Ted Cruz Blasted Over ‘Boring And Radical’ Response To Biden’s Speech

Published

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is trying to fight back social media observations that he was sleeping during President Biden’s speech to a joint session of Congress, retweeting footage of the event that appeared to show him closing his eyes. But his response drew immediate mockery from across the internet.

Cruz called the speech “boring but radical” on social media and in interviews, suggesting Biden’s proposals for sweeping policy changes would alter the country.

“Joe is deliberately being boring, but the substance of what he’s saying is radical,” Cruz said on Fox News.

Many online commentators dubbed Cruz “Sleepy Ted,” in reference to the similar nickname former President Trump used to refer to Biden during the 2020 campaign.

The Lincoln Project, the political action committee made up of former Republicans, suggested Cruz was bored “because the building isn’t being attacked by violent Trump supporters.”
