Ted Cruz asks Houston cops to help him get out of airport as Texans rage over Cancun trip: report

Source: Raw Story

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is flying home amid widespread outrage over his decision to fly to Cancun while millions of his residents are freezing amid mass power outages.

Now ABC News reporter Ben Siegel brings word that Cruz's staff reached out to the Houston Police Department to see if they could supply personnel to help the senator make his way out of Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport.

"Cruz's staff contacted HPD personnel at IAH on Wednesday... and requested assistance upon the Senator's arrival at the airport," Siegel reports. "HPD officers monitored his movements through the terminal."

It is unclear about what assistance Cruz needs to get out of the airport, although his trip to Cancun in the midst of a statewide crisis has outraged many Texas residents who want their elected officials to be working full time to restore power and provide relief.

1. He knows he'll be unmercifully harassed.

“ANTIFA” of course.

2. The Houston Cops have their hands full... perhaps the proud boys can be his entourage...

...I'm guessing he has a few of them on speed dial.

4. Bet he's still wearing that perplexed expression

second only to Tucker's in terms of phoniness and punchability.

"I dunno what they're mad at me for! This is clearly the fault of liberals and democrats!" Ted snivels as he takes another sip of his martini.

9. Ding Ding Ding

Hurry to the airport, local TV. Maybe others can bring rotten vegetables, dead cats, just like in Huckleberry Finn?

And expect supporters to welcome him with open hearts, and signs denouncing librul media and antifa...

8. That's the second time in only a few weeks Cruz needed police protection from an angry mob.

Luckily, this time no Houston cops were injured or killed as a result of Ted's ill-advised actions, unlike the Capitol assault.

12. Doesn't owning guns solve almost every little problem in life?

Like a self-reliant Texan, he should have stayed home and shot at the frozen water pipes.

14. Cruz need police protection from his "patriots" but the lawmakers at the Federal Capitol,

not so much.

And I'm sure Houston Police have better things to do, like assist people without heat or water to safety shelters, rather than protect that slimy little fucking rat.
