Last week, numerous conservative pundits began circulating a clip of a video appearing to show Sleepy Joe Biden doing what he does best … sleeping.
The video is from a meeting with the Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. And for about 30 seconds while the Prime Minister speaks, it does appear Biden is nodding off.
His eyes are looking downward and there’s barely any movement as he sits in a chair trying to listen to the Israeli leader speak.
Was Biden Sleeping While Speaking with the Prime Minister of Israel?
Of course, these accusations against Dear Leader Biden can’t get by the self-proclaimed fact-checkers on Twitter. They quickly rushed to Biden’s defense, as they often do, to put those wise-cracking conservatives in their place.
Here’s the edited video appearing to show Biden dozing off for about 30 seconds while Bennett continues to speak to the press in the room.
Holy shit he’s sleeping pic.twitter.com/AcwnOBG5R5

And here’s a full video of the event released by The White House:
Now, the Twitter elite can say they’ve fact-checked this video all they want. And while yes, the full video definitely shows Biden interacting with the Prime Minister of Israel, that same full video also shows Biden going complete old man in a chair.
Regardless of whether that first video was cut, Biden definitely checks out of this conversation for about 30 seconds. Unless, of course, it’s customary to look down at the carpet and not move a muscle for that long while someone is speaking to you.
Our Fact Check team confirms that normal people don’t do that.

This “Weekend at Bernie’s” stand in is a complete failure, disgrace
and embarrassment to our country.
