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

The Texas senator’s eyes started to close about one hour into the address where Biden talked about his administration’s plans to reform immigration.

The topic of immigration has been promoted by Cruz, as he has railed against how Biden is handling the surge of immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.
