Lyin’ Ted Cruz Admits He Only Cut Mexico Trip Short Because He Saw The “Firestorm” On Twitter [VIDEO]

Houston’s CBS News affiliate reports:

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is taking heat after flying to Cancun as his home state suffers through a deadly winter storm crisis. He arrived back in Houston Thursday to a political storm.

A handful of protesters with signs were waiting to greet Cruz outside his Houston home. He was roasted on social media once photos of him on an airplane started to circulate. Cruz admitted he flew to Cancun but said he was only staying overnight.

KHOU 11 confirmed that he was originally scheduled to return with his family this weekend but decided to cut the trip short after the uproar. An AP source with knowledge of the situation earlier said the trip was “long-planned.”
