Democrats call for Cruz’s resignation over Mexico trip

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has come under fire for traveling to the Mexican travel destination Cancun amid his state’s ongoing weather crisis, and leftists are gleefully using the “scandal” to call for his resignation

Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa said Cruz’s decision to fly to Mexico during a time when millions of Texans are stranded without power “disturbing and disappointing,” declaring that he should resign or be expelled from office for “jetting off to Mexico while Texans remain dying in the cold.”

Hinojosa wrote:

The Texas Democratic Party calls on Ted Cruz to resign or be expelled from office. Barring that, we will put all of the resources we have into defeating him and every Texas Republican who abandoned us in this disaster, including Governor [Greg] Abbott and Lieutenant Governor [Dan] Patrick, in 2022 and 2024. We are in a battle for the soul of our state. We must restore ethics, competence, and a government that works for the people.

Of course, the Democratic leader couldn’t resist the urge to reveal his real motive behind pouncing on Cruz’s lapse in judgment, attacking Cruz for challenging the election certification vote on January 6.

Leftists have been on the warpath against Cruz since early January for daring to stand up against the mob and object to the electoral vote certification, and the poor optics of Cruz’s trip to Cancun provide the perfect opportunity to revive calls to get him out of office for good.

Cruz, for his part, flew back to Houston just 24 hours after leaving for Mexico, admitting that it was a mistake to leave while his constituents suffered.

The mainstream media and Democrats continue to fixate on the gaffe, however, and Cruz is not likely to live this one down for quite some time.

Not only that, but what about all of the Dems going out to eat and rub elbows with the illegal donations from the Pharmaceutical industry and other corporations to get money illegaly? Actual embezzling of tax payers money to Maxine Waters, Illiam Ohmar, AOC, and others within the Dems Party? All of them should resign immediately, & not Senator Ted Cruz. How about the entire Biden Family, Kamala Harris, Obama, Clintons, & many other Dems should be in prison!

There are 2 different standards now in this country. The Lame Stream Media will willingly report anything any GOP person does & call for their resignation, BUT if the same thing is said or happens with the Liberal left, very little happens. It’s all the left has to do is ” give a half baked APOLOGY ” & the LSM will accept it & move on.
Gov. Cuomo & his under-reporting of nursing home deaths is a major story, but ABC, NBC, & CBS devoted more minutes to the fact Ted Cruz flew to Mexico than to the deaths of the 8,000+ more Covid deaths underreported.

No, and we The People need to be bold and stand against this. It’s evil. I believe they are the ones inciting the riots, and need to be held accountable. Unless we organize and challenge them on their tactics, they’ll continue. Turn the lawsuits, impeachment’s, expelling on them. Use their tactics but with truth a d not lies!

Seems like it ok for that demented old man in the WH the dems call Presidant to go to bed without even bothering to address the disaster going on in Florida……….but Crus was trashed for going on a preplanned trip? Pres Trump always called the areas and made sure resources were available no matter what the disaster or what the time day or night. How many of the dems have gone on vacation during the virus pandemic or riots in their cities??

I want Nancy Pelosi to resign also for violating the mask requirement and stay in place policy of the state when she went to the hair salon in spite of the orders. She also violated her her rule in the House on skirting metal detectors. I request she be removed from the Speaker’s position and be booted from Congress.

Amen, sister…they are so brainwashed by leftist professors that, they can’t even see Biden’s shortcomings.
Cruz left on Wednesday and came back on Thursday…you would think he ran off for weeks. They are just using it to distract from Cuomo’s mess, and Biden’s senility.

And you won’t hear about it if you are wasting your time watching the lamestream media. They practically wet their panties every time they see him and his loving, doting, Dr. Jill. There will never be a biased, hate-filled, lie-ridden report on this man or his administration on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC or NPR like they did to President Trump. I saw on Fox News this morning that MSNBC didn’t even cover Governor Cuomo’s scandel on Thursday at all yet spent time going after Cruz. Should tell us all something – if we haven’t already learned it over the past five years. Mainstream media is not to be trusted. They are liars. They propagate disinformation and liberal ideology. They are not news networks.

Good grief; he left of Wednesday, and came back on Thursday; Democrats have totally lost their minds. If Texas had had kept heating with fossil fuels, this wouldn’t have happened in the first place. So, if you look at it from the point of view that Texas is suffering because they listened to Democrat BS…it make them look even worse.

I spent 50 hours without heat, slept two nights in my truck, my pipes burst and my swimming pool pumps are damaged. Do I blame Ted Cruz for leaving Texas? That only reinforces my belief that he is a smart man. I used all my resources to keep warm. He used his. Heck, I would have gone to anywhere else if I could have. No! the problem with the Texas Deep Freeze is stupidity of the power generators. They have certain generators to provide extra power in the summer (solar, wind, etc.) unfortunately those don’t work in severe winter weather so the grid was overtaken and the generators shut it down. Really? why not tell us to prepare for that possibility—Don’t throw Cruz under the bus to deflect the cold light of reason. Relying on solar and wind in incredible winter weather? Really? Now the power folks want to charge the same guy more money to build more fossil fuel generators. What happened to common sense–oh, yeah; save the planet! Freeze the rednecks.

Why should Cruz worry about what the Dems day. After all how about all the leaving town queen Palosi has ordered for her minions.
The Dems need to look on their own problems before worrying about others.
If the GOP would try one tenth as hard to criticize ANY DEM they would be pointing out millions of issues.

If this was a planned trip, I see no reason he shouldn’t have gone. As for the Democrat complaining, what did you want Mr Cruz to do? I guess he could of run a electric cord from another state. And used a blow dryer to melt the ice. VA was down 2 days from the ice storm. We are not whining tho.

This is insane!!!! Ted Cruz is a very hard working servant of the people! But we should expect nothing less from the party of hate mongers and liars! The left knows in their cold space where their heart used to be that the TRUTH WILL COME OUT! If they can’t rip someone apart to fill that empty hole of hate driven lies then their addiction to sin is not satisfied. They are the most pathetic people on earth. They could stand to get an infusion of God, but they continually reject… Sigh…. God gave them free choice, see how that works out for them.

You could put all the democrats into a plastic bag and throw it over a cliff. There would not be one good body part left to recycle. Unless of course you are a member of planned parenthood. They could probably rummage for something to salvage to sell on the black market. Loathsome, despicable degenerates.

I agree that Cruz should not have left the state while his constituents are going through a tough winter.
Democrat mayors and governors and congressmen telling their constituents to stay home and don’t travel at various times during the China virus, while taking vacation trips and not wearing mask or social distancing is ok?
Talk about hypocrisy!!

Cruz did nothing to what the demoncRATs have done. He did something for his kids and took care of Texas before he left.
HATERS are HATERS as the demoncRATs have shown for many years but not as bad since President Trump was elected and ruined the scheming and stealing from We the PEOPLE. They stole the election from us and now they want to steal our country. TERM Limits,

Democraps want to crucify Senator Cruz only because he followed OUR constitution on January 6th. As far as he and his family going to Mexico after he asked Biden to help Texas but, ( Biden and Jill sent only their Prayers) is not a tragic problem. Why was Governor Abbott and Lt. Governor Patrick crucify for the weather in Texas and having parts of the Green deal in their state???????. This proves that the New Green deal DOES NOT WORK.
