Things got complicated for Ted Cruz when the notoriously antigay evangelical conservative was pushed into a corner by a clever gay Republican’s question during a town hall on Good Morning America.

In the wake of numerous and increasing antigay “religious freedom” laws, the question from self-described “lifelong Republican” and small business owner Todd Calongne was pretty simple:

“What would you do to protect me and my husband from that institutionalized discrimination?”

What Cruz answered with was a hodgepodge of small government talking points that seemed to confuse even him. Things just get even more uncomfortable for Cruz from there, particularly when pressed by out anchor Robin Roberts.

Watch Cruz get owned below, and join us in hoping he doesn’t get anywhere near the White House. Gay Republicans get a lot of flack, but Calongne just did a solid for the team.
