A Brutal Billboard Awaited Ted Cruz Just Outside His Home In Texas

558 points

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s approval ratings dropped following his trip to sunny Cancun, Mexico. At the same time that Cruz boarded his flight, his constituents suffered at home from the historic weather crisis that left them without power and water. Cruz rushed back to Texas once he was caught in photos bailing on his constituents. But the Texas Republican has been loathed for a long time now, even by former House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), who wants Cruz to go fuck himself.

Cruz’s worst moment that will likely be recorded in history books was his part in inciting the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol that took five lives and caused millions of dollars in damages. At least six of Cruz’s former aides have expressed their absolute disgust at the actions of their former boss, according to New York Magazine’s Intelligencer.

Cruz went to bat for former president Donald Trump while tearing at the very fabric of our democracy. It was just hours after the MAGA rioters tore through the Capitol that Cruz voted to throw out electoral votes from states that voted for Joe Biden. And he did this for a mentally ill, twice impeached, one-term president. For one unstable man, Cruz was willing to throw our democracy into the shitter.

So, the group Really American is outside Cruz’s home with a brutal message for the Texas Republican. It’s just one word: traitor.

The group also smacked Cruz for his vacation in Cancun.

Cruz’s approval rating plummeted by double digits after he bailed on his constituents. Cruz looked the other way after Donald Trump called his wife ugly and accused his Cuban-born father of being part of a supposed conspiracy that killed John F. Kennedy. Cruz looked the other way after so many of Trump’s transgressions and misdeeds. But this time, Cruz didn’t merely look away to ignore another vile act from the former president. Ted Cruz actually took part in it by spreading the big lie that led to the violent insurrection.
