Texas families shivered in the winter’s night’s darkness, some with the children hungry and begging for food. The sound of water pipes bursting cut through the night making the water undrinkable. People could not get to work. It was lkely that they could barely stand on the ice long enough to make it to their cars. Today, 72 Texans lay dying from the coronavirus to add onto the giant pyre of bodies, over 41,000 in this state alone. So where was Ted Cruz?
Rather than roll up his sleeves and get to work on this terrible human tragedy, he decided to skip town for Cancun, Mexico.
Finally, Cruz responded to the growing backlash over his flight to Cancun while his constituents faced a statewide crisis due to an unprecedented winter storm and an unregulated power grid.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) released a statement suggesting that he only planned to stay for one night because he wanted to be a “good dad” to his daughters and join them on a pre-planned trip, according to YouTube:
‘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.’
But according to reporter Edward Russell of Skift, a travel industry news source, Cruz originally planned to return to the United States on Saturday, Loredo Morning Times (LMT) reported:
‘Spoke to a source at United Airlines, Senator Ted Cruz rebooked his flight back to Houston from Cancun for this afternoon at around 6 a.m. today (Thursday). He was originally scheduled to return on Saturday.’
Photos posted on social media also show Cruz with a medium-large piece of rolling luggage on his way back to the United States.
