  • Not once did I see or hear of a news story that told me where Texas' other U.S. senator was during the ice storm and what exactly did he do that helped the situation. Keep the faux outrage going folks. It feeds you much like living humans feed The Blob. 😆

  • This idiot is opposite of Midas touch - he touches Platinum and turns it into Plastic! America, WTH? Os this man a representation of your country? Really doesn’t say much for the voting public either! Thank you for giving us a laugh 😂😂😂👍🏻👌

  • I need to stop taking United knowing Ted a** could be in one of those planes seats

  • Who cares what he does what I Has the president done in the last 4 months

  • Typical liberal show host.

  • WTF...you are insane...he has a right to take his family where ever

  • The entirety of this whole comment section is mentally unstable. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

  • Why do Ted Cruz still have a job?

  • .... why would you not leave?

  • Prison 😇🙏🏾✍🏾♊️🕯⚔️🌊👍🏾🌊🌊🕯🌊🕯🕯🙏🏾😇😇🕯⚔️⚔️⚔️👍🏾😤😤😤

  • Really that's all you got to say is Ted Cruz on vacation while Texas was frozen Ted Cruz is not the mayor Ted Cruz is not the governor he's a senator it's not his place to take care of these cities that's what the Mayors and the governors of these cities are supposed to be doing you f****** liberals are so stupid

  • What even Worse is Jimmy’s jokes they dnt even make me laugh

  • I can’t believe you so called comedians ignored all the hilarious nonsense of Biden being in Michigan on a field trip WHILE Texas was freezing with power outages. Jimmy mk uktra May have made you forget who is responsible or maybe you’re just that shallow. Where is the NANCY Pelosi material that could of gained true award winning material and BIDEN gives you non stop laughs BUT you’re on their evil team of evil

  • Somebody please tell me if you would cancel a family vacation because of a winter storm? Who wouldn’t go to Mexico in winter when its freezing at home? Its not the he hates Mexicans, he hates criminals, thugs drug dealers, and illegals. I for one earned my citizenship legally and fought for the country in the Marines. I want the wall too! God Bless America! MAGA! Its not hard to do it the right way!

  • Oh so now you care about Texas

  • You should do an update where he went to the border and took video of the Biden Cages....

  • Damn Jimmy its amazing how big of a hypocrite you really are.

  • Jimmy Kimmel is the rectum of talk tv

  • No bias here.

  • At least he does his duty as a parent to his children before anything else,, so what is wrong with that? But he did come back right?

  • I just wonder, Jimmy Kimmel what are you doing to help necessarily to help communities in Texas right now? Actually, What do you really eve do for Los Angeles? A lot of people talk big and absolutely do nothing in even in their home states... But I digress!

  • JIMMY KIMMEL, there is another breaking news about TED CRUZ.... WHY AREN'T YOU COVERING THAT? coz your NARRATIVES would look like NOTHING coz you ALWAYS COVER bad stuffs about TED CRUZ but NEVER GOOD STUFF.. you cover bad stuff about TED CRUZ coz you want to VILIFY him.. you CAN NOT COVER the good stuff SENATOR TED CRUZ are doing coz YOU and your beloved Biden would ve VILIFY.....

  • Ted released some videos on Biden detention facility.

  • Jimmy say anything for money kimmel weasel no longer interested in Ted Cruz hit pieces or what?

  • Where's jimmy weasels episode on the biden cages on the border?

  • i wonder if he made it into the plane without stumbling the stairs up and down.

  • Of course you jumped all over this...Now maybe be of 'service' and do a real show about child trafficking /sex trafficking in the U.S. and remind your audience that Trump was bringing down evil traffickers left right and centre. Remind your audience of the horrors discovered beneath the White House from the previous administration ...You're a coward. God help you .

  • Go back to the man show...u suck

  • It was not that bad.

  • What did Jimmy do for the Texans other than make worthless jokes?

  • Id still watch kimmel if there were still juggies.

  • Worm on TV!

  • Jimmy Kibble... What a joke!

  • A worm on a talk show.

  • Ted Cruise hahaha

  • Kimmel what a shell of a human. Remember when cruz beat you at basketball and you showed what a real slug you were.

  • The plain team etiologically scrub because cardigan genomically wrap under a vagabond ticket. wet, glamorous printer

  • Hey jimmy did you see a clip of him trying to kiss his daughter! I did not go well funny you gotta see.

  • When I watched reactions on Internet Historian's video about the ship Costa Concordia, a few of them compared the cowardly captain to Ted Cruz. Now I understand why. :,D (Also, yes, I'm late af hearing about what's been happening in Texas since 1: I'm not American and 2: I've been staying away from social media for months.)

  • So what Ted Cruz ain’t the mayor or the governor so you want a car go cry to the mayor

  • Bet Mexicos saying....And America doesn't send their best. They send their liars, Covid deniers,their fake Senators who bring their families with them seeking Summer asylum.

  • Jimmy Kimmel voice when he cries sounds like a plane crash full of donkeys

  • Thankyou green energy. Gotta love those wind turbines.

  • ISmemrs in texas are blaming him at the moment

  • Well was he supposed to scare the snow storm away? What did he do wrong? Didn’t citizens leave too?

  • This guy is a joke... absolute garbage... what can 1 man warm, heal, and save the nation? No? Just one of the biggest states in the US? No... guess again... if thats the case why can't biden cure the world? Save all the starving? Want to blame him?

  • Jimmu sucks!! Conan all day

  • Nothing on Andrew cuomo yet huh?

  • Cruz is a jerk he left us texas

  • We went from Snapes on a plane to real snakes on a plane. ;)

  • Ted Cruz was born in Canada from Cuban decent, he believes he is white man, he doesn't believe to be a Latino. Ted Cruz is a Canadian man living in Texas. He is supposedly representing Latino interest in Texas. Texas has 38% latino population, about 35% of them of Mexican decent. He was ready for a coup d'etat in the United States, just like his fellow county man and childhood idol Fidel Castro. He also heavyly supported to build a wall to the neighbor Mexico. Ted Cruz needs to be flipped in the next election. Texas doesn't need a gusano in a land that used to be Mexican. Texans-Mexican let's flip this Canadian for a Texas born from Mexican decent. Let s go Texas!

  • ted cruz flees to mexico.

  • He is a senator, meaning he *represents* Texas in the Senate. What should he have done to help?

    • @Jack M I'm from Croatia and knew what was happening. It wasn't a secret. Great that she helped! That's the least she could do after promoting her undeveloped policies.

    • AOC raised over 4 million for texans and spread word of what was happening.

  • The wry file specifically prepare because roadway alarmingly wait across a last layer. cut, blushing helmet

  • Senator Ted Cruz left Texas for Cancun while Texas froze Prime minister scott Morrison left Australia for Hawaii while it burned

  • Anyone who leaves their pet in a freezing house and goes to Cancun gets nothing but respect form Trump and Fox. Republican values at its best.

  • US is screwed! sick sick country when Ted Cruz actually gets away with this behaviour

  • See Facebook page Dawn needing Marshall and you will see the other crimes that Ted Cruz is guilty of several other members of GOP and the City officials of San Antonio

  • Cool funny video you got here tonight jimmy

  • Not his job jo Biden He the only one can help people it’s time to get out from basement

  • Liberals even hate warm weather and the beach ! Lol . Libs hate literally everything ! And they want everyone to be just as miserable as they are.

  • Funny body shaming...

  • Jajaja

  • It doesn't matter if he booked his flight back home, damage is already done and now we know who really is this man. Texas should be his priority , wrong, priority means sun and good time for Mr Cruz.

  • Not to defend Ted Cruz but why is Jimmy Kimmel acting like he wouldn’t do the exact same thing

    • @austin kha lmao 😂😂😂😂

    • Jimmy is a comedian who is not responsible for a whole state

  • Dear Jimmy. Please stop the baseless use of the name Karen to label bad women. It is so insulting to so many Karens. Good Karens. I know of 3 that are model citizens in this terrible time. They happen to love your stance on Trump too. You owe a correction because of so many jokes‬ at their expense. It's not too late. We still love you

  • Ted Cruz is what you get if the smell of cat piss had a face

  • I guess he could

  • Hes not Texan nor born in America.. people in Texas. Smh

  • The image of Cruz slurping noodles through that ratty beard will linger far too long. Nice of Jimmy to award Stacy a participation trophy for attempting to speak despite the cold.

  • So what Ted is a Senator Not the govonor Govonor run the state Not a senator The dems headed to Hawaii to dethrone Trump While people suffered

  • Jimmy kümmel will be crying shortly for all the slandering he does!!!!

  • Stay out of Calgary, BUSTER

  • Yeah and biden rejected a bill a week before the polar vortex hit denying texas to go over the epas power grid limit and then forced them to outsource power from other states for a x6000 increase from 18$a MWHr to 3000$a MWHr and i dont pick politicians or any parties side they both are bad...

  • He was there for how many hours?

  • What's bejing joey doing while people in Texas freeze? That's what I thought.

  • Jimmy I am from Newfoundland near you town you were mayor well all my x lives in Texas. Ted was some part of Canada. He got kick out no his main job is to lick trump boots

  • Remember when Pelosi let the entire government shut down because they couldn't come to an agreement and then went on vacation in Hawaii

  • Why does this comedian talking about politicians? Looks like another dead hollyweird clown to me

  • Siri, play Cancun by Playboi Carti

  • What a disgusting human being

  • As Texas senator, he only stand with Hongkong riots, not with Texas people.

  • Ha,ha,ha,ha gotta love the internet

  • How was Jeff's island Jimmy?

  • We want Biden jokes! He's hilarious! Biden makes the whole world laugh( at USA) C'mon man. Biden jokes anymore Biden Joke

  • just looking at comments, its a special kind of stupid to follow Kimmel and comment.

  • Ted Cruz is a pathetic. Texans deserve better.. will they elect a better candidate.

  • Lots of subliminal comments and a lot of agenda programming 👍 nice job jimmy

  • Who cares

  • This shows the character of corrupted politician in America and look how much they care about you and the country

  • It doesn't matter.The terminally stupid will still vote for him.

  • Ted Cruz you're still cruising along perfect crew cut

  • Giuliani only joking anything for attention bend over more

  • Golfer Wii should go wee-wee in a corner somewhere

  • While Pelosi jaunts of to Italy with family on a military transport. Kimmel sucks.

  • Talk shows are dead lol

  • I’m surprised he’s not in a private plane with a job title like that..

  • on MSNBC they said many times Oh he's a smart guy he went to Ivy League schools He s No Dummy ...Oh Yeah Bull Sqwaut !! Dumbest morn ever to walk the earth................ Real-life Gomer Fricken Pyle!!

  • I'm still laughing, I even woke up my son laughing so hard he came out of his room and said "really mom"? Then I let him watch this video, it was then he understood. Teddy Cruz even left his little poodle home in a freezing house I guess it's not just Democrats he hates, he hates his little dog too. He needs more lie lesson's from diaper Don, that is if he can peel his lips off of Donny's butt.

  • Don't insult snakes
