The Guardian reports:
CBS host Margaret Brennan said: “You introduced a bill to limit terms to two six-year terms in office for senators. Why aren’t you holding yourself to that standard? You said you’re running for a third term.”
Cruz said: “Well, listen, I’m a passionate defender of term limits. I think that Congress would work much better if every senator were limited to two terms, if every House member were limited to three terms. I’ve introduced a constitutional amendment to put that into the constitution.”
Brennan said: “But you’re still running.” Cruz said: “And if and when it passes I will happily, happily comply. I’ve never said I’m going to unilaterally comply. I’ll tell you what, when the socialists and when the swamp are ready to leave Washington, I will be more than happy to comply by the same rules that apply for every one.”

This is the most Ted Cruz Fucking thing in the history of Ted Cruz. ‘Just because I said I want term limits doesn’t mean I’m actually going to abide by term limits.’
He’s just so fucking feckless and craven.
