Cruz’ remarks came as he spoke about at a political reckoning in November, hinting at major Republican gains in the next election.
“Every Democrat in the country is terrified,” he said. “From the dog catcher all the way up to the most powerful Democrat in the world, Joe Biden’s handler.”
“Listen, even Kamala Harris is getting restless. She just hired Nancy Pelosi’s husband to be Joe Biden’s driver,” Cruz joked.
Cruz’ comments drew laughs from the crowd and come as part of long line of criticisms of the president’s mental fitness.

Even CNN host Don Lemon questioned the Biden administration on the topic.
“I interviewed [Biden] several times when he was running for president and as president of the United States,” Lemon said. “I have interviewed him, and he has trouble sometimes connecting, and his answers sometimes don’t make sense. And so I want to know, as a journalist, as an American, does this president have the mental and physical stamina to run again as president of the United States… considering the reports are coming out, and considering my eyes and my ears. I can hear him, and I can see him every single day.”
“But liberals need to stop having a double standard when it comes to questions that we can ask Democrats and questions that we can ask Republicans,” he added.
