Houston police chief calls Ted Cruz’s Cancun trip ‘a little tone-deaf’

Houston’s police chief criticized Ted Cruz’s Caribbean jaunt, after the senator requested a police escort at the airport as he returned to storm-ravaged Texas in the face of criticism for his ill-timed vacation.

“I think it’s a little tone-deaf,” Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said in an interview with Wolf Blitzer on CNN Thursday night. “And sometimes you got to teach your kids the word ‘no’ and this probably would have been a good time to tell your kids ‘no, we’re blessed, but we have to wait till we get Texas on our feet.’”

“We’ve all made poor choices. That’s for him to explain,” added Acevedo, who has been a frequent critic of Cruz.

Cruz faced severe backlash this week after jet-setting to Cancun, where the high temperature was a balmy 84 degrees, as millions of Texans were left without power or running water, and eventually, cut his trip short Thursday, returning to the Lone Star State.
