    Sen. Ted Cruz and his family flew to Cancun, Mexico, he confirmed in a statement to CNN, as a winter disaster in his home state left millions without power or water.
    Cruz, a Texas Republican, said in the statement he flew down for a night because his daughters "asked to take a trip with friends."
    "With school cancelled for the week, our girls asked to take a trip with friends. Wanting to be a good dad, I flew down with them last night and am flying back this afternoon," he said in the statement. "My staff and I are in constant communication with state and local leaders to get to the bottom of what happened in Texas. We want our power back, our water on, and our homes warm. My team and I will continue using all our resources to keep Texans informed and safe."
    Cruz tested negative for Covid-19 before returning, an aide told CNN.
    His statement comes hours after multiple Twitter users posted photos showing Cruz and his family at Houston's airport and aboard a flight bound for Cancun, Mexico.

      Why do these people ever do unbiased reporting. Cruz was a nothing burger.

    2. Desk Studio animation

      As much as I don't like CNN, they have a point. Ted Cruz is a total asshole

      Let me change your title: "Andrew Cuomo remains governor while 15,000 are dead because of him."

      1. dpdy

        He’s the best governor ever. He is doing such a good job! Oh wait....Biden’s win is secured right??? Okay, now we can tell people the truth.

    4. Joe Livingston

      He was being a good dad and at the same time he was working on his computer. If any democrat had done this they would be praised by the fake news media. Yet cnn still refuses to talk about andrew cuomo being investigated for putting china virus patients in nursing homes where everyone died, and he is being investigated for sexual harassment. I guess the metoomovement only applies against repulbicans

    5. Robert Hartford

      Odumba went to Rio.

    6. Antonio Rivero

      Como siempre, CNN tergiversando las cosas

    7. Moxie Boots

      Cuomo moves elderly to nursing homes to die. Let’s talk about that

    8. Bonnie Prete

      At least cruz can admit he was wrong can gov cuomo He will never admit it

    9. Tim S

      Ted Cruz goes on vacation and the left wants a resignation. Eric Swalwell sleeps with a spy and....nothing!

    10. KJ Hocken

      Oh waaaaa boo hoo,

    11. Ann Car

      Ted did it right. God comes first, then spouse and family followed by work. He did it right. Proud of you Ted.

    12. Henry Clark

      AND WHAT DID POLOSI DO .A FEW TIMES SO SHUT UP

    13. rokaforkrak

      ''i know i know .. the people , no food , water , freezing , dying ... but my kid really really wanted to go !!!! you know !! ''

    14. Krie

      Ted needs to be less white! 🤣😂

    15. Alan

      Choice between 2 kids in an expensive hotel room and the warm, open beaches, let's see... Ooo that's a hard one, let me circle back.

      1. Soviet Elmo

        His job is to lead the state. Your not supposed to abandon Texas during a crisis. He isn’t some normal Texas citizen, he has a job to do, and that is to guide Texas.

      "Cancun Coward"!

    17. R. Marie Mouton

      Explain to me: why the Democrats are questioning an Election in a House Race Mairette Miller-Meeks and Amy Hart. Amy Hart has gone to House Committee to get it overturned, instead of going through the Courts like POTUS Trump. This is happening in Iowa and they are hearing the case. Yet, they refused POTUS Trump. Why are the Democrats getting away with this , yet POTUS Trump was silenced? Explain I want to understand???? And this is nor in the Media???? Why???

    18. R. Marie Mouton

      Explain to me: Americans can write, email, and call your All Representatives at the Capitol, State, Local for a Transparent Audit on the 2020 Presidential Election. The American People have the right to Recount and Truth. Why Americans are not being told how???

    19. Jim Shreve

      Everybody lets send ted some FROZEN "Texas Toast"

    20. Libby Mcbibby

      Yo CNN what about Cuomo? The killer of thousands!

    21. Garen McVay

      Ted Cruz the water boy said when you can't take the cold you get out of Texas. And go to Cancun!

    22. mij cirtap

      President Joe Biden’s nominee for U.S. attorney general, Merrick Garland, said during the first day of his confirmation hearing on Monday that the attacks on federal courthouses in the Pacific Northwest may not qualify as domestic terrorism because the attacks happen at night when the court is closed. “Let me ask you about assaults on federal property in places other than Washington, D.C. Portland for instance, Seattle,” Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) said. “Do you regard assaults on federal courthouses or other federal property as acts of domestic extremism, domestic terrorism?

    23. R. Marie Mouton

      American People do your RESEARCH. Be objective and listen to all News and all other platforms. You will see the truth. Wake up Americans!!! I believed in Democrat, then I started doing my own Research because the main News Media, I noticed they were lying repeating the same stuff to push the narrative and agendas. Talk is cheap, Research and correct knowledge is priceless. I was born into a Democratic family I choose now as an Adult and My Own Person. AMERICA AND AMERICANS FIRST!!!🇨🇱🇺🇸👍

    24. Frank Rizzo

      Lyin' Flyin' Cryin' Theodore Cruz!

    25. Roman !

      Clinton whent 26 times to Epstein islan and you did not report this..

    26. Felicia B Brown

      Ted is just plan stupid. Why would he use the cops like that??????

    27. Felicia B Brown

      Trump called him right lying Ted

    28. Charmain Edwards

      He did because he n his family were affected...it makes a difference when these pple are affected directly

    29. Monica Ponce

      Taking care of people is a governor ‘s or president’s job!!!

    30. SmSler55

      And Biden plays Mario carts! Where is Biden when his Vice Presint is calling world leaders instead of Biden. CNN is a disgrace like Biden.

    31. David Smith

      I think it was probably someone from ANTIFA impersonating Ted Cruz. Snakes on a plane. Fake news, that usually a good get out or draining the swamp maybe?

    32. Gonz

      what Ted Cruz did, travelling to Cancun so his kids are safe, is what immigrants do. They leave behind family, friends, language, carrer, etc. to live under the shadow of deportation for years or decades, because even that is better than the place they came from.

      1. Soviet Elmo

        Refugees don’t lead where they are from. Huge difference. Also, Cruz is supposed to represent Texas. How would Texans feel about being represented by a coward?

    33. BigTX 77

      relax lib-cultists, it was cancun, not epstein's island.

    34. Карл Маркс

      I feel sorry for you, fellow Texans, that you’ve elected him! He fled to Cancun, while Texas wasn’t okay at all! It was freezing! He should be ashamed!

    35. Diann Showers

      Tequila Ted is a low life. Then he blamed his kids

    36. David Gibbons

      He said he regretted his decision to go to Cancun, it wasn't the trip he regretted, it was that he didn't take a private plane so he wouldn't be recognized.

    37. Ram 4570

      I just ordered my impeach Biden / Harris T-shirt and mask!

    38. Eric Rock

      So, biden and his country killing EO's are not news worthy? You're all traitors.

    39. Red Out

      Bad optics - but here in New York we have a governor who’s order resulted in the deaths of 15,000 of our seniors and he lied, covered it up as threatened to destroy those who spoke the truth

    40. Bridget Engle

      Ice storm in Oregon!!!!!

    41. Maria Huerta

      He needs to be voted out.

    42. Martin _

      Ted cruz and cnn are the same shit

    43. Hatori Hanso 123

      He wanted to go somewhere hot, I am sure he will go somewhere hot in the end, a damn hot place.

    44. Juan Bermudez

      A manipulative sob that does not give a rat's ass just like Donald J Trump

    45. Juan Bermudez

      Ted Cruz is a moron

    46. Fred Max

      But Cruz insisted that Mexico was going to pay for his trip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    47. Laurence Thornblade

      Cruz apologized 2 days ago. Nothing compared to when Joe Biden talked about how he black mailed Ukraine when they were investigating his son. It's all on you tube for all to see.

    48. Pete Wilcox

      this is your boy Texas. your republican boy...you voted him, you wanted him, and you got him!! enjoy.

    49. Pete Wilcox

      when the going gets tough...Ted goes to...MEXICO!!! HAHAHAHAH.

    50. Roughneck Garcia

      #CUOMO-COVID-COVERUP. IMPEACH HIM.

    51. Mike Brian

      Are we just gonna ignore that a week before we got the artic blast Texas asked DOE to lift federal regulations on energy output to sustain power in freezing conditions. But the Biden administration told Ercot to stay within "green energy" standards. Making texas purchase energy from other states at a ridiculous price screwing Texans. Plus are "green energy wind farms" were frozen and caused many outages also.

    52. R. Marie Mouton

      Explain to me: the videos on Biden, Hunter, Pelosi, Kamala, and other Democrats committed TREASON CRIMES on NATIONAL TV and are still in office. The Impeachment Trail proved their TREASON. SO WHY HAVE THEY NOT PUT IN JAIL ALONG WITH OTHER DEFENDANTS THAT COMMITTED TREASON AGAINST POTUS TRUMP FROM 2016 THRU 1/20/2021. WHY ARE THEY IN OFFICE? WHY IS THERE NO INVESTIGATION? WHY? EXPLAIN?

    53. victor li

      This guy as a US senator has absolutely no accountability. WOW, is sickens me to hear him explaining.

    54. old trucker

      Anthony Cuomo is under investigation for killing how many thousands of senior citizens, and you're worried about this! 👉🥴

    55. R. Marie Mouton

      Explain to me: why Biden is still in office when he had a prosecutor fired for his son Biden. Why? Explain? The Impeachment showed Democrats committing TREASON to the POTUS Trump between 2016 to 1/20/2021 on TV etc. Explain? TREASON was committed against POTUS Trump and nothing is happening to these Politicians? Explain? The whole world can see it.

      Democratic New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham reportedly used thousands in taxpayer funds to purchase groceries, liquor, and dry cleaning for her personal use. Grisham racked up a $13,500 tab during the last six months of 2020, according to financial disclosures reported on by the Sante Fe New Mexican. Her bill allegedly included $6,500 in luxurious groceries such as Wagyu beef and tuna steaks, as well as bottles of tequila, vodka, gin, wine, and beer.

      This is why voting is important! Stop making rich people leaders, and put people in place that really care!!!

    59. Biznez Buddy

      Ted Cruz sunbathing, swimming & drinking Tequila with friends in Cancun while his constituents are dying of Hypothermia!!!This is the public servant that you voted to make Texas Great Again.

    60. Mr. C.

      You have no right to complain if you voted for him.

    61. Sid Saxena

      Trump called Ted out right......laying Ted, ugly wife

    62. Rebecca Hernandez

      So what was he gonna do? The most he could have done was call people on the phone. He literally couldn’t go or do anything for all of us in Texas. I want to know where was Biden? Trump would have been on it the first day.

    63. Colleen Lally-ross

      Only one part I disagree with... It was 100% a state issue not " partly". Texas has its OWN grid, this has happened before so they knew better!!

    64. Todd Mintz

      Biden just said minorities are too stupid to use the internet ithomes.info/net/p6pv3MmpmXV9aXY/video

    65. ioan Dumitru

      Ted Cruz made America great again - he gone together with Silvester Stalone to free Navalnîi from Myanmar, but CIA abandoned that mission because the insider said Navalnîi is no longer in the same prison with his wife Su Chi, but was moved in Cancun city in Siberia ...

    66. Pontoon Sally

      That's okay. Coumo killed people. Talk about that loser.

    67. Matthew Dust

      Who cares. He came back in a day. Did we already forget that a governor in this country hid the details about deaths of thousands of people?

    68. Noah Ark

      It didn't get above 0 degrees for atleast a week where I live recently including 30 below zero.havent these people heard of wood stoves?

    69. Electric Gigolo

      Flyin' Ted where did he go?, He fled the state to Mexico, Knowing folks were so upset, He ran back to Fox to instead, Used his kids to save his head, Lyin' Ted.

    70. Ginger P

      Anyone remember how he protested help for the Hurricane Sandy victims? The hypocrisy is REAL! Hell, the guy was born Rafael....but insists on being called Ted. Guess that makes him sound more White. Mexico may rethink paying for that wall...to keep Americans OUT! Especially when they bring dangerous viruses with them. You never know-was Ted tested at the border?

    71. Zippy Ustar

      Fled Cruzebag or Ted Douchebag it’s all the same he will never be president he was born in Calgary/

    72. Yves Delage

      Merriam-Webster dictionary should use Ted Cruse’s photo as the image accompanying the “Hypocrite” entry.

    73. Miles Warren

      He is pissing on Texans heads and saying its raining!

    74. Edgar Felix

      Sounds to me like Ted Cruz is becoming too complacent. Hopefully, there are suitable consequences for this.

    75. Drew Lawrason

      Let the man take a vacation..it’s cold..what’s he supposed to directly do in Texas

    76. Faye Chioke

      Lol, his behavior is so Trump. You know when you are sucking up to Trump, you start acting like him.

    77. David McClellan

      Lying Ted just showed us all his real self Just like always does Like when he tried to overthrow the government. Worst excuse for a human being.

    78. Illumni trollers

      Cuomo has killed a lot of elderly people this is nothing compared to this

    79. Have beer will travel

      Ted Cruz causes PR problem just looked bad. Andrew Cuomo and his policies killed thousands of people in New York gets no coverage. Seems very interesting to me

    80. Red Out

      Here in New York we have a governor ( Cuomo) who killed 15,000 senior citizens and totally covered it up. Now he’s threatening to destroy people who are calling for him to be investigated

    81. HotRod G

      Biden visited yet? This host is such a joke lmao clown

    82. m h

      What’s the big deal? Billy Clinton left Hillary behind when he traveled 20+ times to Epstein’s pedophile isle. That was considered a beautiful act of hopey changey.

    83. Ricardo Rodrigijez

      The corrupted Ted Cruz was bought by the Olga or oligarch the oil Baron ind. How you think Ted Cruz get to go on Family Vacation? He receive big profit in the formed of the GOP campaign contribution funds who are being manipulated and coerced by the oil industry to corrupted people like Ted Cruz and others GOP to line their own pocket with lots of cash, we must vote all these corrupt Confederate QAnon GOP of the Trump party all out of office, all of them, country first" before party? or they "destroy" our "country" next the "world".😡😠👎 FACT !!

    84. ehill1536

      The odd reality of being abandoned by your representative and having your sworn enemy, AOC, do more to help people in crisis. It's past time for Republicans to go back to the drawing board. Please stop electing puppets who really don't care about anything but the rich and their own bottomline.

    85. Isais Chavez

      Good freakin Dad ?!!? I thought Mexico was Extremely Dangerous with Cartels, Rapist, robbers all that bad Crap .. So let me drop off the daughters there?? Let me get this straight Mexico?? Let’s build a wall to block them off.. YOUR A JOKE TED CRUZ

    90. JimBobBek

      Wow people are without power. Happened in NY for no real reason in the summer. But Cuomo is still here 😂

    91. Kate Jagger

      Does this surprise anyone?

    92. VintageWrestling

      I can understand the backlash from media if the Mayor of Houston or the Governor of Texas is on vacation but I don't understand the logic of going after a Senator. Ted Cruz really hasn't done much anyways for the State of Texas and went from lying Ted to flying Ted.

    93. Chris G

      I want to know how everybody feels about Biden put everybody else first and American people last??

    94. Margaret Rose

      Politicians suck.

    95. ridin dirty

      Burisma admits to bribing Biden with 900000 in criminal court

    96. Larry Beasley

      How does CNN still exist??? Who watches a news organization that has zero credibility???

    97. Bizzymom Hands

      CNN is all about blame. What about the CUOMO NURSING HOME SCANDAL? 🤔 That matters more than this pettiness.. (Watch my comment get deleted)

    98. Johnny Zeee

      Minor misunderstanding, completely overblown by liberal media. Lying , fake - news CNN has to attack somebody with Trump gone, so Sen. Cruz will do, for now

    99. Jan Spee

      You just can't make this shit it up!

    100. Golden's rule

      Since when do you need a senator to help on an weather emergency... That's for the governor and president to handle... Where's the scrutiny with them? Oh that's right this is CNN
