(PresidentialHill.com)- On Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New York Giants, but former President Bill Clinton didn’t seem too interested in what was going on on the field.
Reports show Clinton was seen at the game wearing a Giants hat, so maybe he wanted to escape the sadness of seeing his team lose. No one knows when Clinton fell asleep, but the final score was a sad 48-22.
The 76-year-old former President was just recently diagnosed with an illness, so it is possible that he still doesn’t have his energy back. But he also has a history of taking naps in public, sometimes at awkward times, and having it caught on camera.
According to a report, one of the most notable times was when he fell asleep at a memorial for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 2008, right behind a speaker at the event.
Perhaps Clinton had a dream, too.
It was probably about strippers.
Reports also show that Clinton fell asleep during Joe Biden’s inaugural speech.
It could have been worse. Joe Biden could have fallen asleep at his own inauguration. Biden has been known to nap as well.
During his time in office, Clinton said in an interview that a 15 or 20-minute nap in the middle of the day helps. On days when he doesn’t get as much sleep as he’d like, he tries to find a way to sneak away and lie down for 15 to 30 minutes.
Sometimes without a woman. I guess.
Clinton isn’t the only famous napper in history.
The Herald Sun wrote that Albert Einstein said he needed 10 hours of sleep at night and still took naps during the day, which he said helped him think more clearly.
Einstein also used a clever trick to wake himself up from his naps. He would go to sleep holding a spoon so that when he fell asleep, the spoon would fall out of his hand and hit something, waking him up.
