For months, Ted Cruz has challenged Donald Trump to a one-on-one debate. On Friday, the Texas senator tweeted, “Happy to hear @realDonaldTrump accepted my challenge to debate one-on-one”
The only caveat: Friday is also April Fools’ Day.
Linking to a YouTube video with the title “Donald Trump Accepts Cruz’s Debate Invitation,” the 72-second video begins with a clip of Cruz challenging Trump to a one-on-one debate. What follows are two clips of Trump, one of him talking to the press aboard his plane boasting that he has won “every single debate,” and the other, a clip taken out of context in which he says, “We’re gonna go on forever with these debates.”
And then, the familiar synth-pop strains of Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” appear, making Cruz the first presidential candidate, current or former, to make an April Fools’ Day joke in 2016.
