Longtime ‘The Princess Bride’ Fan Ted Cruz Loses It After Cast Reunites To Back Democrats

The cast of “The Princess Bride” announced over the weekend that the cast will be reuniting for a fundraiser supporting Democrats in Wisconsin.

This seems to have sparked outrage among Republicans, including a longtime fan of the film Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

Cast members from the film will be taking part in a virtual table read for the fundraiser — which a site for the event said will feature actors Robin Wright, Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin and Billy Crystal.

Cruz took to Twitter to respond to the announcement by referring to lines from Inigo Montoya, a character portrayed by Patinkin in the 1987 film.

“Do you hear that Fezzik? That is the sound of ultimate suffering. My heart made that sound when the six-fingered man killed my father,” he wrote in the tweet.

“Every Princess Bride fan who wants to see that perfect movie preserved from Hollywood politics makes it now,” Cruz, who has been vocal in the past about his feelings for the film and acted out a scene from the flick when he was running for president in 2015, added.
