Ted Cruz cooks and eats machine gun bacon (VIDEO)

As the army of GOP candidates fight to gain in the polls, they’re doing things like chopping up cell phones, making inflammatory statements and now cooking bacon with an automatic weapon.

“Of course, in Texas we cook bacon a little differently than most folks,” said Texas senator and presidential hopeful Ted Cruz before wrapping bacon around the barrel of a rifle.

Republican presidential debates begin today, but they’re all reportedly fighting for a spot in the Fox News debate scheduled for Thursday. The top 10 candidates in the polls will appear in the Fox debate.
