Jimmy Kimmel Goes to Town on Ted Cruz

  • Texas Senator Ted Cruz flew to Mexico amid state energy crisis, US media report

"Seriously", Heidi Cruz appears to have written.

A series of leaked text messages have thrown cold water on Texas Sen.

Cruz ironically referenced that history while flying to Mexico as millions of Texans faced unprecedented power outages.

Part of the one on one interview with @tedcruz about his trip to Cancun.

She reportedly invited friends and neighbors to join them at the Ritz-Carlton in Cancun, where she noted that the price for a hotel room was $309 plus tax. "Is everyone warm? That's a must! So right now we've got a bunch of the neighborhood kids all over playing with our girls, because their parents lost power and our house was lucky". "Anyone can or want to leave for the week?" She noted that they had stayed there "many times" and that it has good security.

Another group member asks who the sender is. Protesters greeted Cruz at the airport Thursday with signs and chants saying "Resign!"

Insider reached out to Sen.

Cruz's office did not immediately say whether the senator would self-quarantine. Subsequent questions sent from Insider via text message to a number for Heidi Cruz were left on "read".

It would appear as though public pressure forced Ted Cruz into an earlier than expected return to Texas, with NBC news reporting that he had initially meant to return on Saturday, but booked a return flight at 6am local time on Thursday.

The senator from Texas was lambasted Thursday after photos of him at the airport heading to Cancun on Wednesday afternoon surfaced and spread through social media.

The Texas representative is under fire over his short trip to Cancun, which he has blamed partially on his family, amid mixed messages about how his family has been affected by the blackouts and storms.

"With school canceled for the week, our girls asked to take a trip with friends".

"In hindsight", he said, "I wouldn't have done it". "Though Cruz claims he was alway at the helm". But as more information about the trip became clear Thursday, the senator's explanation began to crumble.

As he returned later Thursday to a state where hundreds of thousands of residents were still grappling with the fallout of a storm that crippled the power grid, he was more direct about the mistake.

Then speaking to reporters outside his house Thursday evening, he acknowledged that he had originally meant to stay in Mexico through the weekend even as millions of Texans remained without power or heat after a rare winter storm caused mass blackouts across the state. Even Cruz called out Adler's hypocrisy at the time.

At around 4:45 p.m., the senator was setting off for Cancun, Mexico, where it's been sunny with temperatures in the 80s, for a family vacation.

Cruz said he had planned to stay through the weekend, but had second thoughts "almost the moment I sat down on the plane". And I flew back this afternoon.
