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.’

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