Don’t mess with breakfast.
Texas Senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz managed to combine two of America’s oldest favorites: bacon and guns. What was the result? A deliciously dangerous breakfast.
A Desperate Attempt for Attention?
The presidential hopeful hits an indoor gun range to show Iowans how Texans cook their bacon – with a little more firepower.
