Cruz’s April Fools’ joke: Trump accepted my debate invite

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Friday “rickrolled” his followers, pulling an April Fools’ Day prank on who want to see him in a one-on-one debate with rival Donald Trump. 
 
Cruz tweeted “Happy to hear @realDonaldTrump accepted my challenge to debate one-on-one,” with a link to a video on his website.
 
{mosads}The video begins by Cruz challenging Trump to a one-on-one debate, a request he’s made several times. It then moves to clips of Trump saying he’s won “every single debate” and “we’re going to go on forever with these debates.”
 
The video then cuts to Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” — a play off a popular early-2000s prank in which internet users post a misleading link that ends up being the the 1987 pop hit music video.
 
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) also got a prank in for April Fools’ Day, teasing a “major” and “YUGE” endorsement Thursday, implying he would make an endorsement in the Republican presidential race.
 
Paul revealed Friday morning that his endorsement was for “entropy.”
 
“Yes Twitter, I am just celebrating #AprilFools #endorsingentrop,” he tweeted.
