      Jajaja

    3. John A

      It doesn't matter if he booked his flight back home, damage is already done and now we know who really is this man. Texas should be his priority , wrong, priority means sun and good time for Mr Cruz.

    4. Lord Gilbert

      Not to defend Ted Cruz but why is Jimmy Kimmel acting like he wouldn’t do the exact same thing

    5. Chaim Salamon

      Dear Jimmy. Please stop the baseless use of the name Karen to label bad women. It is so insulting to so many Karens. Good Karens. I know of 3 that are model citizens in this terrible time. They happen to love your stance on Trump too. You owe a correction because of so many jokes‬ at their expense. It's not too late. We still love you

    6. T M

      Ted Cruz is what you get if the smell of cat piss had a face

    7. Lucrecia Marin

      I guess he could

    8. Jason Eaton

      Hes not Texan nor born in America.. people in Texas. Smh

    9. Dorothy Landry

      JESUS IS KING. REPENT AND BE SAVED.

    10. TheAureliac

      The image of Cruz slurping noodles through that ratty beard will linger far too long. Nice of Jimmy to award Stacy a participation trophy for attempting to speak despite the cold.

    11. Rick Saunders

      So what Ted is a Senator Not the govonor Govonor run the state Not a senator The dems headed to Hawaii to dethrone Trump While people suffered

    12. Andre Barnes

    14. Gucci

      Yeah and biden rejected a bill a week before the polar vortex hit denying texas to go over the epas power grid limit and then forced them to outsource power from other states for a x6000 increase from 18$a MWHr to 3000$a MWHr and i dont pick politicians or any parties side they both are bad...

    15. Mike Hunt

      He was there for how many hours?

    16. jdtractor man

    18. Dan S

    19. Danny Camacho

      Why does this comedian talking about politicians? Looks like another dead hollyweird clown to me

    20. Garth Deers

      Siri, play Cancun by Playboi Carti

    21. Abdelatif Ardone

      What a disgusting human being

    22. jian wang

    23. Ring A. Leaveo

    26. Matthew Alkman

      just looking at comments, its a special kind of stupid to follow Kimmel and comment.

    27. Suru Dog

      Ted Cruz is a pathetic. Texans deserve better.. will they elect a better candidate.

    28. Jorge Gomez

      Lots of subliminal comments and a lot of agenda programming 👍 nice job jimmy

    29. Richard S

      Who cares

    30. kirtikumar chandrawanshi

      This shows the character of corrupted politician in America and look how much they care about you and the country

    31. Steven Breach

      It doesn't matter.The terminally stupid will still vote for him.

    32. Lenny C

      Ted Cruz you're still cruising along perfect crew cut

    33. Lenny C

      Giuliani only joking anything for attention bend over more

    34. Lenny C

      Golfer Wii should go wee-wee in a corner somewhere

    35. B S

      While Pelosi jaunts of to Italy with family on a military transport. Kimmel sucks.

    36. ShadySnake

      Talk shows are dead lol

    37. David Phongsavanh

      I’m surprised he’s not in a private plane with a job title like that..

    38. FHHS-NY Friends

      on MSNBC they said many times Oh he's a smart guy he went to Ivy League schools He s No Dummy ...Oh Yeah Bull Sqwaut !! Dumbest morn ever to walk the earth................ Real-life Gomer Fricken Pyle!!

    39. Tucson Vic

      I'm still laughing, I even woke up my son laughing so hard he came out of his room and said "really mom"? Then I let him watch this video, it was then he understood. Teddy Cruz even left his little poodle home in a freezing house I guess it's not just Democrats he hates, he hates his little dog too. He needs more lie lesson's from diaper Don, that is if he can peel his lips off of Donny's butt.

    40. Shireen Hakim

      Don't insult snakes

    41. Arash Moha

      Poppit of democrats. 😂 Shame on you lier.

    42. lostboyiii

      Jimmy Kimmel such a chump! So negative! Can’t stand this whining liberal!

    43. RomanceLoverGirl

      Loved how he blamed it on his kids, dad of the year!

    44. The Eclectic Taurus

      I saw the title and clicked. 😂

    45. dankccz

      Ted cruz is the words he is hipo ipo

    46. Velo1010

      Jimmy “The Liberal Puke” forgot to tell his lapdogs what Cruz did wasn’t wrong. Unlike those liberal politicians last year, he never went around telling people to stay home and not travel. As a matter of fact where I live in Texas the power was out in many parts of the city so people left their homes to stay at hotels or with friends and family.

    47. Terri Venegas

      IM TIRED OF SEEING THIS WHO CARES IF HE WENT ON VACATION ,WHAT DO PPL EXPACT ,HE COULDNT PUT A STOP TO THE WINTER STORM THAT WE HAD ,PPL ARE SO STUPID

    48. Tinkerbellstune

      Mitch McConnells throat pouch🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    49. Jane Cerrone

      He is one selfish SOB. He should step down. How can he show his face in public? He should be embarressed and step down. If I were a Texan I would be livid.

    50. Jeanmarie Todd

      If you think being a good parent means flying to Mexico whenever your kids ask, you need a new parenting handbook.

      1. Betty Robb

        Especially during a Pandemic. 🤯

      2. Tee m

        Exactly 😂

      3. Old Rusty Hog

        Makes you wonder how they would have reacted if he said no were not going.🤔🤔

    51. J Randall

      America: - privatize the gains - socialize the losses

    52. Kendra Degraffreed

      Love me some Jimmy kimmel. Glad he called this guy out. I pray the people remember this when it's time to vote again.

    53. José Luis Nieto Enríquez

      Who would've thought that Trump supporters/rioters would be so good for mexican tourism?

    54. Yvette Valencia

      Y que querían que también Ted cruz se muriera de frío ? Yo también lo hubiera hecho,como la hacen de borrachito. Pero cómo es hispano le llovieron críticas. Mejor cállense,

    55. The Blue Earthling Extraterrestrial

    56. Loral Oral

      🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑🐑

    57. Rusto

      Ted is the reason I hate our voter suppression in Texas. We get garbage like him

    58. Steffani

      Messing up Dinesh D'Souza's name is epic. Like, some guy... It's awesome.

    59. David Ruiz

      Cold blooded creatures dont do well in cold conditions.

    60. Paul Phelps

      If your in California- 18 days left to sign Newsom recall!!

    61. Nhan Nguyen

      Gavin Newsom is facing recall election. Andrew Cuomo covered up of covid deaths in nursing home. Media: lets give them a pass. Ted's Mexico trip. Media: I am going to end this man career. 😂

    62. Malcolm X

      Cruz is Canadian what did you expect they all go South when the Weather Goes Bad.... But also he is one of the Elite !!! Above the Law and Repercussion so "" Silence the Herd "" ...What's that Movie where the Criminal use the Children as Scapegoats and Protections from the Bullets????

    63. Oleduddydawg 5

      Jimmy, It is weasels on a plane.

    64. James Irwin

      Ted Cruz is so nearly universally disliked by the Congress members, even the former ones like John Boehner; that he would really have done us all a favor by just moving permanently to Cancun!

    65. Suddenly Possible

      Shame 0n Ted Cruz!!!!!! S0 bad!!!!!!!!

    66. Peter Cox

      What did you do JIMMY for Texas why don’t you tell me get out of here

    67. Peter Cox

      And all this picture that you show me that is happening in Texas it’s all Senator Ted Cruz fall correct I see an arm is the President Trump was still president it would be his fault to correct I just wanna make sure is that what you’re saying

    68. jack rider

      I don't get it. As a Texas latino myself and knowing how our infrastructure works wtf was he gonna change by staying here? With a few phone calls alone he could probably call in for help even while gone but being here I'm not expecting every politician to know how to fix power lines or pipes quicker than when a storm is to hit the way this one did. I don't care much for him but It all seems like cheap shots to me. How about helping us by actually helping us instead of playing the blame game.

    69. Tom Storm

      LOL, perfect. Snake on the plane.

    70. LHHSh H

      Both senators left Texas when the power was out

    71. Tom Running

      This just shows taxpayers what kind of useless wall they sold us.

    72. LHHSh H

      Both Tx senators left Texas with TX in cold

    73. K M

      don't people have to quarantine when they return to USA? So why isn't Cuz in quarantine ? instead, he is out placing water into peoples trucks and cars

    74. Kathy Botard

      A bunch of liberal people? who knew. gads you people are sad.

    75. Stacie Stacie

      Hey, remember the days before this leadership vacuum? When leaders lead? Like when President Obama visited states after the devastating hurricane. Party rhetoric was pushed aside even by Chris Christie, former Governor of New Jersey? Oh, the yesterday years!!!

    76. Kim Kanakis in Exile

      Hmmmmmmm......not so sure just how much Senator Cruz can influence a ERSATZ issue. I'd probably bug out too....if there were remote access for Zoom or Webex. No wait....yeah I'm in exile in L.A. (Lower Arkansas) and I did bug out; to warmer safer geo, and worked remotely....

    77. nibs Sand

      Oh ted dear I think we left cancun so fast we forgot our beach chairs sitting on the beach with our cocktails Oh dont worry dear we can get new ones next month we will go back when this all blows over but dear weren,t those chairs expensive yes but not when I bill them to the taxpayers.

    78. Afrique D'Amy

      He really wants me to believe he packed all that for a day and a half?

    79. vijay thomas

      ARE CUBANS PROUD OF THIS MAN, HE IS A WEAK MISCREANT, THAT DOES THINGS THAT FLIES IN THE FACE OF ALL HIS CONSTITUENTS RICH PEOPLE WHO BACK HIM, WHY, WITH THEIR MONEY ...? TOTALLY UNABASHEDLY TOO. DO WE KNOW THE TEMPERAMENT OF SUCH A MAN WHO PROBABLY HAS GENES BORROWED FROM SOME CRIMINAL ANCESTRY IN THE PAST ...I WONER ABOUT THAT ...? HIS BEHAVIOUR TO SHOUT HIS MOUTH OFF AND THEN REALISE HIS FOLLY, SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT HIM, AND HIS ANCESTRY TOO ...? SAD PERSON, I PITY HIS FAMILY AND HIS CHILDREN, WHO HE DISMISSES SO READILY TOO?

    80. David Mauldin

      I think I'll take Ted Cruz's political ideas and politics, it is those policies that is causing Californians to flock to Texas. Put that in your Late Night pipe and smoke it.

    81. CLARENCE WILLIAMS

      Enough already. This wasn't really Ted Cruz and his family. It was an acting troupe of dark-skinned Black Lives Matter sympathizers in white makeup pretending to be Cruz and his family. Ask Donald Trump if you don't believe me.

    82. Luke Bingus

      LMFAOOOO as if Kimmel isn't any less of a smug elite (Hate Ted Cruz btw)

    83. justin bradford

      Is Ted Cruz supposed to fix the power grid and salt the roads Weasel Jimmy Kimmel couldn’t do anything to help neither if so what did he do If Jimmy Kimmel wants to do something try being funny once and get a real show with real laughing people not one that only cats are watching because their owners are asleep

    84. Linda Pettitt

      Stupid . Yeah he went to Mexico but your governor killed 16,000 elderly people. Talk about him you stupid waste of space.

    85. don wilson

      The truth be known Teddy changed his travel plans to help a poor Mexican wife wasn’t able to visit her husband who bing held in quarantine in the US because Trump’s Great Wall prevented her crossing the border. So being the Good Samaritan that he is sacrificed his vacation to help her. El Chapo said thanks.

    86. Vee EE

      Jimmy wipes the floor all by himself ,he's an idiot.

    87. Pascal Mercedes

      Anyone finds the irony in Ted Cruz crossing the border for a better future for the kids?

    88. Shang Hunter

      Now Fled Cruz is just pictured scrolling through his phone "WHILE WORKING on the floor" This disrespectful human just can't "get right". I just feel sorry for any and all pets that may reside with him.

    89. David Cisneros

      Jimmy what do you do to help those in need??!!.....cozy in your Hollywood house. You have the power and money to help those in need. F you Jimmy, you used to be entertaining.

    90. Frances

      Maybe Texas will turn blue 💙

    91. Jerome FitzRoy

      You get what you voted for

    92. Zakare

      My country too is facing this sort of crisis right now... politicians with no morals controlling a population of sheeps.

    93. Darlene Michuk

      Hey Cruzer's G'mornin' Must ask you did people all just forget his previous apology when he was camped out on the beach sun tanning all while the place being closed for the rest of the public? Private beach maybe? In Canada here, only 12pm ( that is Noontime ) Are not Politicians 'sposed to be public servants? Well, I think he has got that pretty well covered huh?

    94. Robert Griffin

      Anybody remember Ted's little campaign ditty a few years ago? "If you wanna run in Texas, ya must be a cowardly man. When it's cold outside, abandon toughness, and flee to the sun and sand. If they catch ya in the act, and if they think you're sus. Be a yellerbelly, blame your daughters, and throw them under the bus."

      1. Robert Griffin

        Ted's a coward. That's my point, but hey, when he got back to Tx, he raised $2m for the people he represents rather than blaming his own daughters for his little trip... Oh wait, no, that wasn't him. A Representative from New York did his job for him and represented my state a hell of a lot better than that little weasel ever could. So what's dear old Teddy bear been doing for my state over the past week other than making a pathetic attempt to cover his own hind parts? I'll give you a hint. Starts with an n and ends with othing. Oh, Almost forgot! Good ol boy Greg Abbot's blaming windmills and under the assumption that folks don't know how renewable energy works rather than admitting that nobody winterized our equipment, sooooo... Yay Greg, I guess?

      2. someone

        I don't see your point, he is not the executive branch of government but legislative......... but please explain

    95. Amanda Tan

      The extra-large extra-small exuberant cover wessely store because june occasionally clip out a icky parsnip. new, highfalutin step-grandmother

    96. Jonatc87

      How did he think he could get away with this? Last four years of criminal presidency.

    97. Sid Phyllis

      The crowd wasn’t a fan of that bazinga joke... but I thought it was funny... ha ha... bazinga...

    98. Karen Makowski

      So what. The "illigitimate" so called president ignored them and never visited or sent any help.

    99. Chip Chipperson

      Meanwhile the governor of New York murdered thousands of old people. But naaaah that's mot news.

    100. Donna Garriott

      So buddy Trump doesn't want the Mexicans over here yet Cruz goes across the boarder to Mexico the wall didn't keep Cruz out of Mexico so how in the hell do you think it's going to keep the Mexicans out a waste of 💰
