Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has had high expectations for himself since he was a high school student in Houston in the ’80s.

In a YouTube video flagged Saturday by Politico, the 18-year-old Cruz said he wanted to “you know, rule everything” after someone off-camera asked him what his “aspirations” in life are.

Being a teenage boy, Cruz responded with, “Aspirations? Is that like sweat on my butt?”

He initially answered the question by saying he wanted to “be in a teen tit film like that guy who played Horatio” in a film called “Malibu Bikini Beach Shop.”

But then he moved on to more serious goals: world domination.

“Well, other than that, take over the world, world domination, you know, rule everything,” he continued. “Rich, powerful, that sort of stuff.”
