Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) accused Vice President Kamala Harris of running away from the border despite the fact that he literally ran away from Texas during a winter storm back in February.
Policies put in place by disgraced former President Donald Trump created a mess at the border that included thousands of children being taken away from their parents and locked in cages. Trump’s failure to properly process migrants seeking asylum also created an overflow. Republicans, of course, have tried to gin up the situation as if it’s a scandal to panic about.
Harris heads up the effort to fix border issues, with her focus being on dealing with the issues that cause migrants to come here in the first place. So far, her efforts are bearing fruit and the situation at the border is rapidly improving as kids are being reunited with their parents.
But Cruz wants us to believe Harris is scared of the border, so he used a Monty Python “run away” joke to attack her, completely oblivious to the irony since he literally fled Texas for Cancun during a deadly winter storm that knocked out electricity and killed at least 150 people with an estimated death toll being north of 500.

Twitter users were not amused.
Is this live footage of your during the Texas Energy Crisis?

You shouldn’t be talking about people running away, Cancun Cruz.

She head to Cancun?

Hahah…sorry I wasn’t laughing at your terrible attempt at humour. I was just laughing at how the Don called your wife ugly, blamed JFK’s assassination on your Dad and then you kowtow to him and campaign for him. Haha. That was funny.

Looks exactly like your leadership style during the Texas snowstorm.

Similar to your style when your state went dark. Isn’t that what you did? Run away, run away, run away!

My God you are bad at this.
Focus on governing, or at least staying in the country.
Comedy is not a strength for you.

Who ran away to Mexico when Texans needed him? Who ran away to Israel to avoid actually working in Washington?

It’s like Ted Cruz likes reminding us of how sh*tty a person he is. He should delete his Twitter account before he embarrasses himself even further.
