Ted Cruz attracted a sea of controversies after he left for Cancun, Mexico, while most of Texas suffered massive power outages amid a severe snowstorm. The severe weather also claimed many lives. Though the senator returned in a day from the trip after the outcry, the slamming did not end there. The backlash became worse when he tried to give reasons for his tour. 

"With school canceled for the week, our girls asked to take a trip with friends. Wanting to be a good dad, I flew down with them. My staff and I are in constant communication with state and local leaders to get to the bottom of what happened in Texas,” Cruz said. He also called the trip a “mistake”.

On Monday, February 22, night, the 50-year-old senator spoke with Sean Hannity about the Senate confirmation hearing for Merrick Garland. At the end of the discussion, Hannity brought up the controversy surrounding Cruz.

He said, “You dropped off your daughters in Mexico, you came home in a day, probably less than a day,” before adding, “You’re like 24/7, cause you dropped somebody off and you came back home. I still think you can be a father and senator at the same tie. Where’s the proportionality from the mob and the media?”

Cruz responded, “I think the media is suffering from Trump withdrawal, where they’ve attacked Trump every day for four years, they don’t know what to do, so they obsessed over my taking my girls to the beach.”

His reply soon attracted a lot of attention on the Internet as one user tweeted, “Fixed it: Unless it is for political reasons 'Whoever incites, assists, or engages in insurrection against... the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort, shall be imprisoned not more than ten years... and shall be incapable of holding any office under the USA.”

Another pointed out, “Remember that time where Cruz and his buddies were all up on their high horses because Pelosi went and got a haircut? I wonder if they were suffering from Obama withdrawal?”

A user said, “What a lie! Excuses @tedcruz @FoxNews @seanhannity go back to the beach. Leave Texas. My grandbabies were in the cold with no power for days. SIL cut down a tree, burned books, & furniture to keep them warm. You left your dog in the cold.”

“It's funny how Trump-loving corrupt GOPers don't really have a true news person to address when doing stupid shit, rather they go to their favorite entertainment host,” another person commented.

One user pointed out, "Face it, you failed Texas AGAIN!!! You can’t keep lying about your trip, blame your daughters, leave your dog behind then come to immediately hand out water WITHOUT quarantining and not have the media bring attention to it. No one is on Trump withdrawal except you!!!"

A user added: “Does he really believe that? Does he really think that he wasn't missed, that his constituents didn't truly want him home working hard for them, that skipping town and going on a vacation during a crisis wasn't something the voters would care about? What does he think his job IS?”
