Did Bill Clinton Catch a Little Shut-Eye During Hillary's Speech?

It was pretty late

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.

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.

Maybe Bill Clinton was trying to make the power nap great again.
