Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) got his a** handed to him on Saturday when he tried to pander to Texans in some sort of awkward attempt to reconcile with them after abandoning them for the warm weather of Cancun as his constituents froze to death back in February.
The NCAA Final Four featured two Texas teams facing each other in one of the two games to determine who will play for the championship. Baylor versus Houston proved to be an exciting game, and one that Cruz tried to use to pander to Texas voters by wearing apparel from both teams and tweeting about it.
Getting ready for tip-off, with conflicted loyalties: I’m a lifelong Houstonian, but I’ve got a nephew & niece at Baylor.

Let’s face it, Cruz does not represent the entire state of Texas, only those who voted for him and sometimes not even them. First of all, Cruz is not a lifelong Houston resident. He was born in Canada and did not live in Houston until he was 4. He also lived in New Jersey and Massachusetts during his college education.
Cruz couldn’t even be bothered to drink a Texas beer while pandering to Texans, choosing instead to drink a Sam Adams from liberal Massachusetts. And, once again, let’s not forget that Cruz fled Texas during the winter storm that killed nearly 200 Texans.
Texans and other Twitter users ripped him a new one.
Well if it’s any consolation, fans of both teams hate you equally…

Too bad Cancun isn’t in the Final Four.

Texas may win but with you as a senator the whole state of Texas and the USA loses!

Boiled cheese shaped like person posts desperate attempt to look like real, actual human person. Fails.

You have never represented the entire state, but you do work for a smaller and smaller portion.

Condolences to your niece and nephew for being related to you.

Less than two months after deserting your constituents during a freeze that killed many, you claim to represent the entire state of texas. Smdh. You don’t represent me!

Ever try to get in touch with Cruz? His senate office phone refuses to take a message. If you send an email or letter, nothing is ever acknowledged. Not even an idiotic form letter like Cornyn sends.
Our TX senators represent no one but themselves & their big corporate sponsors.

All of Ted’s attempts to be a human being fail dramatically. Perhaps he should try imitating another species.

“Lifelong” Houstonian? You were born in Canada.

Surprised you acknowledge that you represent TX. You seemed to have forgotten that when you fled to Cancun

“Hello, fellow humans. I am going to drink a beer and watch a sport! We are the same!”

I too enjoy the sportsball whilst consuming a hamburger meat sandwich. I also have actual human friends who say I am very funny and likable

Conflicted loyalties sums you up pretty well there, Ted.

As he drinks a beer from Boston 🤡
— GHook11 (@ghook11) April 3, 2021
Cruz drinking a beer brewed in Boston, Massachusetts instead of Texas speaks volumes of his “Texas” pride. 🙄
— Alamo_On_The_Rise 😷🇺🇲 (@AlamoOnTheRise) April 3, 2021
And drinking a Boston beer instead of one of the many fine brews from your state. Face it, Ted. You’re a poser. You can’t hang.

In the end, Baylor won the game, but the only real loser is Ted Cruz.
