Ted Cruz said ‘America doesn’t leave Americans behind’ and the takedowns wrote themselves
Texan senator Ted Cruz has joined the chorus of criticism of the handling of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Republican Cruz shared a CNN video in which a Texas family spoke about ‘going to the airport for two weeks’ trying to get out of the crisis-torn country.
Once again showing a baffling degree of self-awareness, Cruz said: ‘This is horrifying. And wrong. America doesn’t leave Americans behind.’
This is horrifying. And wrong.
America doesn’t leave Americans behind. https://t.co/k1olAjUkmh

You can probably see what’s coming (unlike Cruz, presumably). The mockery, it seemed, just didn’t stop.

And THAT's why Ted Cruz paid out of his own pocket to make sure every Texan had a First Class ticket to Cancun during last year's snow storm! https://t.co/y7bNspwUnV

It is terrible. But the facts are that the Embassy and State Department were telling folks to leave the country in April. By May, even offering to pay. People make choices, like deciding to go to Cancun in the middle of a major crisis in Texas. https://t.co/JVYOSfMSWn

Senators, however, do leave their dying constituents behind to run to Cancun. https://t.co/vfmLfuNUOo

YOU LITERALLY LEFT YOUR ENTIRE STATE TO FREEZE IN A POWER OUTAGE SO YOU COULD GO TO A RITZ CARLTON IN MEXICO.
