Whether or not you agree with Ted Cruz’s family vacation to Cancun is a topic for another story.
But it’s how the press got wind about the trip that is truly disgusting…I think we can all agree on that.
It turns out that the press found out about the family vacation thanks to one of Hedi Cruz’s friends.
That’s right, one of the friends of Ted’s wife turned on her and sent a private chat to the media.
The (liberal) media outlet “Reform Austin” said it got the messages from a neighborhood group chat in River Oaks, where Cruz lives when he’s in Houston.
Here’s a copy of the message that got their hands on.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s wife reportedly boasted about the couple’s upcoming trip to sunny Cancun, Mexico, amid the “FREEZING” weather ravaging the Lone Star State — and invited several neighbors to join them on their jaunt.
The Republican lawmaker, who flew home Thursday amid outrage over his trip during the once-in-a-lifetime storm, has claimed he was only chaperoning his daughters and their pals on the flight.
But leaked messages obtained by the local news outlet Reform Austin reveal that his wife, Heidi, invited friends and neighbors for the getaway at the Ritz-Carlton, where she noted that the price for a room was $309 plus tax.
“Anyone can or want to leave for the week? We may go to Cancun there is a direct flights at 4:45pm and hotels w capacity,” she reportedly wrote early Wednesday, according to the outlet.
Our country is so divided and hateful, that you can’t even trust your friends and your neighbors.
Next time the Cruz’s want to go on vacation, they should probably just keep it to themselves.
