President Joe Biden delivered his first address to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday night, weighing in on the pandemic, the economy and his administration’s efforts as his 100th day in office quickly approaches.
His audience, both houses of Congress, sat before him to listen — some members more enthusiastic than others.
It’s hard to say any were visibly less enthusiastic about Biden’s speech than Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas who appeared to be nodding off during the address he later labeled “boring but radical.”
A video tweet from San Francisco-based KRON-TV showed Cruz seemingly struggling to keep his tired eyes open, closing and slowly reopening them as Biden spoke mundanely in the background.
