Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas recently traveled to the Mexican/American border, alongside many other GOP Senators, to witness the "crisis that is playing out."

Of course, once he arrived, he captured very little crisis on video.

Former Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke, who ran against Cruz in 2018's Senate race, called out Cruz on Twitter, saying the Senator was "looking for a crisis to cosplay Senator."

O'Rourke then offered several real crises Cruz has done nothing about.
