Ted Cruz travels to Cancun as Texans remain without power

 

Sen. Ted Cruz and his family flew to Cancun, Mexico, he confirmed in a statement to CNN, as a winter disaster in his home state left millions without power or water.
Cruz, a Texas Republican, said in the statement he flew down for a night because his daughters "asked to take a trip with friends."
"With school cancelled for the week, our girls asked to take a trip with friends. Wanting to be a good dad, I flew down with them last night and am flying back this afternoon," he said in the statement. "My staff and I are in constant communication with state and local leaders to get to the bottom of what happened in Texas. We want our power back, our water on, and our homes warm. My team and I will continue using all our resources to keep Texans informed and safe."
Cruz tested negative for Covid-19 before returning, an aide told CNN.
His statement comes hours after multiple Twitter users posted photos showing Cruz and his family at Houston's airport and aboard a flight bound for Cancun, Mexico.

    1. COVID is CCP’s BioWeapon, search risk-life-flee-china virologist @DrLiMengYAN1(twitter )’s gene evidence reports, get a Gene guy you TRUST(not the famous ones on TV) to verify her reports, she has waken the right(she had to talk with the right 1st since the right was in power), help her waken the left!!

      PS:why CCP didn’t allow wuhan people go anywhere in china, but allowed them to go overseas?

    2. Exactly! He is a flip flopper and lier. He went to get away just like the other coward that didnt take responsibility for his actions.

    1. @Ian Bauer your momma ever so wise Minè said son,not everything you see you must have! Not even cuncan while water swallows our brethren

    2. M’y mother has always told us kids the same thing. Another trump’s poodle, what else can we expect, lies lies. we’ll never be able to get id of these Octopus!!!!!

    1. The media is going to be brutal for all Republicans who voted to aquit Trump. They basically sealed their fate. Everything they do is going to be under a microscope until they realize they almost elected an authoritarian for a 2nd term.

  1. “Cause the girls wanted to go.” Cruz knows the word NO, just ask his constituents, of which I am one. Puke stick.

    1. @ClayDog While the New York investigation unfolds…I live in Texas, no power for over 60 hours, while “our” Senator goes to Cancun…hell no.

    1. I will not refer to him as a man. He is a cruel monster. His day will come. Karma is only a B. When you are

    1. He packed in case of an emergency during the journey there.

      I always pack a lunch bag when I walk my kids to the front door of my house to see them off to school because you never know when one might get hungry on the journey there.

    2. Caught doing what .. taking a trip ?? … take another trip Ted …can’t please these haters… put some mistletoe in your back pocket…

    3. @The Heretic No, it wasn’t planned for some time, and there was a lot he could have done. Do you even know what a Senator does? Availability during a life-threatening emergency is necessary, even if he had nothing to do, which is not true.

    4. @J Groovy so it wasn’t pre planned?

      “And there was a lot he could have done“

      Great. Let’s hear it.

      “Do you even know what a senator does?”

      Yup.

      “Availability during a life-threatening emergency is necessary“

      He’s not available? Are not most of these committee hearings and such are occurring via zoom meeting? And where exactly do you have to be to participate in one of those? If such as his actual presence were for some weird reason required how long do you think it would take him to get on a plane and get back there?

      What could occur that would require his immediate presence?

      You see how you guys keep doing this? You keep saying “well there’s a lot he could do“ or “he needs to be there for all kinds of such and such and such and so forth“ but you can’t…actually…. say anything….

      So what did he have to do?

  2. Ted Cruz has the same character as the Titanic passenger who disguised himself in woman’s clothing so he could get on the ‘women & children only ‘ lifeboat.

    1. It ain’t Ted Cruz anymore. It’s Senator Rafael Cancun. He ain’t an American anymore. He’s a full-on Mexican.

    1. @HeyMildred so texas governor didn’t just cry about fed aid? shouldn’t dear leader of texas at least try to get fed aid to help out millions out of power and water?

    2. @Lisa Lightner Deregulation would incentivize and promote market entry and additional energy supply, not prevent it.

      But regardless, whether it does or does not in no way authorizes Congress to be involved with something like this.

    3. @Lisa Lightner, I’m not right wing AT ALL, but IF ” that’s literally all ya got,” that’s more than you have, you stuttering name-caller. Guess you were feeling left out so you took a cheap pot shot at me to make yourself feel validated. Here ya go, just like the receptionist does at the doctor’s office for my ticket from the parking garage: you’re validated.
      BTW, that’s not all I have ~ I put your name on the prayer chain. ROFLMAO!!!!!

    1. Even if we were to take him at his “Being a good dad” word. How incredibly elitist and corrupt when your 10 and 12 year old daughters get to take a fun trip with their friends in Mexico just because school got canceled that week. Also, how easy is it to fly out of Texas right now?

    2. You see, if you are not the kind of Ted Cruz, you could not be elected to senate. Full stop. Jan 6th was more about hatred toward politicians than anything else. They are all corrupt. Sorry to say so.

    3. @ClayDog Can you please stop tacking the same canned response onto every comment? So lazy (and not funny).

  3. I feel like, a LOT of these senators and representatives should be recalled by their state, rather than waiting for their term to end.

    As a secondary note, someone should check the books for that set of tickets. Make sure at least THAT is out of his own pocket, instead of freezing Texans’.

  4. “Ted Cruz is everything you don’t want to be in life” – Anthony Scaramucci
    I don’t agree with him on a lot of things, but that is spot on.

  5. First his wife, now Flyin’ Ted has no nerves/balls to throw his daughters under the bus, pandemic anyone?

    1. I once had a small dog that was a lot like you. But he was much better at constructing sentences and maintaining coherency. Still, you must have some redeeming quality.

    2. @Lisa Lightner Think so? Fair enough. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, so your comment remains as valid as you wish it to be. And to your credit, I don’t doubt that it can be easily understood by children as young as 4 years of age. Unfortunately, those of us who have seen it can’t help but notice that you failed to say anything that would prove you actually have a mentality greater than that of a 4 year-old. So that sort of puts the lie to your “weak game, bro” idiocy. does it not? Furthermore, I am most decidedly not your “bro”. If I were, I would be sorely tempted to slap my mother. .

    1. @Esperanza23 Eugenio23 he doesn’t care one bit dude, it’s not an election year. Come 2022 he’ll be asking you for your vote and donations. This guy is a weasel and a con.

    2. @Patrick Barber That is exactly the point, he got himself six more years back in 2018, he doesn’t care one bit about suffering Texans. I made the mistake of looking at his Wikipedia, my god, crook and con, otherwise known as a Tea Partier.

    1. @Priceis Right they don’t want that. Read between the lines. They don’t want brown ppl and ppl of low income in country. Legal or not.

    2. Lol if we get an ice age it will be exactly like the movie the day after tomorrow when all republicans will run to Mexico to hide from cold. Smash

    1. He was returning drugs that were smuggled into the US. What the hell does it matter how much luggage he had? You sick people just keep looking for something to point your hypocritical fingers at just because leftists tell you to. Can’t wait until they start coming after y’all just because you think you’re sooo clever & above the fray when to they think y’all are just tools.

    1. Starts off with the idiots in Texas who voted for him. After The Donald implicated his father with no evidence of killing JFK, anybody with half a brain could see the guy’s a fraud, when Cruz sucked up to The Trumpster at every turn.
