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.

Business Insider captured some fairly disgruntled students in attendance.

And about all of that applause …
