Ted Cruz goes viral after falling asleep throughout President Biden’s tackle
Roommate, we’ve all had a moment when sleep becomes too strong to ignore. It starts with heavy eyelids, then your neck can slowly drop before a slight crack wakes you up again. At this moment you realize that you have fallen asleep unintentionally. It’s common in people when we get tired. However, your moment can easily go viral if you’re a senator banging on with sleep during the president’s address to Congress. That is exactly the case with Senator Ted Cruz.
On Wednesday evening, President Joe Biden addressed several initiatives and plans in front of Congress to soothe and uplift the American people. This is common for seated presidents. Typically, network cameras range from media outlets across the country to Democratic and Republican lawmakers to get responses. Towards the end of President Biden’s hour-long speech, cameras caught Ted nodding off.
In the many clips shared online, Ted’s eyelids slowly opened before they seemed to roll back into his head. This took a few seconds. Unfortunately for Ted, his infamous moment came when Joe called for communication between the two political parties on key issues such as immigration. People report that immigration is a “key issue” in Texas, the state Ted represents.
After the speech, Ted responded to the viral moment with a retweet of the sleepy time clip. He titled his post “#BoringBut Radical” in relation to his thoughts on Biden’s speech.

In his speech, Biden talked about important issues such as raising the minimum wage to $ 15 an hour. He declared that “no one who works 40 hours a week should live below the poverty line”. As previously reported, the national minimum wage is $ 7.25 and has not increased since 2009.
Biden also took the opportunity to honor beloved George Floyd and to call for police reform.
“My fellow Americans, we must come together to restore trust between law enforcement and the people they serve, root out systemic racism in our criminal justice system, and carry out police reform on behalf of George Floyd, who has already passed this house … that we need to work together to find consensus, but let’s get that done next month by the first anniversary of George Floyd’s death, ”said President Joe Biden.
George’s killer Derek Chauvin was convicted of three murder and manslaughter cases earlier this week. Derek’s judgment date is June 2021.
