Ted Cruz really does not comprehend what all the difficulty has to do with.
Is he among just two Senators from Texas? Yes.
Is his home state actually getting struck by record-low temperature levels and numerous days’ worth of snowstorms, while being so ill-equipped to handle such weather condition that countless citizens lack power and/or water?
Did Cruz really jet off on Wednesday night for a trip to Cancun, despite the conditions in the state he represents outlined above?
However what did you anticipate the least-popular politician in D.C. to do?!?
His children asked actually nicely go away for a bit!
As you can see by means of the picture above, taken by a brave fellow traveler, Cruz was spotted on Wednesday evening at the airport in Dallas.
He was then also photographed a short time later board a United Airlines flight reserved for Cancun, much to the outright consternation of even those who expect really bit from their chosen authorities.
There are endless power outages in his state and a death toll that rises by the day– and not just did Cruz fly off to another country amid this ongoing disaster …
… he got the help of Houston police officers to guarantee his security.
Certainly, a Houston authorities spokeswoman has told People Publication that Cruz’s personnel “called the other day [Wednesday] to state that he would remain in the airport and requested HPD’s support, at which time, when he arrived at Bush Intercontinental Airport, our officers monitored his movements.”
We can consider no much better use of this department’s time and resources.
With the reaction both instant, effective and originating from every side– even Fox News published the photos of Cruz at the airport– Cruz launched a declaration on Thursday.
It handles to in some way be sexist, hilarious and plainly untrue all at the exact same time.
After acknowledging the storms that have claimed 20 lives to date and left countless Texans without houses or electricity, Cruz wrote:
With school cancelled for the week, our girls asked to take a trip with friends. Wishing to be a great papa, I flew down with them last night and am flying back this afternoon.
My personnel and I remain in continuous interaction with state and regional leaders to get to the bottom of what took place in Texas. We desire our power back, our water on, and our homes warm.
My group and I will continue using all our resources to keep Texans informed and safe.
This, of course, is ridiculous on numerous levels.
Appearance at that above image of Cruz at the airport. Does the Senator appear like somebody who loaded for just one night?
SECOND, why did Cruz’s children need their father to presumably accompany them for just one flight? Is his wife incapable of traveling with them?
THIRD, a United Airlines source has confirmed that Cruz re-booked his return ticket to Texas at 6 a.m. Thursday and that he was originally set up to go back house on Saturday.
There was also this:
In a podcast interview on Tuesday, Cruz said that his house had NOT lost power and his family was hosting other area kids, according to the Morning News.
The long-time politician and U.S. Capitol insurrection instigator prompted others on the podcast “if you can stay home, do not head out on the roads, don’t risk the ice …
” Don’t risk it. Keep your family safe, and simply stay at home and hug your kids.”
Well, sure, yeah.
What if your kids really wan na go to Mexico and you do not care even the slightest bit about your constituents?
What, Ted Cruz wants to know, need to you do then?!?
