It Sure Looks Like Ted Cruz Went to Cancun While Texas Freezes and Starves

Not content with amplifying rhetoric that resulted in an insurrection on the Capitol last month, it looks like Sen. Ted Cruz decided bail on Texas by flying with his family to a Mexican holiday resort during one of the biggest crises in his state’s history.

The senators trip has been confirmed by multiple news outlets.

Cruz’s departure was first reported on Wednesday when the Texas senator was pictured with this wife and daughter in Houston Bush Airport boarding a 4:44 p.m. United Airlines flight to Cancun.

Cruz was wearing the the same mask that he wore to President Joe Biden’s inauguration with the phrase “Come and Take” written on the side.

FOX News spoke with a Republican source who said the Senator had gone to Mexico, and that the “photos speak for themselves.”

The timing of Cruz’s departure from his home state for a non-emergency vacation is mind-boggling.

Millions of his constituents are without power and water across the Lonestar State following an unprecedented winter storm that hit in recent days. Now people are running out of food, too

And as Cruz suns himself in Cancun, where the temperature is currently around a balmy 78 degrees, Texans are preparing for more snow and plummeting temperatures.

Unsurprisingly, Cruz’s flight to Cancun led to some strong reactions on social media:

Many others pointed out that while Cruz was flying to Cancun, Beto O’Rourke, who lost out to Cruz in 2018’s Senate election, was organizing volunteers who spoke to over 150,000 people across Texas, giving them advice and getting them help.

Ted Cruz’s office did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

On Monday morning, it appeared that rather than remain in Mexico, the senator had decided to return home. CNN reported that Cruz was booked on a flight back to Houston on Thursday afternoon.

News crews were already at the airport, waiting to welcome him home.
