When U.S. Senator and proud Texan Ted Cruz met with fellow Senate Republicans today, the meeting turned into an impromptu queso competition. Alongside Texas Senator John Coryn, Cruz challenged Arkansas senators Tom Cotton and John Boozman to determine which state's molten cheese dip was superior. The blind taste-test resulted in an Arkansas win, which handed Cruz his latest L of 2016.

But Cruz didn't let the loss dampen his enthusiasm for his state's queso. Media members asked the politician about his love for the spiced cheese sauce, and what happened next no one will soon forget. 

*shudders violently*

Naturally, Twitter found Cruz's comments just as disturbing as we did.

 God, this year is the worst.
