Sen. Ted Cruz is facing the wrath of the left for having been spotted with his family reportedly boarding an airplane en route to Cancun Wednesday afternoon.
Images of Cruz at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport emerged late Wednesday and early Thursday morning, first from random Twitter users, and then later from verified blue checkmark journalists like David Shuster.
Using the photos, internet sleuths were able to link the senator to a specific United Airlines flight from Houston to Cancun scheduled for 4:44 pm EST, Wednesday.

The Associated Press later obtained confirmation that Cruz had indeed traveled to Cancun but was headed back.
“The high-profile Republican lawmaker went with his family for a long-planned trip to Cancun and was expected to return immediately,” the outlet reported Thursday, citing a source “with direct knowledge of the situation.”
Politico’s Jake Sherman meanwhile obtained proof that Cruz was indeed headed back, and Lois Romano obtained confirmation that he’d always been intent on flying home — that his goal had only been to accompany his family en route to Cancun.
Cruz is expected to release a formal statement sometime Thursday, not that it will likely do anything to calm the rage that’s being directed his way by the left.
Fresh off of celebrating the death of legendary conservative radio show host Rush Limbaugh, members of the left are now shrieking for his resignation. The more hateful ones have even managed to combine both subjects.
Whether or not the senator had truly been intent on just accompanying his family en route to Cancun probably doesn’t matter to these people. They already hated him for just being a conservative, not to mention for his decision to legally challenge the 2020 election results.
Keep in mind that these defenses are based on the presumption that Cruz had traveled to Cancun to vacation, not simply accompany his family for the trip.
