In the midst of what he calls “a humanitarian crisis,” Senator Ted Cruz is taking a woe-is-me approach to the situation at the border. The Texas Republican made an overnight (and over-the-top) trip to the Rio Grande this morning. He then complained on Twitter that he was yelled at and heckled by cartel members.

Reactions to the video ranged from horrified to hilarious.

Huffington Post writes that while “Right-wing media hailed the videos,”numerous Twitter users — including former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) — argued that Cruz was fear-mongering about migrants trying to cross the border… Some said that the surreal, documentary-style feel of the footage was reminiscent of a ‘Saturday Night Live’ sketch.”

Cruz’s last trip to Mexico, during the Texas freeze, didn’t do him any favors either.
