Texas Senator Ted Cruz Says He Flew Down to Mexico to ‘Be a Good Dad’
Social media exploded Thursday after reports surfaced that Texas Sen. Ted Cruz had jetted off to Mexico as millions of his constituents suffered without power or drinkable water during a freak storm system that has crippled his home state. State Democrats demanded Cruz resign. Cruz’s explanation for the trip, that he was dropping off his kids on a trip, was seen as out of touch by many and dubious by others. Cruz's staff had contacted local police Wednesday night asking for help at the airport.
