On Tuesday, April 6, journalist Ken Klippenstein tweeted about how NASA was seeking volunteers "to help staff facilities for unaccompanied migrant children."

Shortly thereafter, Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas quote tweeted Klippenstein, writing "seems bad."

Klippenstein, no fan of Ted Cruz, quickly changed his Twitter screen name to "Ted Cruz liked a porn tweet" so all of Cruz's followers would be reminded of the embarrassing incident from 2017.

Klippenstein shared his handiwork.

Though Cruz deleted his tweet once he realized what had happened, screenshots of Klippenstein's prank will live on forever.



Twitter users everywhere laughed at Cruz for what felt like the hundredth time this month.



There's no shortage of cringe-worthy moments for followers of Ted Cruz.



Many online hoped more politicians would get trolled the same way Cruz was.



Perhaps this entire incident taught Cruz to be more careful about who he retweets.

You never know who might be willing to throw some shade your way.
