It’s Ted Cruzzz.

Sen. Ted Cruz admitted fighting to stay awake during President Biden’s speech to Congress — blaming the commander-in-chief for being deliberately “boring.”

The Texas Republican was caught on camera Wednesday with his heavy-looking eyes closed during one section of Biden’s speech, struggling to open them, and then swiftly sealing them shut again.

Cruz was quickly ripped online for his tired performance, with former “Star Trek” actor George Takei dubbing him “Sleepy Ted Cruz!” in a riff on former President Donald Trump’s favorite nickname for Biden.

“Looks like Ted’s eyes are hooked up to his state’s power grid,” Trevor Noah’s “Daily Show” tweeted, referring to the blackouts in the Lone Star State during historic winter storms earlier this year.

Numerous memes also popped up suggesting Cruz was dreaming of Cancun, the Mexican resort he flew to with his wife and kids while millions of Texans were without power.

Ted “Snooze” appeared to concede that he did catch a few z’s by retweeting C-Span footage of his siesta along with someone saying, “Ted Cruz literally falling asleep in Biden speech. He is all of us.”

He also on Thursday retweeted a story about him getting “roasted” for his nap, which he blamed on Biden being “boring, but radical.”

“True that,” he wrote.

Cruz made the “boring, but radical” claim in an interview with Fox News, alleging Biden “by design” used “calm and dulcet tones” to make it too hard to focus on his message.

“I challenge you to remember a single line from the speech,” he told the network.

“Joe is deliberately being boring, but the substance of what he’s saying is radical,” he said, raising alarm that the president was pushing to have “every tax going up.”

“This was a frightening speech masquerading in really boring tones,” Cruz said.
