Cruz on Wednesday shared the hilarious “run away” moment from the 1975 movie on Twitter to accuse Harris of inaction on a surge of migration to the U.S.-Mexico border, even though her stated focus is on addressing the root causes of migration from Central America rather than managing the border itself.

Cruz’s tweet was immediately flipped back on him.
Critics recalled the Donald Trump sycophant’s own “run away” moment when in February he fled to Cancun, Mexico, on a family vacation as his home state was hit by deadly winter storms and widespread power outages.
It’s not the first time that Monty Python has been used to mock Cruz.
Is this live footage of your during the Texas Energy Crisis?

You shouldn't be talking about people running away, Cancun Cruz.

Looks a lot like you during the Texas storm no? You hear the death toll from that is likely closer to 500 people?
