'Sniveling Coward': Cancún Cruz Won't Live Down His 'Walk Of Shame' | The Beat With Ari Melber

As Texans continue to suffer during a statewide humanitarian crisis, Sen. Ted Cruz was busted for flying off to Cancún. Many are calling this incident and his subsequent “walk of shame,” as The Washington Post's Ashley Parker puts it, the most humiliating and politically damaging 24 hours of Cruz’s career. MSNBC’s Ari Melber is joined by politico James Carville to discuss Cruz’s blunder and the ongoing crisis in Texas. (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. www.thebeatwithari.com). Aired on 02/19/2021.

    A trip to Cancun for Ted Cruz during winter storm sounds FINE to me. Just proves if you set aside some money you can get out of town when mother nature rears her head. Good example for the masses to follow: Prepare and save so you can take care of your family. Did MSNBC think Ted should be driving the snowplow?

People like AOC and Beto O'Rourke(who isn't even an elected official!) raised money for Ted's constituents and brought meals /made hundreds of thousands of phone calls to make sure the elderly were okay as Ted lied and blamed his children like a coward. Ted Cruz is paid 270,000.00$ YEARLY to represent Texans...people show their true colors in a crisis and Ted Cruz fled the state as his constituents died. 28 dead Texans and no numbers for the homeless deaths yet.

Or, the fact that we have 90,000 immigrants crossing over into the US who haven’t been tested, let alone inoculated! I mean if Biden can give them all safe harbor here and Gov. Aid, why can’t we be helping our own people first? What’s really going on here gentleman????? What are YOUR priorities??? Do you have children??? Are they going to school???? Are they being tutored privately??? What about the children out there waiting to go back?? Eager to learn??? I mean what kind of sick game are you playing ?? You don’t have any News? Nothing going on in the world we should know about? Like The Great Reset??? Bill Gates buying the rights to the vaccine from Oxford so he can help expedite the process of getting the world the protection they need? Seems to me you like playing the part of the COURT JESTERS!!! Now.......Mark my words! From this moment on you will feel the sickness that your spiteful nature has created within the hearts of ignorant Americans......you will get a lump in your throat every time you speak ill of someone and get choked up from the guilt of your selfish beliefs, those of which hundreds of people have heard and your words have instilled fear or resent! Your gut will twist at night and you will begin to see the faces of the children, the homeless in your city that you refuse to acknowledge. They will haunt you, they will be in your head waiting for you to close your eyes at night!! You are cursed.....until you take a moral inventory of the choices you’ve made and the wrongs you’ve done! Then and only then will you start to be free from the nightmare you are helping to create!! So it is said, so it shall be....
