Jeez, ol’ Ted is looking a bit tubby. That would make him a tubby hypocrite, as well as a tubby liar, as well as a tubby RWNJ, as well as a tubby Fat Nixon apologist. More later…

Any news is good news if it rids us of traitor cruz.

I hope those two cops escorting him through the airport gave him a sound beating once they got to the parking lot.

So he’s sticking with blaming it on his kids?

He’s such a grimy sleazeball.

I guess he’s not aware his wife’s texts concerning the trip are out there?

So, second-guessing Mexican vacation. Encouraging sedition and conferring with the defense during the impeachment trial - not so much.

I too would like to get away (from Austin), but as it turns out if I call my local police to ask for assistance in getting to the airport, I don’t think I’d get the same response Ted got. (see NYT article)

So on top of this he required police resources to be diverted to help his getaway.

I feel like I owe @tedcruz an apology. When he voted against sending aid to my home state of New Jersey after Sandy I accused him of only caring about Texas. I was obviously wrong.

If only Trump was in Texas with him, they could use each other’s body heat to keep warm.
