A request for care packages by the Texas Democrats who fled to Washington, D.C. has been met with mockery from many conservatives.

The Dallas Democrats tweeted over the weekend, “Our Dems in DC said they’d appreciate care packages from home. Before 5pm Tues, we’re collecting Dr. Pepper, salsa, hard candy, hairspray, travel toiletries, hand sanitizers, sewing kits, first aid, and/ or $ to pay shipping. TY!”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) responded by mocking, “No Miller Lite?”

Cruz’s question was in reference to a photo that went viral when the Texas Democrats first announced they were fleeing the state to block a vote on an elections integrity bill put forth by Republicans.

Pictured on a bus, a case of Miller Lite was seen sitting on a seat all by itself.

Former Trump campaign legal adviser Jenna Ellis also pounced on the request for care packages, tweeting, “These utter morons have been gone for literally only days and want a care package mailed from Texas for a photo op with stuff they could buy at a local CVS. Salsa and first aid? 😂😂😂😂😂.”

Grabien Media founder Tom Elliott quipped, “Can I donate toward one-way tickets to outerspace?”

One Twitter user shared an NBC News headline about the cost of the stunt and tweeted, “The trip costs $1.5 million or $27,272 per fugitive dem but this amount doesn’t cover the costs of salsa.”

Twitter user “Comfortably Smug” wrote, “Here’s a link to @FeedingAmerica where you can support a worthwhile charity helping Americans in need instead of throwing money at these private jet flying covid infecting morons.”

Republican communicator Matt Whitlock pointed out, “Important to note that these lawmakers are still getting $221/day in per diem from taxpayers, had private flights and luxury hotel rooms paid for, and are just sitting in hotel conference rooms doing zoom meetings. If you’re feeling charitable please find a better cause.”

“Someone please send Dr. Pepper and hard candy our legislators are dying,” he mocked.

Whitlock added, “Maybe send that one lady some underwear so she doesn’t have to keep washing them in her shower and posting pictures on the internet.”

This comment was in reference to a tweet on July 15 by Texas Democrat Donna Howard, who brought attention to the huge sacrifice they’re making by posting a photo of her underwear drying in the bathroom.

  1. Really???? They’re asking for “care packages.”
    Shame $200+ per DAY ($1400+ /wk) isn’t enough to purchase whatever it is they needed. Certainly had enough $$$ for beer.
    Curious though, when they left Texas did no one pack a travel bag? How long did they think they would be gone? Are they planning to stay in DC forever, relocate their families, and resign from their elected government position?

  2. Ha, ha! These cost-incurring dems planned this escape to DC as well as they are informed about the voting bills they’re avoiding.

    That is: they didn’t bring basic necessities and clothing with them, and they’ve clearly not read the voting bill. It doesn’t restrict legal, valid voting; the bill will restrict illegal voting. No one who’s honest could reasonably complain about deterring fraudulent voting.

  3. Lock down their bank accounts. Reposess their homes. Sell their partners to saudi princes as slaves. Declare them deadbeat parents. Use their own methods against them.

  4. Whaaat? The more than half million that Beto ORoark sent wasn’t enough!? These privileged idiots got a lot of nerve.

  5. Your tax dollars going down the pooper while they are on a “get away” and they still want more!!! These brain dead twits think they are clever and cute! Hope this shenanigan bites them in their fanny!!

  6. So leftist thinking! Big question how do you “UNwash” your underwear? 😂
    They’re getting big donations from the left but they need care packages and money?!
