Ted Cruz Gets Busted For Refusing To Wear Mask On Flight

Republican senator and closeted porn fiend Ted Cruz was spotted Sunday completely breaking the rules on an American Airlines flight, not wearing a mask despite the airline’s strict face covering requirement. The incident was photographed and posted on Twitter, drawing defensive denials from Cruz’ spokespeople and a stern warning from American Airlines.

The image above, posted Sunday, is from the Twitter account of Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee employee Hosseh Enad (who insists the photo is not his, and was fed to him anonymously). “Captured today at 10:45am — @TedCruz on a commercial flight, refusing to wear a mask,” Enad tweeted.

In another tweet with more incrimination mask-less evidence, Enad says “here’s a photo of him sitting outside the gate,” and adds that “For those trying to argue that he was drinking, it’s not hard to have a mask on and undo one side to take a sip then put it back on. Most people take their time drinking coffee.”

According to the New York Post, American Airlines says they issued Cruz a warning after discovering these social media accounts. “As we do in all instances like these, we reviewed the details of the matter, and while our policy does not apply while eating or drinking, we have reached out to Sen. Cruz to affirm the importance of this policy as part of our commitment to protecting the health and safety of the traveling public,” an American Airlines spokesperson said in a statement.

Playing the game “Where in the World Was Ted Cruz on Sunday?,” we can deduce that he was likely flying from an event the previous day in Granbury, TX for state house candidate Jon Francis. “Not any visible masks and not really any social distancing, all at an indoor event,” tweeted one campaign watchdog above. Texas is now surpassing 10,000 COVID-19 hospitalizations per day, and the state’s hospitals are running out of beds. Cruz has already been quarantined twice after interactions with people who’d tested positive.

It’s surprising that Ted Cruz would refuse to wear a mask, considering how handily it would cover up his expressions that always look like he just accidentally sharted.
