Someone Leaked Heidi Cruz's Cancun Trip Group Texts—And Totally Blew Ted's Excuse To Pieces

Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas has been the target of Twitter's criticism for several days now, ever since he was spotted fleeing his state in the midst of a winter storm emergency to go on a vacation to Cancun.

With unusually low temperatures causing power outages across huge swaths of Texas, as well as water and gas shortages, President Biden declared a state of emergency for the state. It was at this moment that Cruz decided to jump ship and go somewhere warmer for a while.

After pictures of him boarding a plane to Cancun went viral, Cruz reportedly booked a return flight and returned to America the next morning, claiming this was always his intention.

Cruz also claimed that the trip was only happening because his children were cold and he just wanted to be a good dad.

But newly leaked images of Heidi Cruz's group chat with her friends seem to undercut Cruz's explanations, suggesting the vacation was supposed to last longer for the Senator and had little to do with his children.



Many online praised whichever one of Heidi Cruz's friends leaked the images.



In the chat, Heidi Cruz, a managing director at Goldman Sachs, wrote:

"Anyone can or want to leave for the week? We may go to Cancún."

Her offer didn't appear to have any takers.



These text messages made many think Senator Cruz was exaggerating the truth when he threw his daughters under the bus to the press.


Some suspected Heidi Cruz herself was responsible for the leak after her daughters were maligned by her husband.



Cruz's trip to Cancun was a political disaster, with Democratic politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Beto O'Rourke of Texas both appearing to do more to help the state while Cruz ran away to Mexico.
