The only silver lining to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) running for president is the comedy that will come out of his campaign.

On last night’s episode of The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart wasted no time pointing out how ridiculous even Cruz’s campaign announcement was, including the fact the students were required to be there.

“Let me clarify this a little bit: students at Liberty University were required to attend a partisan political speech where a small-government conservative who had just promised them he would respect privacy rights, told them if they cared about freedom, text your information to a mysterious address that collects your cell phone number for undisclosed purposes.”
