I can't say I'm surprised to learn that in the Venn diagram of Maury Povich's viewership and pro-Trump Redditors, there's at least one-person in the universal set.

And, on account of my night terrors, I also can't say I'm glad that that one person made the following discovery:


Her name is Searcy. After five miscarriages, she gave birth to a son, Jayden, who's 6 weeks old. She went on "Maury" to settle a paternity dispute with her fiancé, Freddie, who, the tests proved, is in fact Jayden's daddy.

Also, she looks exactly like Ted Cruz (and, by the transitive property: Duke point guard Grayson Allen, the Zodiac Killer, Rob Kardashian and the lead singer of Christian metal group Stryper).

Cruz hasn't addressed the latest rumor, according to the NY Daily News, but is set to speak in Florida at the top of the hour. Stay tuned for any updates.


And, while you're waiting, watch Searcy's drama unfold below (starting at the 23:30 mark):
