Watch: Ted Cruz Struggles To Answer Easy Question About Who He Is As a Person During Debate

During Tuesday night debate with Rep. Beto O’rourke, Sen. Ted Cruz got caught flatfooted on an incredibly easy question.

It was the kind of easy question often used in debates to break up the tension and give the candidates a chance to show their personal sides.

But for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), this softball question led to a long and awkward pause during his Tuesday night debate against Democratic challenger Rep. Beto O’Rourke.

Moderator: “Tell us something you’ve done in the last year that has nothing to do with politics that would give Texans insight to who you are as a person.”

Cruz went blank. Waited about six seconds, then let out a sigh as the audience laughed.

The Texas Senator eventually talked about the difficulties of being a father while also serving in the U.S. Senate. He spoke of missing his daughters’ events and having to catch up with them via FaceTime.

O’Rourke agreed and spoke of missing time with his family as well as playing drums on a kit “ostensibly purchased for (son) Henry but was really purchased for me.”

But it was Cruz’s long pause silence that had people on Twitter talking.
