Why Joe Biden Slept During Lloyd Austin’s Memorial Day Speech?

Why Joe Biden Slept During Lloyd Austin’s Memorial Day Speech?

Now there’s been some buzz around Joe Biden falling asleep at the Memorial Day event while the Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, was delivering a speech. Newsweek didn’t even call it sleep as it wrote that Biden had “his eyes shut for an extended period.” Why don’t you watch and decide for yourself whether it was really sleep or just an extended closure of the eyelids?

Now that song was just a little too much. But even if it was sleep, which it appears to be, do we have to be so mean to this well-meaning poor old man with dementia? I see somebody called him a disgrace over it. I say let’s not be mean. Sleeping isn’t a bad thing, and I’ll explain why Biden is entitled to it, more than anyone, even during official events.

First and foremost, you conservatives all believe in the constitution, don’t you? Does that sacred document ban or bash sleeping in public ceremonies? Like all of us, Biden has a constitutional right to sleep anywhere and whenever he feels like it. No room for any reasoning here.

Secondly, it was Memorial Day. Memorial means honoring the memory of someone or something. Biden has a lot of trouble when it comes to memory. Most of his memories are fabricated or tangled up. And why should he worry about remembering at all? He has handlers to do it for him. Right? So don’t make a fuss about it, please! He is old and a Democrat. Old Democrats don’t even remember their victims, domestic or foreign. Now I don’t want to sound gerontophobic – you know those who hate old age or old people. Look at the young Democrats. Compared to Biden, Ilhan Omar and Cori Bush are babies. And they can’t tell Memorial Day from Veterans Day. They didn’t even remember to delete their tweets in which they confused the two – that is until they were reminded that they had screwed up.

And to all those insomniacs who can’t fall asleep unless you pop your pills, and those who can’t sleep on a flight or a train ride, eat your hearts out losers. Biden can sleep like a dead, well… let’s say half-dead possum in the open, much like a homeless man under the influence of some white powder, regardless of the noise around him, even when a creature from hell like Austin is making it.

And finally, I am old enough to remember how you bash Biden every time he opens his mouth, even if he is using it to read from the screen. You complain that he spews shit when he speaks. So don’t you like him sleeping at the cemetery in Virginia with eyes closed even if for a minute? For the sake of the dead alone, let that poor old man sleep instead of speaking and walking around, only to get lost.

So there you are Mr. President, feel free to sleep for as long as you like.

    The old fool was drugged. His handlers were afraid of what he might do or say

    What is it with you guys…….Trump spends over a week asleep at the wheel in court, then he goes to grab some ribs in the Bronx where he was heard saying: “whatta zoo this place,” and Dempsey gets a hard on, and Biden closes his eyes for a bit and you scream —- look he’s worse…..

    Did Dempsey even write this? Sure does not read Dempsey. I just love this part:

    “And to all those insomniacs who can’t fall asleep unless you pop your pills, and those who can’t sleep on a flight or a train ride, eat your hearts out losers.

    What the fuck does a Pakistani know about the possum? Much less Memorial Day and Veterans day, much more less the continual confusion tween the two. Those of us, not Dempsey for sure, with family in the service and wars easily know. These are days we will never remember the name Ernest Dempsey, or his real name.

    And what homeless person can afford white powder, much less enough to be under it’s influence?

    I am pretty certain he knows Hell well, though.

    FYI: this is a funny article. just not typical Demsey style, especially the “you conservatives” bit.

    On my first business junket to Tokyo in the 80’s, a boondoggle fact-finding tour, I was warned about eyes-closed, head resting on hand, custom in Japanese business, although not so much when boss is talking…. Later, on my speaking engagements there, I was glad to know as I looked out at hundreds with 10% or so closed eyes. After going out for the evening, I could understand. Those boys could party.

    I tried to bring the custom home to the US but, being honest, I could not change our ways. I did have a custom chair though that was built for a good eye-close, and more. It was heaven when doing a series of 12-16’s.
