You know Star Wars: The Force Awakens is breaking box office records and has successfully taken over the world, when potential presidential nominees start chiming in. This week, Republican hopeful Ted Cruz said Han Solo shot first while fielding questions about Star Wars, The Avengers, Star Trek, and The Hunger Games.
He then snuck in which side of the fence he stood, when it came to the iconic argument of "who shot first, Han Solo or Greedo?"
Just for the record, Han Solo shot first.
Cruz then went on to add that he was thankful Star Wars: The Force Awakens didn't feature Jar Jar Binks, before moving onto Star Trek and liking his personality to that of Spock and Captain Kirk.
While it's clear that Ted Cruz has the Force on the brain, he isn't the other politician to be pulled to the dark side (seriously). Here are seven other times politicians referend Star Wars and showed the force was with them, for better or for worse.
