In Episode 2 of “Sen. Ted Cruz’s Airport Melodrama,” Cruz was captured in a video posted to Reddit, arguing with officials at Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport in Montana on March 20. Wearing glasses and a COVID-19 mask, Cruz is first seen bickering with two United Airlines representatives at check-in. According to the video’s caption, “Law enforcement had to be called when he wouldn’t calm down,” as Cruz is then captured speaking with an airport security officer.

In a statement to the Daily Mail, Scott Humphrey, deputy director for the Montana airport, revealed that Cruz had missed his flight’s check-in window and alternative flight options were “limited out of Bozeman due to Spring Break.” Humphrey also confirmed that airport security did not know whom Cruz was while dealing with the senator. “Once travel options were explained to the passenger, he was rebooked and departed Bozeman later that evening,” Humphrey explained. All’s well that ends well for Ted, as the Texan senator was expected back in Washington, D.C. the next day for the first day of confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson (per the Daily Mail).

Of course, Twitter couldn’t help but liken this to the senator’s other airport incident, with one user joshing, “Poor little Ted missed his flight from Montana to Cancun.” CNN’s Keith Olbermann had his own snarky response as well, tweeting, “So [Ted Cruz] was apparently so out-of-control abusive … that law enforcement had to get involved. It must’ve been snowing.”
