Cruz also referred to photographs of his family’s pet dog, called Snowflake, in recent days, apparently left at home while his owners fled Mexico.
“I spend too much time on Twitter, so I see that I literally fed the snowflakes to the wolves,” Cruz said, explaining that the dog was accompanied by a parent, “and in fact the heat and energy are back.”
Cruz said it was “very creepy” to capture a picture of a reporter with his dog looking bad out the window, and even more creepy was his photograph of his wife Heidi on the beach in his “bikini” paparazzi.
– I’ll tell you he’s angry. The rest is all right, ”Cruz said, adding,“ Heidi smokes hot, so I looked at the pictures and said, ‘Man, you look really good. “
During the 2016 Republican presidential election, then-candidate Donald Trump memorably threatened to “spill the bean” on Heidi Cruz and tweet a flattering photo of her next to a bright picture of his wife, Melania. The senator condemned the posts at the time, but after being elected president, he became one of Trump’s fiercest defenders in Congress.
On Tuesday, Cruz said his wife was also “angry enough” that messages from The New York Times leaked from a group text showing that their house was sorry for the “PRAGUE” temperature and was referring to an escape to the Ritz-Carlton in Cancun.
Cruz said his wife went over to a neighbor’s house yesterday, sort of going through the messages. “We have some Republicans who are neighbors, but we also have many Democrats,” he said.
Even on our streets, there were those who put up Beto signs, which I think was a little rough, ”Cruz said, referring to former Democrat Beto O’Rourke’s 2018 re-election race.
“You know, I didn’t like to have a victory party in their yard when we won,” he said.
In another interview Tuesday with Hugh Hewitt, the Conservative Radio presenter, Cruz admitted he was traveling to Cancun and was hellishly silent, but again trying to put his children at the center of the debate.
“My kids wanted to get out of there. We had two days without electricity, ”he said. “And Heidi and I said yes, and we took them to the beach.” And in retrospect, it was obviously a mistake. And since then, the media seems completely fixed. “
Under pressure from either him or his wife ever considering the harmful optics of the trip, Cruz said, “I definitely remembered looking bad and being criticized by people”.
But “I’m a father at the same time,” he said. – And our daughters are 10 and 12 years old. I’m on the road all the time.
Cruz said it was one of her two daughters and friends who initially “told us and the friend’s parents,“ Listen, why are we staying here? Why don’t we go somewhere where there is electricity and no frost?
He and his wife simply “wanted to be good parents” when they lit up the vacation in green, ”Cruz said.
“At the time, I was trying to take care of my family, to take care of my kids, what the Texas people were doing all over the state.”
