President Biden appeared to close his eyes on Monday during the opening sessions of the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland, before an aide brought him back to reality.
Prior to his remarks to world leaders on climate change, Biden was filmed struggling to stay awake, falling asleep and falling asleep as his arms were folded as the speaker spoke about the importance of action climate.
At one point, Biden dozed off for about 25 seconds before an assistant rushed to wake the president. Biden seemed bored listening to Eddie Ndopu, a disability rights activist, who warned in his remarks that global warming threatens “our ability to grow food and even survive.”
“I call on you to take concrete action to stop the destruction of this magnificent plane,” Ndopu said as Biden began to get the zizz. âYou have the power to make decisions and make deals that will affect the lives of generations to come. You are in a position of extraordinary power. You can forever change the course we are on. You can create a world full of hope again, not fear. “
Biden was also seen rubbing his eyes after his assistant woke up.
Former President Trump has long called his political rival “Sleepy Joe” Biden in the 2020 presidential election.
Biden, who is set to turn 79 this month, is one of the oldest presidents of all time. He has not released a full and comprehensive medical examination report since 2019 when he announced his presidential campaign.
Meanwhile, the liberal media has been working overtime to justify the president taking a cat nap in front of world leaders, with MSNBC White House reporter Kelly O’Donnell saying Biden has “kept a rigorous schedule. “in the last few days.
“A moment like this in a session can be a political obstacle,” O’Donnell told MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell. âIt is also true that the hours are long, the time differences are real, and the president kept a rigorous schedule over several days, with a lot of meetings, appearances and speeches. And, pretty late at night last night.
“He flew from Italy to Scotland this morning and has a busy schedule,” she added.
The President landed in Scotland early Monday morning Eastern Time. Biden’s trip to Europe is said to leave a gigantic carbon footprint of nearly 2.2 million pounds in the atmosphere generated by Air Force 1 during the four stopovers on his six-day trip to Europe. The rest was issued by Biden’s procession, where he traveled to Rome last Friday, compromised by a cavalcade of 85 cars including two Beast limousines. In Glasgow, more than 20 Biden processions burned across Scotland’s Central Belt, from Edinburgh Airport to the conference.
Biden was one of 130 world leaders attending the United Nations Climate Summit. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping, two main polluters, were notably missing.
His speech lasted more than 11 minutes, exceeding the three minutes allotted by leader. During his remarks, after the fourth minute, a chime from a digital clock sounded, in which it went off eight times as Biden was making his remarks.
