neville Chamberlin in Munich than the Lion of Britain in London, it wasn’t a bad choice at all.
