Simply 19 of the funniest tweets about Ted Cruz fleeing Texas for Cancun
Spare a thought – only kidding! – for Texas senator Ted Cruz who’s come in for no end of criticism after he fled Texas in the middle of record-breaking cold temperatures that left millions of his constituents without power or water.
The Republic senator was spotted waiting for and then boarding a flight to the sunny Mexican resort of Cancún. Of course he was.
He later said it was ‘obviously a mistake’ – no kidding – and later said he was accompanying his daughters on a trip and wanted to be a ‘good dad’.

I feel like I owe @tedcruz an apology. When he voted against sending aid to my home state of New Jersey after Sandy I accused him of only caring about Texas. I was obviously wrong.
