Ted Cruz made a statement while on vacation in Cancun claiming he only went to Cancun to accompany his family.
Sen. Cruz’s statement:
“I want to be a good father” … Sen Cruz doesn’t say he should only stay one night and some photos showed him with bags. It wouldn’t have taken so long to reply if he’d planned to just accompany the family to Mexico. pic.twitter.com/9uUTtsxc7W

As Kelly O’Donnell pointed out above, Sen. Cruz never said he was only supposed to fly one night but that he would fly back this afternoon.
Ted Cruz was released on vacation in Cancun while millions in his state suffer without electricity or safe drinking water. After he was caught, Cruz decided he had to cancel his vacation and come home after one night.
The idea that Cruz was only accompanying his family is utter nonsense. If Cruz was only acting as an escort, why was he taking his luggage and trying to upgrade his seat?
Cruz is running again for president in 2024, which is why he tries to label his lack of concern for the people of Texas as “family values”. Flyin ‘Ted got caught and now he’s crawling home to do some damage control.
