A sleep-deprived inauguration 2021-01-21 17:10:52

I am sure that there are many people who went sleep-deprived as a result of all the preparations needed for the US Presidential Inauguration. Perhaps the most high-profile person to be mocked for this is former President Bill Clinton, who appeared to be nodding off during Biden's speech. This video made me chuckle, but it's not my favorite video of Clinton. That honor goes to this clip of his deposition during the Monica Lewinsky scandal in which he keeps his cool until he is asked about a cigar. At that moment,  his face portrays a brief flash of panic (Crap, she told them about that??) and then he regains composure.

Okay, he's 74 years old. But this was in the middle of the day at a historic event. He was outside where it was brisk and cold. These do not sound like the conditions that make you want to take a nap. Either he is on some medication that makes him sleepy or he is sleep-deprived. My bet is on sleep deprivation because that is the state most people are in.

Falling asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow. Hitting the snooze button constantly. Yawning and no energy throughout the day. All signs of sleep deprivation.

Clinton is actually notorious for his low level of sleep. A lot of people talk about it on the internet. It used to be something people praised him for before information on how bad sleep deprivation can be became mainstream. Can't be good for preventing dementia and other neurological diseases lol.

Like I said, back in the day, we didn't know you "needed" to sleep.
