Ted Cruz’s tweets about power outages in California seem really silly right now

Twitter has proven how wrong we are. It turns out that many politicians are fools who much prefer to casually send a tweet that would allow their foolish colleagues to have a grim laugh rather than show an ounce of compassion.

WHAT IS HAPPENING?: Texas is in an electrical emergency, here’s why

When California was hit by power outages in the summer, the office of the governor of california, tweeted for Californians to do what they can to conserve energy and try to avoid disastrous statewide power outages.

Seems familiar?

Instead of amplifying the tweet or offering thoughts and prayers or even just sitting still, Texas Senator Ted Cruz thought it would be a perfect opportunity to poke fun at American citizens facing a crisis.


“California is now unable to perform even the basic functions of civilization, such as having reliable electricity. Biden / Harris / AOC want to make CA’s failing energy policy the norm nationwide. Hope you don’t like air conditioning! Cruz tweeted condescendingly.

This tweet does nothing to warm up the 4 million Texans currently without electricity, including 1.4 million in Cruz’s hometown of Houston.


A few months after making fun of California, Cruz continued to pile up, tweet Democrats’ campaign slogan should be, “If you want to live without air conditioning, vote Democrat.” When the actor of “Rescue Me” Steven Pasquale pointed out to Cruz that the real problem was climate change, Cruz took it up a notch.

“An angry Lefty actor thinks California is the only place Summer is. It’s hot everywhere – try Texas every summer – but the rest of the country doesn’t have such a dysfunctional state government that you can’t turn on the lights or run the air conditioning. It is a political failure of the Democrats.

To Cruz’s credit, he didn’t try to defend the tweets this week. Tuesday night he responded to the critics by tweeting, “I have no defense. A blizzard hits Texas and our state shuts down. Not good. Stay safe!”

Cruz was certainly not the only one to laugh at the misfortune of California.

After Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti urged his constituents to conserve energy during blackouts, US Representative Dan Crenshaw from Houston found time to send a joke on Twitter: “Alexa, watch me what happens when you let the democrats control energy policy.

In 2019, Texas Senator John Cornyn tweeted an article from satirical site The Babylon Bee with the headline “Texas Attracts Jobs Far From California With Promises Of Electricity.”

Hilarious, guys. When you are done with your online comedy game, is there anything you can do about the Texas power grid now?
