CNN's Lemon Blows Up Over Sen. Cruz's Quick Trip
Texas is in crisis and many families regardless of financial status are freezing especially with the power being on the fritz. Senator Ted Cruz did what any father would and gave his family a much-needed reprieve from the elements by flying them down to Cancun. CNN's Don Lemon couldn't handle this and went on a long rant, complaining about how the Senator would care for his family in Texas's time of need.
LEMON: So, this is what Ted Cruz could have done, right, because we all have messed up before. And when you truly apologize, people accept it or not. But if you do it, you know, you do it and it’s heartfelt, you do it. This is what would have shown leadership though, okay? For one thing, he could’ve apologized. He didn't. He just said, I screwed up. He didn't really apologize. Instead, he went right on to Fox News, of course. Fox News to make excuses. Oh, you can be a dad and a Senator at the same time, Senator. I don't know what all of the uproar is about. Really? He could have gotten off that plane from Cancun because it was the daytime and he could’ve gone right out into the community to help.

Cruz realized it was a mistake and was only gone for a day.
"As much as you can do by phone and Zoom, it's not the same as being here. And so, I returned this afternoon and I'm here working to make sure that we do everything we can to get the power turned on," Cruz admitted.
Lemon spent about 13 minutes berating Senator Cruz, Despite the fact that Cruz came right back, leaving his family behind just to do what he can for Texans. Lemon felt this was unacceptable and practically demanded Cruz fix this problem by himself without any time off. But Cruz was not going away for good, he was taking weekends away with his family. Even civil servants get weekends off and should be able to take of their families.
