Ted Cruz Is Getting Destroyed Online For Going To Cancún During The Texas Weather Disaster

While pundits debate and Texas residents fume about Cruz's behavior, other people have been, of course, memeing it.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is headed back to the US after getting a ton of criticism for jetting off to Cancún, Mexico, while his state deals with an unprecedented cold snap disaster.

While pundits debate and Texas residents fume about Cruz's behavior, other people have been, of course, memeing it.

Some people online never really miss a chance to dunk on Cruz, and this is no exception.

Many also made comparisons to then–New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's infamous beach day in 2017.

Ted Cruz took a page out of Chris Christie’s playbook. It didn’t work for Christie, and it won’t work for Cruz. Remove Cruz now.

#TedCruz is having his Chris Christie on the beach moment. But Cruz’s move is literally and figuratively a lot colder and lives are being lost. #CancunCruz #CruzResign
