Cruz denies, denies, denies.
During the first gig of a two-night stand at the Pavilion in Irving, T.X., on Tuesday night (Nov. 27), Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor asked the audience if any of them had voted for Republican Senator Ted Cruz in this year's midterm elections. "Raise your hand, you guys, nothing to be ashamed of, just checkin'," he said in a video posted by a Reddit user.
"He might be here tonight," Reznor reportedly said of the notoriously ill-considered former presidential candidate who beat one-time punk rocker democrat Beto O'Rourke in a tightly contested race earlier this month. "He was bugging to get on the guest list, and I told him to fuck off." Reznor, a frequent, vocal critic of Pres. Trump, further explained his animus toward Cruz, tying it to an annoying previous interaction with the Senator.
