A video of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) seemingly falling asleep during Joe Biden’s address to Congress has gone viral.
Thousands have now seen the video of Cruz caught on camera Wednesday night, appearing to be resting his eyes and struggling to stay awake.
As Biden spoke about the migrant crisis, cameras panned to catch Cruz’s reaction as seen in the video below.
After the speech, Cruz suggested Biden was deliberately being boring to cover up the radical content of his speech.
