Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) presidential aspirations were the butt of online jokes again on Wednesday. But instead of being mocked for pandering, his campaign was ridiculed for announcing Carly Fiorina as his running mate — right after being trounced in five primaries just a night earlier.
The harsh reaction from Twitter users only intensified after Fiorina’s decision to start singing on stage, as seen below:

This can only end with Carly and Cruz singing a "Lemonade" duet.

After Cruz' introduction of Fiorina & her singing about/to his kids…I'm confused. Is she running for VP or the Cruz family Nanny? #odd

And one user took the initiative by quickly releasing what could be the first of many remixes of Fiorina’s ditty:
