Regular people can learn from politicians — Richard Nixon taught us to burn the secret tapes, Bill Clinton taught us why you shouldn’t lie under oath, and in the case of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, he taught us why you need a good relationship with your college roommate.

Craig Mazin was Cruz’s Princeton roommate in 1988 according to SomeECards, and has held on to his resentment for the Texas senator for 28 years.

Mazin lashed out against Cruz on Twitter Tuesday, saying that he suffered being the future senator’s roommate like the Japanese-Americans who were place in interment camps during World War II. He also said Cruz was universally hated in school.

This isn’t the first time he’s done this. Mazin has been tweeting about Cruz for years.

It’s unclear of whether it’s because of politics or personality that the two clashed. Mazin is now a successful Hollywood screenwriter who originates from Brooklyn, N.Y. — so maybe Cruz just hated his “New York values.”
