Elections bring out the best and brightest our country has to offer, like this guy.

In Montrose (Houston’s artsy and therefore more liberal pocket), a mustachioed man was filmed pulling up and destroying Ted Cruz yard signs. When confronted, he yelled, “I hate Ted Cruz!” and retreated to a coffee shop.

He was warned that the property (the yard sign) he destroyed belonged to a gun owner, to which he responded, “Oh, I’m a gun owner, too! If you guys shoot me over that, that would be great, that would be really, like, an appropriate response.”
