Texas Sen. Ted Cruz caught sleeping during Biden’s address

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden addressed a joint session of Congress on Wednesday night in the House Chamber at the U.S. Capitol.

Just about all eyes were on the president who addressed a variety of topics during his address, including the American Rescue Plan, Covid-19 vaccination distribution, stimulus checks, food and rental assistance and more.

And while Biden’s speech was interrupted by ovations and applause at times during the address, Sen. Ted Cruz was a little less enthusiastic.

Cruz, R-Texas, was caught sleeping during Biden’s address.

Video footage shows the senator sleeping then briefly opening his eyes, before dosing off again while Biden briefly addressed the migrant crisis at the border.
