'American hero' leaks Heidi Cruz text messages on Cancun trip to the NYT

Text messages reportedly sent by Heidi Cruz as she planned a Cancun getaway with her husband, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) were leaked to The New York Times.

"Text messages sent from Ms. Cruz to friends and Houston neighbors on Wednesday revealed a hastily planned trip. Their house was 'FREEZING,' as Ms. Cruz put it — and she proposed a getaway until Sunday. Ms. Cruz invited others to join them at the Ritz-Carlton in Cancún, where they had stayed "many times," noting the room price this week ($309 per night) and its good security. The text messages were provided to The New York Times and confirmed by a second person on the thread, who declined to be identified because of the private nature of the texts," the newspaper reported.

Cruz is a managing director at Goldman Sachs.

44. His supporters, and all their fellow travelers, don't need cover stories they can believe in.

All they want is the barest minimum of plausibility. "OK, for the sake of argument, let's say that your explanation holds water in some version of reality. Good enough?"

11. Cruz has already begun to believe his bs..

For a moment, when his aides told him how bad the “optics” were, Cruz recognized his mistake. But as he proposed and now repeats his absurd justification, he begins to believe it. For Ted, those self serving lies are passing through the lie/truth brain barrier into the realm of absolute certainty, right about...now.

Expect a lifetime of full throated defense on the one hand, and a ‘victim of cancel culture’ lamentation on the other.

Hilarious to read that their "friends" and neighbors are dropping dimes on them right and left!

It away because this year’s been so hard on his children. “They just wanted to go somewhere.” So, can all the other kids that have had a tough year go to the Ritz Carlton in Cancun? Jeez.

34. "They just wanted to go somewhere." FFS

We ALL want to go somewhere -but don't because" a) We are in a pandemic. b) The people in Texas are stuck and c) many can't afford to just jump on a plane to someplace sunny and warm. What an entitled prick!

Of course not....but when he "called her ugly" if he had specified that he meant ugly ON THE INSIDE, he would have been closer to 'right' than he's ever been before.
