The world is not quite done trolling Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who famously decided recently during a power outage in the state he represents to fly with his family to Cancun, Mexico, abandoning his constituents and even his dog, Snowflake. Since then, dunking on Cruz has become a sport, but the ultimate troll move may have finally been accomplished outside his family home.
They brought a mariachi band to Ted Cruz’s house

While everyone loves a mariachi band, almost no one wants to listen to one play non-stop while showering, eating, or sleeping. That’s what Ted Cruz did on Sunday, however, as a group of protesters cheered them on to let Cruz know just exactly what they think of his cowardly attempt to flee the damage he helped to create and then blame his children for.
My daughter’s friend hired a mariachi band to play in front of Ted Cruz’s house since he likes Mexico so much. @QasimRashid @radioryanchase @Angry_Staffer pic.twitter.com/qeCTialMSA

Once cornered by the outrage of Texas voters, Cruz was quick to throw his daughters under the bus rather than take responsibility for his actions.
‘This has been an infuriating week for Texans. The greatest state in the greatest country in the world has been without power. We have food lines, gas lines, and people sleeping at neighbors’ houses. Our homes are freezing and our lights are out. Like millions of Texans, our family lost heat and power too. 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.’
Enjoy the band, Cruz. Enjoy it all day, every day, until the day you finally, blessedly, are voted out of office.
Twitter was delighted by the master trolling of the mariachi band. Read some of their comments below:
