Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said his wife is furious that “paparazzi” snapped shots of her while she vacationed on a beach in Cancun.
Cruz and his wife planned last week to take their daughters on a hastily planned trip to Cancun while Texas weathered a severe winter storm that caused widespread power outages across the state. The furor over the Texas senator’s departure while his state is in crisis cut Cruz’s vacation short, though his wife and daughters stayed at the popular vacation destination.
As the outcry erupted around Cruz, a photojournalist captured footage of his wife on the beach “in her bikini,” Cruz said on a Tuesday episode of the podcast “Ruthless.”
“It was really creepy,” Cruz began, referring to a photographer snapping a photo of the Cruz family dog Snowflake in the window of their Texas home. “Even more creepy, frankly, is paparazzi went down to the beach and took pictures of Heidi in her bikini.”
