​A fake video that shows Sen​. Ted Cruz apparently slurping up a fly and then washing it down with a swig of water during an appearance on Fox News went viral late Wednesday night with the hashtag “ToadCruz” trending.

The video attracted Twitter users like a moth to light.

“Overheard in Cancun: Is that Señor Frog? No, that’s #ToadCruz,” wrote one Twitter user, linking to the doctored video.

“It’s appropriate that a fly landed on #TurdCruz so now he’s also #ToadCruz,” said another netizen.

“Public Service Announcement: Wait until after you’ve finished breakfast to see why #ToadCruz is trending,” posted another.

Mediaite ​reported that the video is from Cruz’s appearance on Sean Hannity’s show in June 2019 when Cruz paused for a moment to take a drink of water to clear his throat — but no fly appeared in the shot.

Other users compared it to the fly crawling on former Vice President Mike Pence’s head during his debate with then-Sen. Kamala Harris during the October 2020 debate.
