On Sunday, while the Philadelphia Eagles were busy thrashing the New York Giants, former president Bill Clinton apparently wasn’t too taken aback by what was happening on the field.
At the game, Clinton’s napping in a suite was captured on camera. He was seen at the game sporting a Giants hat, so maybe he wanted to get away from the disappointment of seeing his team lose. It’s unclear when Clinton fell asleep during the contest, but the final score was a dismal 48-22.
It is conceivable that the 76-year-old former president’s vigor hasn’t entirely returned because COVID was only recently identified in him. It’s interesting to note that despite receiving booster shots and vaccinations, Clinton nonetheless contracted COVID.
He has, however, a history of falling asleep in public, occasionally at inconvenient times, and suffering the misfortune of someone capturing it on tape.
One of the most prominent incidents occurred when he dozed off behind a speaker at a 2008 tribute for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Indeed, “I have a dream.”
More recently, as Joe Biden was giving his inaugural address, Clinton reportedly slept.
He also hasn’t hidden the fact that he adores taking naps.
During his presidency, Clinton stated in an interview, “If I can take a nap, even 15 or 20 minutes in the middle of the day, it is really invigorating to me. On the days when I’m a little short of sleep, I try to work it out so that I can sneak off and just lie down for 15 minutes, a half an hour, and it really makes all the difference in the world.”
