Did Ted Cruz Eat a Booger on National TV?

Ted Cruz has a lot to say, but on Thursday night it was a little hard to pay attention.

Cruz was delivering a few impassioned lines about rival Donald Trump when a small object -- a crumb, really -- dropped from his upper lip to his bottom lip. Then, the crumb disappeared altogether, presumably entering Cruz's digestive system.

Was it a booger? A crumb of apple pie? Was it something else entirely? We may never know.
