Ted "Cancun" Cruz abandons Texas for the Bahamas, and Twitter has opinions
Austin, Texas - When Texas was hit with a winter storm that shut down the state's power grid, Senator Ted Cruz fled to Cancun. As the state braces for more another bout with bad weather, the senator has once again left the state for a tropical getaway, and people aren't having it.
Nothing says "for the people" like a state senator abandoning those he's supposed to serve in their time of need.
As Texans are once again faced with challenging weather conditions like excessive heat and tropical depressions, Cruz is nowhere to be found.
Despite Cruz's attempt to convince people he cares by way of Twitter, it doesn't seem like many are buying in.
Twitter users call Ted Cruz out in major way
Twitter use Lakota Man replied to the senator's initial message and added their take of his words. "Translation: My team’s watching the Weather Channel, and I’m in the Bahamas. Because when the going gets tough, I get going – the f**k out of Texas."
"Resistance music" band The USA Singers called Cruz out using similar sentiments, writing, "Texas is once again getting pummeled by a terrible storm, so of course Ted Cruz fled to the Bahamas instead of Cancun because he’s a pathetic spineless do-nothing coward."
Author Brian O'Sullivan chimed in to offer his view of "Cancun Cruz's" fleeing nature: "Ted Cruz went to Cancun while Texas froze. I figured he couldn't be so dumb to do the same thing. I was wrong. With the looming heatwave, he's fled to the Bahamas. He is such a freaking snake!"
Political commentator Lindy Li also added her two cents by way of comparison: "A bad storm is approaching Texas. Ted Cruz has fled to the Bahamas A deep freeze killed hundreds of Texans due to a shitty power grid. Ted fled to Ritz-Carlton Cancun When the going gets tough, Big Turd goes on vacation."
From starting beef with Elmo to fleeing his constituents yet again, Cruz seems to be on quite the roll.
