Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) attempted to criticize the handling of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan by saying that “America doesn’t leave Americans behind.”
For that, he was quickly reminded of how he fled for Cancun during a weather emergency in his state.
Cruz quote tweeted a video from CNN that was shared by the Republican National Committee late on Monday night.
In the video, a reporter speaks about a Texas family who had “been going to the airport for two weeks” trying to get out of the country.
In response to the video, Cruz tweeted: “This is horrifying.
“Bold words from a man who left all the Americans in his state behind to vacation in Cancun,” another user added.
It’s been a rough day online for Cruz, who also incorrectly claimed the Taliban hung a person from a U.S. helicopter. »
