In a joint session of Congress, Biden presented a comprehensive vision for the country’s future and highlighted his accomplishments 100 days after starting his presidency.
A number of conservatives have challenged Biden’s delivery. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) called it “boring, but radical”. Fox News’ Sean Hannity compared Biden to a “corpse.” Minority House Leader Kevin McCarthy said it “could have been an email”.
“Ted Cruz got so bored of this speech that he fell asleep,” Noah said. “And I know what you’re thinking right now, you think I’m going to say something like, ‘Oh that’s weird, I thought lizards were sleeping with their eyes open,’ but I’m not going to say that. Because honestly, it was the most relatable thing Ted Cruz had ever done. Because this speech was boring.
“And when you consider that almost none of Biden’s goals are going to pass Congress, I mean, we just listened to an old man talk for an hour about his dreams,” he added.
If it was up to Noah, he would abandon the delivery altogether.
“Just print it out, let people read it,” he said. “I mean, when did we decide you could only judge a policy proposal by how well it was executed?”
