In Law School, Ted Cruz Refused To Study With People Who Didn’t Go To Harvard, Yale Or Princeton



Contrary to the new image Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is currently presenting as the leader of a “grassroots tsunami” calling for a government shutdown if the Affordable Care Act is not defunded, a much younger Ted Cruz was far more reluctant to mingle with the hoi polloi. According to a lengthy profile of Cruz by GQ’s Jason Zengerle, “[a]s a law student at Harvard, he refused to study with anyone who hadn’t been an undergrad at Harvard, Princeton, or Yale. Says Damon Watson, one of Cruz’s law-school roommates: ‘He said he didn’t want anybody from ‘minor Ivies’ like Penn or Brown.'”
