Apologies if this is old news to you, but Sen. Ted Cruz flew to Cancun, Mexico earlier this week while Texas was suffering from freezing temperatures and blackouts. He changed plans and flew back early, where he was greeted by a reporter there to document his walk of shame up the boarding ramp. The New York Times got hold of text messages in which Heidi Cruz invited others along. In the meantime, journalists like April D. Ryan have been spreading fake news that he and his family abandoned his dog to make the trip.
Politico noted that Cruz proved that the political scandal isn’t dead (Andrew Cuomo who?), and now journalists are proving that shame isn’t dead. Here’s the New York Post with stalker photos of Cruz’s family on the beach in Cancun without him.

This is creepy stalker-level shit.

So the hell what?

Why is this anyone's business?

Good for them. It’s what I’d be doing as well.

The Senate is closed, you'll understand soon enough stalkers.

Can’t wait to talk to my grandchildren about this extremely historical/important news they’ll be reading in their history books.

This is called stalking……
— Brock Krause (@BrockKrause) February 20, 2021
Leave the family alone. It was Cruz’s job to help Texas not theirs.

I don't care. Stalking his family is unethical.

I mean, he’s wrong and an idiot, but this is getting creepy

Leave the children and wife out of this
— Dianne (@dikell3) February 20, 2021
His wife and kids aren't senators, they can do whatever they want. Senator Cruz has a responsibility to his constituents.

I despise @tedcruz but this is wrong, delete this! Stay on target.

They are not Senators of a state in crisis. They can go and be wherever they want.
— Lori m (@lori_miley) February 20, 2021
Apparently not. Unless everyone gets to leave Texas, no one gets to leave Texas.
Sen. Ted Cruz’s trip to Cancun shows journalists can really dig into a story when they want to https://t.co/W30M3kDEDz
