Trump slams Biden for apparently dozing off during climate summit

Donald Trump doesn’t call Joe Biden “Sleepy Joe” for nothing.

As the global elite gathered for a climate change summit in Scotland Monday, President Biden was seen catching a wink as the cameras rolled.

According to the New York Post, Trump mocked Biden over the moment, which he said proves the current president does not believe his own rhetoric about global warming.

Reports: Staff woke Biden to clap for speech

Seated, with arms crossed, Biden was caught resting his eyes for about 30 seconds while listening to a speech before a staffer approached Biden and woke him. The president then clapped, and started rubbing his eyes.

Later, Biden gave a dramatic speech calling climate change an existential threat to the human race, as he apologized for the Trump administration’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accords. “The existential threat to human existence as we know it,” Biden said, according to Fox News. “And every day we delay, the cost of inaction increases.”

But Biden’s body language suggests he doesn’t believe his own apocalyptic rhetoric, Trump said in an email message.

“Biden went to Europe saying Global Warming is his highest priority, and then promptly fell asleep, for all the world to see, at the Conference itself,” Trump said, as the New York Post reported. “Nobody that has true enthusiasm and belief in a subject will ever fall asleep!”

“Sleepy Joe’s” decline

When Biden started dozing off, some saw the moment as an ironic encapsulation of the Biden presidency, which many consider an era of steep decline. Kayleigh McEnany, Trump’s final press secretary, called it an “unfortunate metaphor.”

Indeed, many seem to be finding it hard to believe that “America is back” as Biden falls in the polls, with 71% of Americans saying the nation is on the wrong track.

Despite his apparent weakness, Biden has pushed aggressively to re-engineer American society with a “Build Back Better” agenda that reportedly includes half a trillion dollars in tax subsidies for the “clean energy” industry. Biden has also opened the southern border while sending the feds after conservative parents.

But many continue to see Biden, who is 78, as too feeble to be president, and even his staffers have conceded that his often incoherent comments make them nervous. It all makes for an at times amusing, but often insidious spectacle that appears to bear out Trump’s 2020 prediction that “Sleepy Joe” isn’t up for the job.
