Recovering from a bout of gastroenteritis, and was going to take this weekend off, but I just couldn’t pass this one up!

Sen. Ted Cruz flew to Cancun, Mexico, with his family this week as Texas dealt with a winter storm that left millions without power, Fox News has confirmed.
It’s the Daily Mail, so, they would find fault with anything Cruz or any republican does.

Trips to Cancun aren’t done on the spur of the moment – I’d assume his wife and kids have been planning and anticipating this trip for a while now. Probably wouldn’t have been easy to cancel at the last minute due to freak weather conditions, but I agree – it’s a bad look.

There’s this thing called “trip insurance” – perhaps you’ve heard of it?
Only illegals are allowed to flee to another country.

Lol. Like Cruz is responsible for the Texas energy policy. It’s a state function.
And who cares. I’d do it too if I could.

In other news, Biden pushes gun control and the unemployment rate is on the rise due to leftist policies, but by all means worry about where and when the Cruz family takes a vacation. /spit.

Good on him. After the whole election mess and the inauguration mess and the whole Pelosi-led fricking Capitol mess, yeah good on Ted.Hope he is sharing a margarita with his wife right now.

Ah – but it IS your circus, and they most definitely ARE your monkeys.
Maybe the author of this article should bring his Hot Air to Texas and generate some energy to warm some houses. Cruz isn’t even in Texas and airports here were closed until yesterday. People know you can work in DC or Cancun and still do your job, right? BS story and post.

And then, quite unexpectedly, common sense breaks out!
We bash Dems when they do this kind of stuff. Bad look for Cruz

I think he was born with that bad look, but whatever….
This is tone-deaf optics at its worse(sic). I never liked Cruz much, but wow.

Honestly, I expect him to resign over this.

He just gave his opponent in 2024 some great campaign material.
