Oh, wait: that was parody.
Gentle Readers, prepare yourselves for a shock! It seems it might not be exactly true!
His wife Heidi (infamously immortalized by Lord Damp Nut as a “dog” and if silence gives consent, agreed to by Ted) is Goldman Sachs executive and is probably is capable of escorting her kids on a plane was on the trip, too, so his story about escorting the kids was already leaking water.
And we now know that Heidi-the-Hound actually was planning the trip:
…because left to their own devices, what 10- and 12-year old kid would not choose the [checks notes] Ritz Carlton for a fun family beach escape? Also, we see that the return trip was scheduled for Sunday.

And he STILL IS USING THE KIDS.
UPDATE 1: What a freakin’ monster:
