If Sen. Ted Cruz swung by his crib at any point Sunday, he would’ve seen the brigade of standing musicians in sombreros … reminding him what he was missing in Mexico.
Somebody hired a mariachi band to swing by Ted’s Houston home yesterday, where the fellas were cranking out Mexican tunes from the sidewalk, quite loudly — with a crowd of neighbors and spectators forming around them and enjoying the vibes.
Unclear if Ted was around to take in the show himself — we know he’d been out and about, helping distribute supplies to Texans devastated by the winter storm … albeit, several days after first going to Cancun with his family.
As for who was responsible for this mariachi thing … it appears to be the doing of a guy named Adam Jama of Carrollton, TX — who started a GoFundMe page for the effort.
He writes, “Senator Cruz, being an amazing dad, dropped off his family in Cancun in the middle of a major crisis and came back to Texas to continue serving his constituents.” Jama adds, “We want to thank Senator Cruz for his leadership and pay for an amazing Mariachi band to perform for him. No one should go to Cancun and not listen to Mariachi.”
The GFM has a target goal of $1,000 … and Jama says donations will actually go to Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston. Let’s face it, the mariachis would probably play for free.
