Senator Ted Cruz gets booed during Houston Astros Parade of Champions

Texas Senator Ted Cruz is once again facing boos from the crowd.

Standing on the back of a flatbed truck, Cruz waved to the sea of his constituents as he appeared in the Houston Astros World Series parade.

The downtown Houston celebration occurred on Monday, 7 November to honor the baseball team which recently won the World Series.

But instead of cheers and waves, Cruz was met with boos and thumbs-downs.

Videos of Cruz's cold welcome circulated on Twitter where people advocated for Democratic candidates in Tuesday's midterm elections.

"Ted Cruz gets booed by hundreds of Houston Astros [fans] who didn't forget he literally left them in the cold during the winter storm in 2021. #F***TedCruz #VoteForBeto," a Twitter user wrote.

Another video depicts the aggressive boos the Senator received as he passed City Hall.

"Ted Cruz pulled off what I thought was impossible- getting booed at a championship parade," Chancellor Johnson tweeted.

Cruz also faced crowd boos while visiting New York in late October.

The Texas Senator was heckled while attending a game between the Astros and New York Yankees and while making an appearance on The View.
