Ted Cruz said you can judge a politician by how he acts in a crisis – and in Cancun, guess how people responded?
Senator Ted Cruz was too busy trying to make Democrats his own by claiming that their character had been “revealed” during a “time of crisis” – and yet he couldn’t remember when he flew to. Cancun when his state of Texas was in the middle of a storm crisis.
Talk to CNBC On Wednesday, December 15, the Republican senator called Democratic politicians “authoritarian” as he attacked the government’s mandate on the Covid vaccine.
“I think in times of crisis the character is revealed,” said Cruz. “And on the Democratic side in this time of crisis, we have seen that Democratic politicians are authoritarian. They will control your life, they will order you to obey, and they will destroy you if you don’t.
“These politicians say they don’t care: ‘Either obey, respect – or you’re fired,'” he added.
Cruz may be suffering from memory loss because it apparently crossed his mind that his character was in fact revealed when a deadly winter storm hit his state of Texas in February, causing a state of emergency. that left millions of Texans frozen in the freezing cold without electricity and water.
Instead of sticking around to help his constituents in their predicament – as Democratic Senator Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did – Cruz decided the best thing to do was take a sunny vacation to Cancun with his family. .
Of course, his travels caused negative reactions and caused him to cut his vacation short to board an early return flight.
At the time, he made no apologies and said he was “trying to be a good father” when planning his daughters’ trips. “Looking back, if I had understood how it would be perceived, the reaction of people, obviously, I would not have done it”, he added, calling the decision of “mistake”. BBC reported.
“Leaving with so many Texans in pain didn’t feel right, so I changed my flight home and took the plane for the first available flight I could catch,” said Cruz.
