Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) posted a Father’s Day message on Twitter that totally backfired as Americans reminded him that he’s a sh*tty son and dad.
In all fairness, Cruz’s Father’s Day message was superior to disgraced former President Donald Trump’s, which featured him referring to his critics and political opponents as the “losers of the world.”
It also bested Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Co.), who used her Father’s Day message to insult women.
As fathers, we are meant, in turn, to reflect God’s love to our children. That, of course, isn’t easy, it is the greatest privilege of a lifetime.
I love you Dad. I love you, girls. Happy Father’s Day.

But Cruz’s message smacked of disingenuousness, especially since Cruz failed to defend his own dad after Trump smeared him on the campaign trail. Cruz also blamed his own daughters for his trip to Cancun during the deadly winter storm that hit Texas earlier this year. Twitter users did not let Cruz forget how he has treated his dad and daughters.
Is being a father also throwing your kids under the bus when you get found running away?

If your dad is your hero why didn’t you stand up for him? pic.twitter.com/6XNGMFNBvS

The dad you didn’t defend when called a murderer? And the daughters you blamed for going to Cancun?

As a son, #lyinted‘s love for his dad is legendary, even when someone, a well-known pathological liar, called his dad a killer. As a father, #lyinted‘s love for his daughters is equally impressive, ready to throw them under the bus if necessary.

Or do more cosplay bullshit for a photo op. Just like everything else, I have no doubt that you “play” dad. This tweet is part of today’s cosplay. What is your “dad” outfit? Did you Google “what do dads wear”? pic.twitter.com/hJYONKzLSp

Ted Cruz is not only a terrible senator, he’s a terrible son and father. His daughters will be ashamed of him when they grow up if they aren’t already.
