MINNEAPOLIS (The Borowitz Report)—In a potential stumbling block for his Presidential ambitions, a new study indicates that the average American can stand only four seconds of exposure to Senator Ted Cruz, the Texas Republican.
According to the University of Minnesota’s Davis Logsdon, who supervised the study, the results portend "significant challenges ahead" for Cruz’s campaign. "It’s hard to get your message out if, four seconds in, people just start screaming uncontrollably, as many of our participants did last night," he said.
