    Ms. Chelsea Timmons, Delivery Driver, presented a welcomed thank you to Doug Condon and Nina Richardson via inviting Ms. Timmons into their home for (5) days in Austin, Texas in order for Ms. Timmons to survive the Texas freeze after her car slid off the road leaving her stranded. CNN posted details live on their website. This is exactly the type of data that I would have expected Senator Ted Cruz to forward to FEMA requesting help immediately for the State of Texas in🕯️of the deadly and none deadly crisis that was paralyzing the State of Texas😨. What about the constituents of Texas? 🇺🇸

    Senator Cruz has nothing to apologize for. Senators are not responsible for State of Emergency. What could he have done? Cruz can still raise money for Texas and Yes he could do it while in Cancun.


    This Man is a Disgrace and a disgusting Human... Get this Moron out of Office...

    1st mistake was apologizing. He should know better. So he went to Cancun. Big deal. He wasn’t going to change the weather. Career wise he should’ve stayed for the worthless photo ops. That’s what politicians do. People buy into that crap.

    If all the fathers choose to put their families first what kind of man are they really when others are in dire need. All the lineman, emergency responder and others risking their lives to help others. He is a liar and self serving. His only regret is that he got caught. And now we know.

    Every country deserves the leaders it has chosen. Love thy neighbor as thyself? Bigotry in the Bible belt is unmasked again. Did you ever believe he has empathy for or cares for anyone but himself? I think he's even worse and more dangerous than the 'Chosen One' who is brooding over revenge in Mar-a-Lago.

    Pay attention to his speech pattern... why does he say AS A LEADER YOU NEED TO BE THERE ??? He is basically saying that he recognizes he should of shown COGNITIVE EMPATHY. He doesn’t say “I needed to be there” bcuz he simply doesn’t care sadly.

    Does it take to have a M.A. or PhD. for a simple self-thought: " If I leave to Cancun, it might cause controversy cuze my state is in crisis. Nah, I better stay. Honey, you go with the girls while I stay back home. Someone might spot us on the plane or in Cancun which might anger people. "

    Good for him! Where should he have taken his family NY? While all the lower 48 are getting slammed with snow! He needs to take care of his family first! Cruz doesn’t need to be in Texas to help people, do you people understand they have no water or electricity so how the hell is he supposed to help you! Geez .. people have nothing better to report .. let’s hear how your news station is helping anyone besides causing drama with this ridiculous story. Grow up and please report something that’s going to better my life!

    Why? If I had the money and time, I would of left too. Was he supposed to stay and shovel snow on the roads?

    • Fodder4Hire

      @Kevin Wright never said you were, it's not about wether he could've or not. Which btw he clearly wasn't gonna do anything, he got caught. It's about the fact that he's an elected PUBLIC servant and your place as a public servant is with your constituents. He bailed. He left when he shouldn't have. Fact still stands that while he was in that trip other government officials have done more for Texas than anything he "might've" done in Cancun. Pfft "working" in cancun. What a joke.

    • Kevin Wright
      Kevin Wright

      @Fodder4Hire anything he could of have done from his house on his phone he could of done from Mexico. And no I’m not I republican.

    • Fodder4Hire

      You're blind if you don't see how wrong it is for a senator to leave his constituents to suffer and literally die while he lives it up in cancun. It was a state of emergency and he fled.

    Jesus Christ saves from sin. Romans 3: 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Hebrews 9: 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Isaiah 64: 6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. Revelation 21: 8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Romans 5: 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. John 3: 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 14: 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Romans 10: 9-10. That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Jesus said John 5: 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. 1John 5: 10-13 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. Ephesians 2: 8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Romans 8: 1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 1 Corinthians 15: 3-4 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 2 Corinthians 5: 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. ................................................................................................................................................................................................

    It's mind boggling that any Texan would continue to defend this piece of garbage. I can understand you not wanting to have a Democrat in charge, but that doesn't mean you have to tolerate this kind of absolutely horrible "representation".

    Of course he regrets it....he had to come home early. And if he had a sudden change of heart when he sat down on the plane then why didn't he just get the F*CK off the plane. That's what happens when even your own conscience can't even f*ck with you no more cuz you won't listen to it anyway. This shows just how out of touch the crud cruz family really is... ** Mrs Cruz: eeeww cold is for poor people...not our people.
