Republican Presidential candidate Ted Cruz revealed his favourite My Little Pony Friendship is Magic character at campaign stop. And it wasn't shiny pony Justin Trudeau.
Ozy reports that back in January during a stop in Iowa, Cruz noticed a little girl with a Rainbow Dash beanie.
“What’s your favorite My Little Pony?” Cruz asked.
“Twilight,” the girl answered.
It was then that Cruz revealed he too had a favourite pony. “I have two daughters, and they love Twilight,” Cruz says, before adding, with a grin: “My favorite, though, is Applejack. I just think she’s funny.”
The character of Apple Jack is the most 'conservative' on the show. She's by far the most 'country', speaks with a southern accent, works on a farm and wears a cowgirl hat. Chances are she'd vote for Ted Cruz.
This isn't the first time a big name conservative has mentioned My Little Pony. Back in 2014, Glenn Beck stood in solidarity with a boy bullied for his MLP lunch bag. You can watch that video below.
It's uncertain if Cruz's choice for favourite My Little Pony will help him at the polls. Do you think it will?
