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.

So Senator Cruz has a planed trip for his family and there is a snow storm coming his way, so as most humans what would you do ? Suffer in a snow storm or going to a beautiful place vacationing with your family. He went to Cancun. Good for him that’s what I would of done. We are humans and love our families. So he get’s on the plane with his family then realizes as the the weather reports come in that the storm got very strong . He realized then when he gets to Cancun he personally had to leave his family and head back. Which he did and now the left Democrat’s what him to step down. What is going on with our country and why is the press jumping all over this. Maybe because he is a Republican and he is a Trump supporter. The perfect setup to grab another seat for the Democrats. What is going on is noting but disgrace to this country this is so hateful it is just unbelievable. I really believe the American people can’t deal with this anymore and this hate needs to stop with both parties Democrat’s and Republicans.

I don’t blame him a bit fir going to Cancun. The hateful Democrats have done a lot worse. Why should he stay here when there was nothing he could do? Anyone with com o. Sense would do the same thing. Get their family to a safe warm place. He’s not obligated to go stand in the cold because his neighbor doesn’t have heat.

ITS THE MEDIA’S FAULT. A friend & business owner in Houston Texas told me today, things are warming up, Highways are clear, the grids are coming back to life and things are getting better, except for those who’s pipes froze due to shoddy installation, and a lack of insulation. And almost everyone has their power back.
The Media…. No Way… They only speak the TRUTH…. LOL

Leave it to the Godless Democratic Party to complain just about anything that enters their feeble brains. The Democrats can commit all forms of crimes, and you can bet their Godless members will be protective of their tyrants to the end. On behalf of U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, I say; to hell with the Godless Democratic Party!

I totally agree with you. Good for Senator Cruz. He probably had better communications outside of Texas since there was not electricity to charge phones and laptops. What the Demons expected him to do? Stay in Texas and started farting hot air to unfreeze the roads and the turbines? It is disgusting that there are so many hateful a-holes in the Democratic Party and the media. I hope and pray they all freeze in hell.

Agreed. They are only trying to get rid of him because they are afraid of him. If Pelosi, Waters, Schumer, Schiff for brains, were in the same situation they would have left immediately and would have anyone’s head on a platter for criticizing them. They are dirty hypocrites in all they do.

Ted Cruz was an avid supporter to President Trump. If I could have flown someplace warm, don’t think I would not have. The DEMORATS would like to see all of us freeze to death with their GREEN science, i.e. frozen wind turbines, and solar power crap. ERCOT needs to be taken out and hanged, every one of them. Oh yes, add Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Schumer, Swalowell and all the rest of them. So take that crap and shove it where the sun doesn’t shine. I hope true Americans will remember all this DEMORAT wrong doings at the polls. I surely will.

Well what does the Arctic blast mean. Ummmm COLD!!!!!!!! So that means prepare for it. Make sure you have everything you need. Ted Cruz isn’t your house keeper nor you bill sorter so that means it’s not his fault. As far as kicking him out or making him resign. That is plum dumb. Just because he went out of town. Well everyone in the state of Texas had the opportunity to leave themselves before the storm hit. So please stop blaming someone for your own doings. Come on people children act better then most adults.

Hey James get a grip. Ted Cruz can go on vacation anytime he wants. You want the liberals telling you when to go on vacation? Just stop the whinny crap. It was planned way ahead of the storm. Our lives are supposed to be schedule by liberals. No! Start asking the democrats to resign for all the damage they have done to America.

Hey guys, did you all know that we, the American taxpayer, actually paid China for the Covid19 outbreak. That’s right, to the tune of 200 million dollars a year. Once Trump found out about it, he stopped those payments to WHO.

However, the Pretender President Biden has reinstated the US in WHO and is subsidizing the Wuhan labs once again. No wonder he knows for sure that another corona virus strain is coming.

From Conservative Direct News Site—
The Wuhan Institute of Virology is authorized to receive taxpayer funding for animal research until January 2024, the National Institute of Health told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

The WIV is at the center of widespread speculation that COVID-19 could have entered the human population in China due to an accidental lab leak. Researchers at the lab were studying bat-based coronaviruses prior to the outbreak, a project partially backed by $600,000 in U.S. taxpayer funds routed to the lab through the nonprofit group EcoHealth Alliance.

Blame the democrats for what is happening in Texas. Their green deal crap is what causing all the trouble.Democrats didn’t think about anything but what they want. Screw the people but give them a lot of money for stupid green deal. Ted Cruz has nothing to do with the green deal made years ago. Shouldn’t of Nancy Pelosi resign for her hair cut?Liberals give it a break. How about you get a job and shut up. You do nothing for America. Useless subhuman creatures with no life. Take your miserableness and shove it.

Well, Senator Cruz is allowed to take vacation with his family. I’m sure this was planned long before the storm. Just what could he do to change what has happened. Well, at least he’s not a pedophile, he’s not taking billions from China, he doesn’t go to countries and threaten them to fire someone or no billions released. He’s not spreading misinformation about this Covid crap. Ted Cruz is good for Texas and we need to keep Texas Red at all costs. Looks like the Green deal is not so good and everyone can thank Texas for pointing that out. I happen to be in Texas and proud of it. We are tough and Patriots!!

Time for these snowflakes and liberal haters to grow up. Sen. Cruz had NO responsibilities in the State of Texas. He’s not a state official and the state officials are certainly competent to handle anything Cruz could have done if he had stayed here. This is complete nonsense, and I doubt that Texans will fall for it.

We Republicans want President Trump to return to office and wipe out the Dems from ruining this country with their B.S.

Why is it the Democrats want him to resign but say nothing of Biden goes to Camp David and plays games and doesn’t contact the Governor of Texas and other states hit by the weather. Trump always did. Biden also skipped a town hall meeting in Michigan because of weather. The media of course didn’t cover this and only attacked Cruz. But we all know they are for Biden. Senator Cruz do NOT resign. You are too important a man and the US needs you and all others like you. The Democrats are well on the way to destroying the US. The senators who voted for aye for impeachment should never be elected again.

First of all, Senator Cruz had every right to take a vacation. Best of all, he paid for the trip with HIS money not taxpayer money like Pelosi and her cronies scheduling trips to Europe, Middle East, or California. President Trump made the ethical decision to put a stop to politicians traveling at a whim on the taxpayers dime. MAGA-2024! Furthermore, all the Democrat/Marxists in the House and Senate need to resign!
