Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) put his foot in his mouth on Wednesday while attempting to attack the Biden administration.

"John Kerry has a private jet that has flown dozens of times this past year all around the country," Cruz said.

"I don't know about you, but I don't have a private jet. I don't believe any of the people on this stage have their own private jet," Cruz said of his fellow Republicans.

At that point, somebody off-camera said Sen. Rob Portman has a private jet.

Portman, whose family owns the oldest continuously operated business in Ohio, served in both Bush administrations.

His net worth was estimated at $10,827,545 by Open Secrets in 2018 and $10,400,00 by Roll Call in January.

Following publication, Portman denied owning a private plane.
