Seth Rogen calls Ted Cruz a

Ted Cruz is under fire for flying to Cancun, Mexico with his family as millions of Texans have weathered days without power during a deadly winter storm. "Anyone can or want to leave for the week?" Interestingly, Heidi's texts make no mention of their daughters going to visit with friends in Cancun.as their pops, Cancun Cruz, claimed on Thursday. "Seriously. Covid test to come back which we will take there".

'We were huddled around the fireplace behind me because it was the only heat in the house.

Even before the text messages emerged, Cruz was facing criticism from leaders in both parties, as well as his constituents.

"In hindsight, if I had understood how it would be perceived, the reaction people would have had, obviously I wouldn't have done it", said Cruz in an interview with ABC News. During an interview on Fox News, Sean Hannity attempted to defend Cruz. "The hypocrisy is off the charts!" said Kimmel, who's made no secret of his dislike of the Texas senator.

"With school cancelled for the week, our girls asked to take a trip", Cruz said in a statement. "Though Cruz claims he was alway at the helm".

Cruz said his home lost power at around 6pm on Tuesday night.

"I had initially planned to stay through the weekend and work remotely there", Cruz said.

'As I was heading down I started to have second thoughts nearly immediately, ' he said. "As much as you can do by phone and Zoom, it's not the same as being here".

The revelation drew immediate criticism from Democrats and Republicans in Texas and beyond as Cruz, a key ally of former US president Donald Trump, contemplates the possibility of a second presidential run.

"Don't Mess With Texas", an anti-littering slogan that is now seen as a declaration of independent identity and Texas swagger didn't stand a chance against Mother Nature, messing with which global warming experts say is what has caused havoc in the hydrocarbon-rich state.

Utility officials said limited rolling blackouts were still possible and a boil water order was issued for 7 million residents in Texas, the nation's second largest state, after record low temperatures damaged infrastructure and froze pipes.

President Biden declared a national emergency in Texas last Sunday and directed the Federal Emergency Management Agency to send 60 generators with fuel to critical sites like hospitals and nursing homes along with 729,000 liters of water, more than 10,000 wool blankets, 50,000 cotton blankets and 225,000 meals, according to Homeland Security Advisor Liz Sherwood-Randall.
