Ted Cruz Says Cancun Journey ‘Clearly a Mistake’ – however Declare He Did It to Appease His Daughters Falls Aside

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) offered no apology or even an honest explanation on Thursday evening after returning from a very short trip to Cancun alone after accompanying his wife and two young daughters to the Ritz-Carlton in Mexico for a five day short vacation.

But new details, including a leaked group text message confirmed by the New York Times, expose the two-time Senator from Texas as not being honest about the trip.

“Whether the decision to leave was deaf, look, it was obviously a mistake, and in hindsight I would not have done it,” Cruz told reporters outside his home when protesters asked him to resign.

Many said they were especially kind.

“I tried to be a father,” he insisted, not understanding that good parents teach children about responsibility, community, and caring for those who trust you by choosing you and not fleeing to a foreign country when she will go hard.

“We all made decisions when you have two girls who have been cold for two days with no heat or electricity and say, ‘Hey, we don’t have school, why not? ‘If we go, we’ll get out of here. ‘”

That claim echoed a claim he made in a statement released after he decided to abandon the trip and return to Texas, where millions are getting electricity back, but in extremely cold weather and in many cases without Water suffers and pipes burst and other damage.

In his statement, Cruz claimed, “Since school was canceled for this week, our girls asked to go on a trip with friends. I wanted to be a good father and flew with them last night and fly back this afternoon. “

But leaked group texts, the New York Times reports, show that Senator Cruz’s wife Heidi initiated the offer and idea of ​​the trip, telling friends that her house, like millions of other Texans’ houses, is “freezing cold.”

“MS. Cruz invited others to join them at the Ritz-Carlton in Cancun, where they had stayed” many times, “and noted this week’s room rate ($ 309 per night) and security,” reports The Times. “The text messages were made available to the New York Times and confirmed by a second person on the thread who refused to be identified due to the private nature of the texts.”

Cruz also revealed a lack of understanding of what his job is in his statement, especially during a crisis.

“In the event of a local emergency,” says Matt Glassman, a senior official with the Government Affairs Institute at Georgetown University, “lawmakers have a multitude of resources and one resource that can effectively coordinate and rely on certain groups of actors to help Put things into action. ” . Can become administrators a lot. “

In other words, Cruz’s constituents needed his help, but he chose to leave them, revealing to Texans and his daughters that he is neither a good example, nor a lawmaker, or a father.
