Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz was spotted dozing off during President Joe Biden's speech at the joint session of Congress on Wednesday, April 28, 2021, just minutes after senior GOP Senator Mitt Romney was seen sleeping in the balcony. While a section of social media users did not hold back in calling out the senator for his 'disrespectful' behavior, another group made hilarious jokes and memes out of the now-viral screenshot and video of him catching a snooze.

Cruz was dubbed 'Ted Snooze' by Twitterati, many of whom also tried to popularize the trend #GoToBedTed. As soon as the photo of him sleeping surfaced, people reminded the GOP politician of the time in February 2021 when Texas was powerless in extremely cold weather and he flew to Cancun to vacation with his family. He was also trolled for wearing a mask that had the phrase 'Come and Take it' written on it. Many even called him out for sleeping during a presidential address especially since he called Joe Biden 'Sleepy Joe'.

'Wake up and help save our Nation'

Cruz was subject to brutal trolling by social media users alongside fellow GOP leaders Mitt Romney and Mitch McConnell whose reactions were also criticized. "If y’all watching I know y’all seen Ted Cruz sleeping through the Presidential Address to Congress. Wake up and help save our Nation. So disrespectful not to just President Biden but to US," an angry user tweeted.

A disgruntled Rex Chapman added, "If you were an employer at any job in the world - and this happened in one of your meetings - you’d be fired. Is this American work ethic?" Democratic Rep Eric Swawell asserted that Cruz was 'dreaming of Cancun' as he was seen trying hard to keep his eyes open.  The Gregory Brothers also did not hold back from slamming the GOP Senator. "Ted Cruz when you cancel his flight to Cancun vs. Ted Cruz when you attack his wife," they tweeted, comparing two photos of Ted Cruz - one where he is all fired up and the other of his sleeping at the Congress session. The tweet was in reference to the time when former president Donald Trump shared an unflattering picture of Cruz's wife in a distasteful meme.

One user tweeted, "Ted Cruz pulling a Ted Snooze and falling asleep." Meanwhile, a second one reiterated, "Ted Cru(Sleeping emoji)". A third person tweeted, "Gonna be awkward if Ted Cruz trying to call #PresidentBiden sleepy joe again. Republicans lost that insult because of Ted Snooze." The bizarre message on his mask also sparked hilarious jokes. "Lol
@tedcruz with the “come and take it” mask. Take it where? Cancun?" a user tweeted.
