Ted Cruz: Canadian, Eh? No More.

Ted Cruz: Canadian, Eh? No More.

The father of Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), rabid evangelical preacher Elmer Gantry Rafael Cruz, has been questioning the U.S. birth status of Barack Obama. Then the Dallas Morning News discovered that Senator Cruz was born in Alberta, Canada and officially had Canadian as well as U.S. citizenship.

Awkward.

Senator Cruz finally renounced his Canadian citizenship so he’s 110%-by-God-American but it sure took a long time for the Harvard-Law-educated Cruz to get those legal papers inked.

So can Ted Cruz legally be U.S. President? His Mom is a Yank, so yeah. But that won’t stop the questions. Or the jokes.
