Joe Biden held a virtual town hall event this week that featured Hillary Clinton.
At one point, Biden appears to nod off, closing his eyes.
Who can blame him for this? Wouldn’t you fall asleep if you were forced to listen to Hillary Clinton talk?
The Washington Times reports:
Biden appears to fall asleep during town hall with Hillary Clinton
Conservative Twitter feeds and websites exploded with mirth Tuesday when Joe Biden appeared to fall asleep during a virtual town hall meeting with Hillary Clinton.
The livestreamed event was designed to highlight Mrs. Clinton’s endorsement of Mr. Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.
During the event, Mr. Biden frequently cast his gaze down as if consulting notes.
But at one point, Mr. Biden closed his eyes, put his head down, and remained motionless for some 15 seconds or more, video of the event shows.
Eventually, the 77-year-old candidate appeared to be startled awake, and he jerked his head up, eyes blinking.
The video was shared by many people on Twitter:
