Ted Cruz Takes Off For A Cancun Resort As His Texas Constituents Continue To Freeze Without Power

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is going viral again. And, as usual, it’s for all the wrong reasons.

As the debacle that is the Texas power grid continues to leave millions without electricity in freezing temperatures, Cruz has found a way to stay warm: a family trip to Cancun.

A tweet by journalist David Shuster shows Cruz boarding a plane for the Caribbean destination.

Just confirmed @SenTedCruz and his family flew to Cancun tonight for a few days at a resort they’ve visited before,” Shuster tweeted. “Cruz seems to believe there isn’t much for him to do in Texas for the millions of fellow Texans who remain without electricity/water and are literally freezing.”

Shuster tweeted a follow-up to address those who are skeptical of the photo’s credibility.
