Joe Biden is in hot water once again after a video from a recent conference showed him dozing off. Despite the Biden administration’s constant reiteration that climate change is the biggest threat facing the planet a speech on the subject was enough to bore him to tears, or in this case sleep.
Fox News reports:
The 78-year-old Biden – who warned military servicemembers this summer that top Pentagon officials consider climate change to be the “greatest threat” to America’s national security in the coming years – sat with his arms crossed, appearing to drift in and out of sleep, in video shared by Washington Post reporter Zach Purser Brown.
“Biden appears to fall asleep during COP26 opening speeches,” Purser Brown wrote to caption a video that showed Biden closing his eyes for extended periods of time before an aide approached him with some type of message. Biden was also seen wiping his eyes and the video quickly went viral, with many mocking the president for appearing to take a quick nap.
Former President Donald Trump has long referred to his political rival as “Sleepy Joe” and Monday’s video presumably won’t help make that nickname go away anytime soon. However, many conservatives joked that Biden nodding off during the climate conference was the most relatable thing he’s done as president.
It wasn’t long before the internet erupted in laughter at Biden’s latest gaffe.
