ALAS: This Ted Cruz tweet is obviously too good to be true

Cruz has been a trending topic on social media since photos of him heading out of the country went viral on Feb. 17, and a recent statement just placed him in an even deeper hole.

The phrase “So I Went To Cancun” began trending late Sunday night after Vox reporter Aaron Rupar brought attention to a statement Cruz’s office gave over the weekend to “Face The Nation” regarding his trip.

“Before the storms hit, Senator Cruz spoke with a meteorologist about the seriousness of the projected storms,” according to the statement. “Senator Cruz connected the meteorologist to Governor Abbott, and warned Texans early on to take the storm seriously.”

It didn’t take long for people to call out Cruz for his “fake compassion,” claiming he only handed out water and food in Texas as a way to make himself look better for a photo-op.

The memes and GIFs certainly didn’t stop there.

Politico’s Daniel Lippman reports that United Airlines is investigating how internal records of Cruz’s amended travel plans ended up in the hands of journalists last week.
