Ted Cruz: The Media is Obsessed With Me Because They’re Suffering From Trump Withdrawal
When it was revealed that Ted Cruz was going on a tropical vacation while people in Texas was suffering, he told a series of lies. One of those lies was that he was just chaperoning his daughters down to Cancun and returning the next day. This was quickly disproven when it was found that Cruz had initially booked his return flight for days later.
Still, this is the story that Cruz and Conservative media are going with. Last night the GOP lawmaker appeared on Sean Hannity’s show for some well needed cover. During the segment, Cruz told the Fox host that the media is obsessed with him because they miss Trump.
Hannity bought into Cruz’s lie hook, line and sinker. The Fox host said, “You dropped off your daughters in Mexico, you came home in a day, probably less than a day.”
The host continued, “You’re like 24/7, ’cause you dropped somebody off and you came back home. I still think you can be a father and senator at the same tie. Where’s the proportionality from the mob and the media?”

“I think the media is suffering from Trump withdrawal, where they’ve attacked Trump every day for four years, they don’t know what to do, so they obsessed over my taking my girls to the beach.”
