The story keeps getting worse for Cruz (NYT gets Ms. Cruz texts)



NYT has texts messages Heidi Cruz sent to friends and Houston neighbors.

Their house was "FREEZING" — and she proposed a Sunday return. Cruz invited others to join them at the Ritz-Carlton in Cancún ($309 per night), where they had stayed "many times."





EDIT: From the article

Text messages sent by his wife revealed a hastily planned trip away from their “FREEZING” family home.


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.

Both are sociopaths, one is dumb, the other is smart.

They should be worried about us expelling their violent and parasitic asses, not us worrying about them seceding.

They can install Trump as their emperor if they like, too. We'll take the sane refugees.

has to support the family. His salary is way too small. She makes a lot of money.
This was from a widely reported story a couple of years ago.

Just incredibly stupid! And he can't blame anyone but himself (well, maybe a family member or the family pet...
or a friend?) ... I love that it's self-inflicted! What an idiot!

Also, this is simple to understand and those citizens/constituents to a person will see the mistake clearly. Who's going to defend him? It's not partisan! Most everyone will be offended, disgusted and pissed!

because a pre-planned trip to Cancun was cancelled by the weather. But they're aged 10 and 13 -- it's not as though he and his wife would have been helping to chaperone a handful of high-schoolers.

He's finally gotten around to admitting he made a mistake -- we ALL make mistakes. But there are mistakes (such a dropping a baseball when the bases are loaded), and then there are mistakes (such as trying to steal a base when the bases are loaded).
