Cruz is catching it from the web neighborhood for that conduct, which has led to a flood of memes and the resurrection of an episode of The Simpsons that will add to the fireplace. The parody hits just a little too near house for the Senator (who, by the way, claims he’s a fan of the present).
The episode in query aired on Might 6, 1993. Titled Marge in Chains, Mayor Quimby claims he’s canceling plans for a visit to the Bahamas to take care of a pandemic that’s enveloped Springfield.
Quimby tells everybody to remain house, however he’s truly on a seaside, sporting a jacket and tie on prime of his bathing swimsuit, pretending to be at work in his workplace. A close-by metal drum soloist threatens to present him away.
The outpouring of shock has seen a chastened Cruz provide an apology.
“It was clearly a mistake and in hindsight I wouldn’t have accomplished it,” he instructed reporters, per NBC. “I perceive why individuals are upset.”
Homer Simpson has not but commented.
