Astros fans loudly booed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz as he rolled through the streets of Houston in a military vehicle as part of the team's championship parade.
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz got a less-than-warm welcome from Houston Astros fans during the team's hometown championship parade.

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."
