Two men with mirrors and a wooden cross interrupted a campaign event in Raymond, New Hampshire to perform an exorcism on Ted Cruz on Monday, saying that the Republican presidential candidate was “possessed by a demon.” According to The Dallas Morning News, Cruz had just finished his stump speech when the men began shouting at the candidate. “Ted Cruz look in the mirror and let the evil spirit depart!” one man exclaimed. “He’s possessed by a demon!” As the crowd booed, Cruz suggested that the “very confused fellow” was part of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ campaign. “He’s possessed by a demon!” the man yelled. “The demon has to leave. That’s why the body is so disgusting to look at!” A second man holding a mirror urged Cruz to look at himself so “the evil can confront itself.” “Evil body! Evil spirit. Look yourself in the mirror!” the man said. As the men were being removed from the building by police officers, Cruz noted that the interruption was an “odd thing.” “Usually lefties don’t believe in God,” Cruz quipped. The men, who declined to give their names, later explained to reporters why they had heckled the Texas Senator. “We just had to get rid of the evil spirit. I hope it works,” one man remarked, motioning that he was sick to his stomach. “He’s very hard to be in the same room with. We had to exorcise some sort of disgusting evil spirit. There’s a reason that the body is so haggard and disgusting, and the face, and it’s all so weathered and gross and hard to look at.” “And it’s because he’s possessed by a demon. Being in the room with evil so close, it’s just hard to even comprehend. The evil is so deep rooted and maybe if it had to confront itself,” the man added.
Protesters greeted Ted Cruz in Raymond, N.H., on Monday with a mock exorcism, dealing with a demon so vile they were retching. It's the second time Cruz has been greeted by such a demonstration, following a similar display last week in Iowa.
The fact that people think #TedCruz is possessed by a demon... 😂 American politics make me lol https://t.co/yagF7NaEgO

"Very nice young men and very confused fellow. Apparently the Bernie Sanders campaign," Ted Cruz said.

Two hecklers tried to drive the "evil spirit" from Cruz.

"Look at yourself in the mirror," one of the protesters said.

At least there was no projectile vomiting.

U.S. producers are pushing harder than ever for the right to sell U.S. crude oil overseas. It might seem counterintuitive: Oil prices are as low as they have been at any point since 2009 and the height of the Great Recession. Depending on the projection, prices could drop further still with slowing economies across the world. Oil producers are playing a longer game, betting that long-term demand remains strong and new markets offer lucrative rewards for U.S. producers. (AP Photo/Lauren Victoria Burke, File)
