Bill Clinton tweeted last night that watching his daughter Chelsea introduce her mother at the Democratic National Convention was one of the greatest moments of his life. It seems that he came down from that emotional high pretty quickly.
Tuesday I said Chelsea’s birth was the greatest moment of my life. Seeing her introduce her mother tonight is right up there! #DemsinPhilly— Bill Clinton (@billclinton) July 29, 2016
While Hillary Clinton was giving her acceptance speech, video appears to show the former president falling asleep. Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton's running mate, appears to glance over at the former president, whose eyes are closed, then looks off camera to his left before leaning forward as if to block the camera's view.
It didn't take long for some people to have a little fun at his expense.
