As Texans face an infuriating week without power, long food lines, and sleeping at the homes of neighbors due to freezing weather, Texas Senator Ted Cruz responded to critics concerning his family vacation to Cancun.
He shared his trip was at the request of his daughters, who asked him to take them on a trip after school had been cancelled for the week. He noted he was in constant communication with his staff and state leaders to make sure water and power are restored to Texans.
But many say the story just looks bad for the Senator. While it’s great to enjoy time with your family, it’s hard to blame Biden or green energy failures when you’re with your family on the beach, especially when you’re a politicians who represents the very people who are struggling right now.
Cruz has had an amazing level of respect among conservatives, standing with form President Trump and the American people through turbulent times, but he will need to tread carefully and take some responsibility for his actions for this bone-head move.
