Brie Larson is the real MVP!
While presenting the Best Actor award to Casey Affleck at the Oscars Sunday, the actress very pointedly didn't clap for the actor as he took to the stage to accept his award.
And people definitely noticed!
Yep, the guy who spearheaded the Tea Party's efforts that led to 2013's government shutdown is now seeking the highest political office in the land.
And you can tell this is for 2016, because he announced his campaign on Twitter! Along with his first campaign video, he wrote:
For those wondering, the Canadian-born Cruz is technically eligible to run for President because his mother was an American citizen.
But considering all the flack his party gave President Obama over his place of birth (Hawaii, totally a state), it's a pretty inneresting factoid.
Also of note?
About a month ago, Senator Cruz co-introduced a bill to give states the right to not recognize same sex marriages, setting back a lot of progress that has been done at a national level.
Just something to think about.
