Ted Cruz’s presidential announcement invaded by Rand Paul supporters

SHARE Ted Cruz’s presidential announcement invaded by Rand Paul supporters

Not only was TedCruz.com trolling Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, on Monday morning, but while he was making his 2016 presidential bid announcement, some supporters for Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, managed to get a prime spot behind Cruz at Liberty University.

They apparently took Paul’s advice on Twitter, although did this in person:

And some of them took to the anonymous social app Yik Yak, which allows users to post and see what other are saying within a 1.5-mile radius.

Business Insider captured some fairly disgruntled students in attendance.
