Fresh off the Astros' World Series win, Cruz joined the team for Monday's victory parade in downtown Houston. In a manner befitting an authoritarian dictator, the senator and his family cruised along in a military Humvee. Unlike the Astros, he didn't receive much applause from fans.
Instead, Houstonians flipped the bird at Cruz and booed him loudly.

Cruz got a similarly hostile reaction from baseball fans two weeks ago during Game 4 of the American League Championship at New York's Yankee Stadium. At that game, fans could be heard booing the senator, one calling him a "racist piece of shit."
