Ted Cruz phone home.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) received a strange challenge on Tuesday night when a constituent asked him if he would be willing to take a DNA test to prove he is human.
Seeming stunned by the investigation, Cruz laughed at the question awkwardly before offering a canned political response.
"One of the great things about our democratic system is that we can treat each other with respect and courtesy," Cruz said.
The unidentified woman quickly responded: "Is that a yes or a no?"
"Madam, if you want to get involved in insults, that's your prerogative, but I'm not going to reciprocate."
