Didn’t he understand that his daughters were demanding a vacation from him?

Flying to another country to vacation with friends during a global pandemic would be grossly irresponsible even if Texas wasn’t in the midst of a major humanitarian crisis.

A good son wouldn’t have let Trump get away with blaming his dad for the JFK assassination. A good husband would have demanded an apology from the man who publicly mocked his wife’s appearance. It’s only a matter of time before Ted throws the family dog under the bus.

Come on Cruz daughters, tell him you want him to resign for being a traitorous asshole who has aligned himself with cop-killing, white supremacist terrorists.

It’s all part of the GOP members’ “family values and personal responsibility” playbook. Their first love is themselves, and their second love is power. When they mess up, it’s everyone else’s fault.

First they throw their spouses under the bus, then the kids, and then they work their way through the entire family tree. Don’t forget, some consider pets to be part of the family, too…
