Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has been shunned as a pariah in Texas after he fled the state during a disaster to vacation in Cancun, Mexico.
On Saturday, he attempted to repair the relationship with voters by cheering on both the Houston Cougars and the Baylor Bears as the two Texas teams faced off in the Final Four.
Cruz posted a photo to Twitter showing him wearing both a Baylor shirt and a Houston hat -- although he was drinking a beer from Massachusetts, instead of a beloved Texas brew like Shiner.
However, the comments revealed how toxic Cruz has become. Here's some of what people were saying:
@tedcruz Well if it’s any consolation, fans of both teams hate you equally...— Katie Porter and the Whiteboards... (@Katie Porter and the Whiteboards...)1617480012.0
And drinking a Boston beer instead of one of the many fine brews from your state. Face it, Ted. You're a poser. You can't hang.

Those are much better than your other conflicted loyalties:
Trump v. Wife
The Big Lie v. Democracy
Cancun v. Texans

Less than two months after deserting your constituents during a freeze that killed many, you claim to represent the entire state of texas. Smdh. You don't represent me!

Cruz drinking a beer brewed in Boston, Massachusetts instead of Texas speaks volumes of his "Texas" pride. 🙄

All of Ted's attempts to be a human being fail dramatically. Perhaps he should try imitating another species.

Texas may win but with you as a senator the whole state of Texas and the USA loses!

You have never represented the entire state, but you do work for a smaller and smaller portion.
