It appears that former President Donald Trump might have spoken too early when he decided to name President Joe Biden “Sleepy Joe” throughout the 2020 election. People have now reworked the name for former President Bill Clinton, who looks as if he may have been dozing off during Biden’s inauguration.
During the Jan. 20, 2021, inauguration, CBS cut to many of the high-profile attendees at the ceremony. Unfortunately for Clinton, who was seated next to his wife, Hillary Clinton, producers jumped to him at an unfavorable time when his eyes were closed, leading the internet to troll him for sleeping during the historical event.
“everyone else saw bill clinton sleeping… right? wake that man up,” one user recommended. Another person compared Clinton’s sleeping to a little kid sleeping in church. Many people were quick to defend Clinton’s alleged snooze, reasoning that he is simply old. At the time of Biden’s inauguration, Clinton was 74 years old — four years younger than Biden as he was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States. An additional viewer chimed in by stating that “@BillClinton was stress sleeping,” adding that “we have all been on edge for 4 years.”
From the thrilling performances to powerful speeches, the inauguration had the internet bursting with excitement. People shared their joy over Joe Biden becoming the 46th president of the United States. “Congratulations to our new President @JoeBiden and VP @KamalaHarris We know you will do your best to make America good again,” Jimmy Kimmel wrote. “In my lifetime, I’m not sure where the best Inauguration speech falls, by I am positive I just heard the most important inaugural speech of my lifetime just now,” actor Josh Gad tweeted following Biden’s speech.
