While appearing on Fox News to discuss the recent energy crisis in Texas, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) took a swipe at the media's "obsessed" coverage of his family's vacation to Cancun, Mexico.

"I think the media is suffering from Trump withdrawal where they've attacked Trump every day for four years," the senator said on Fox's "Hannity" program. "They don't know what to do. So they obsess over my taking my girls to the beach."

Cruz, who admitted after returning from the vacation early that it was a "mistake" to go, has fought back against the "paparazzi" for relentlessly stalking his wife and daughters on the Mexican beaches.

The senator suggested he was less annoyed with the media's coverage of his trip than he was of their unwillingness to cover what he believes are far more pressing issues of consequence to the American people.

"I've got to tell you, today, I asked Merrick Garland if he would open an investigation into Andrew Cuomo's shameful policies," Cruz told Hannity. "A senior Cuomo aide admitted they lied. They covered up the policies that sent COVID-positive people into nursing homes and may well have resulted in the deaths of thousands or tens of thousands. Merrick Garland wouldn't commit to investigate it. And the media won't even cover it."

Cruz also spent time in the interview warning that what happened in Texas could happen throughout the country if Democrats were successful in implementing their "Green New Deal" environmental framework.
