A 1988 video has resurfaced showing Ted Cruz when he was a high school student.
The interviewer asked about his aspirations, to which the 18-year-old Cruz replied, "Aspirations? Is that like sweat on my butt?"
Apparently young Cruz was quite the comedian. He followed that up by adding, "No, no, oh, I see — what you want me to do, what I want to do in life ... Take over the world. World domination. You know, rule everything. Rich, powerful, that sort of stuff."

Former classmates have come back to cause trouble for Cruz before. Some who knew him at Princeton told The Daily Beast he was "abrasive," "intense," "strident," "crank," "arrogant" and "creepy."
As for this latest video, Cruz doesn't seem too concerned. His campaign manager told Politico, "Good to see he's always had a great sense of humor."
