Ted Cruz is incredibly talented at not being able to read the room, and sometimes that room includes much of Texas. And he will never live down his mind-numbing decision to fly to sun-soaked Cancun during the state’s devastating 2021 ice storm. Two years on, and it’s still everything that many people think about (also, poor snowflake) when Ted Cruz comes to mind. He was weaselly about Cancun, and no one will let him forget it.
That’s what happened when Ted took to his official “senator” Twitter account where he does less trash talking (and alleged browsing) than on his more personal account. Ted decided to post a video where he expressed gratitude to Texas, and it didn’t go well for him. “It is the honor of my life to fight for 30 million Texans,” he also tweeted. “I will always fight to incentivize job creation, lower inflation, secure our southern border, and unleash American energy.”

Oh boy. The power grid issue is glaring. As well, Ted did go to his main account, too, where he dissed the president because “It’s ridiculous that Joe Biden hasn’t been to East Palestine.”
It’s ridiculous that Joe Biden hasn’t been to East Palestine.
It’s all politics all the time for Biden and he doesn’t give a damn!

Presumably, Ted’s upset that Biden visited Ukraine this week (while Trump did visit East Palestine), but whatever the case, both of these tweets are sparking the Cancun jokes that shall never grow old.
And it’s a good thing this is true, for Ted Cruz. Otherwise it would be SO much harder to get outta there and head to Cancun every time the power grid fails. #DemVoice1 pic.twitter.com/8pWwcuKokM

Rafael you won’t even fight for your wife and you flee the state at the slightest hint of bad weather. No one believes you.

You can’t even manage the energy grid in your own state. Every time it’s cold it fails, a little rain it fails. Fix your own house before anything else.

Says the guy who left Texas for Cancun!

Or he’ll just run away to Cancun, after screaming at the ticket counter, “Don’t you know who I am?”

Unless it’s too cold, then you flee to Cancun!

But you fled to Mexico when it got cold. You left your constituents enduring that cold instead of working on what could be done. Seriously Ted. Seriously!
