[ Life]

Hillary Clinton is earning some notoriety among web trolls today as a video makes its way around the circuit of her apparently catching a few z’s during President Obama’s speech in Myanmar on Monday.

The president was the first American leader to visit Myanmar, as well as Cambodia, and gave an inspirational speech to the audience at the University of Yangon.

“You’re taking a journey that has the potential to inspire so many people,” Obama said.

Apparently, jet-lag was enough to keep the Secretary of State a little sleepy during the oration, as it appears she nodded off for a moment.

    Those light night benders dancing with the girls always leads to sleeping in class.

    Good grief, have you kept up with this woman’s schedule lately? Poor Hillary is probably seriously sleep-deprived. Give her a break!

  • Roberta

    Give the woman a break! I feel sorry for her! If those crazy Jews could get along, she wouldn’t have to miss Thanksgiving with her family. Face it, they will never get along! Just another example of brain damage caused by religion!

    • Jason

      Um, It’s actually the brainwashed fanatical muslims who keep sending their rockets into civilian areas of Israel. Check your facts. Israel has to defend itself. Why don’t you go have some sort of a solstice you athiest prick!?!

    I think she knew what Obama was going to say. It’s important to catch a nap whenever you can, especially when one is responsible for negotiating in all kinds of disputes all over the world. Go Hillary!

    Poor Mrs Clinton really does need to retire. She deserves it after what she has been through.She”s also getting too old for this BS.

  • Jacque

    Hilary not even buying Obama’s bullshi*t anymore….

  • Jason

    Well who wouldn’t fall asleep? He’s boring and all he does is lie. Lies so much that after a while you start to believe him. That’s why the kool-aid drinkers of America re-elected this blithering idiot. China must be laughing their collective ass off.

    • Marty Siegel

      Even Obama could not have said it better. And you did it without a teleprompter. Now if only Obama went to sleep for the next four years.

  • Joan

    Mrs.Clinton probably was just tired!! The media is alway trying to make something out nothing!!!

    • robert

    • JoeMama

      What do they do?

  • Libertyanne

    I was just wondering how she AND Obama find the stamina to do as much as they do. She’s just tired Leave her alone!

  • Billy

    Come on. Give it a rest. She’s an older woman, jetlagged, who already knows what’s in the speech. In my view, she’s already shown more stamina and energy than most 20 year olds.

    Ms Clinton is just a little tried..Being Secretary of State is no easy job…The New Media always trying to make something out of nothing…

  • Earl Butts

    She’s dreaming of Bill Clinton and what they’ll do in the shower if she ever gets home.

      How BLIND are you Man.Your blaming President Obama for everything that is wrong with this country.But he has been working his hardest fixing everything GW screwed up.The world would be a better place if there was no such thing as Lobbing and there would be all those Senators and Congress men who werent in their pockets.Politics is nothing but a ticket to rip off America. And had we let that Morman in we would allready be a part of China.

  • bamaramadingdong

    She was soooooooo bored she fell asleep. Join the club Hillary. He bores most all of us to tears.

  • Susanne

    No doubt, there are people stupid enough to vote for her in 2016. WAKE UP AMERICA (pun intended)!

  • http://topfitnesssecret.com/ Joseph Wilson

    Miss Clinton get some needed rest and retired–so you’ll be ready to run for president in 2016…

  • Mark

    Secretary of Sleep??? Look, she’s not an 18 yr old. She’s been going from hot spot to hot spot, trying her best to put out the flames… While I’m not a real big fan of her’s, I respect the job she is doing.

  • angieb09

    She deserves a nap. Lobe you Mrs Clinton


    She deserves a nap, she travels all over the world, damn, give her a break already!

    • Chuck Black

      Even a 25 year old would have trouble keeping up with her schedule. When you can travel thousands of miles all the day and STILL have to meet with the people see if you could even focus enough to say hello!

    • Chuck Black

      For those who respect Clinton and the enormous schedule she keeps. BRAVO You get it – No 25 year old could keep up w/her schedule

  • http://Yahoo Dee

    What do we expect? Very few could travel the world, function in a high-power, high-stakes position and accomplish what she does without needing an occasional cat nap.

    • rickeybradberry

      old, what is wrong with being old. she WILL be our next president, age is like fine wine. i need to say no more???

  • Sweetpea

    This lady needs to retire…she’s too old to hold a public office.

    How do you know she was sleeping? I close my eyes often to be able to really concentrate on what the speaker is saying.

  • k medina

  • http://topfitnesssecret.com/ Joseph Wilson

    And people were stupid enough to vote for Mitt Romney on Nov. 6. 2012..and he still loss…”THANK GOD AMERICA WOKE UP ON THAT DAY”(pun–very much intended)

  • Amrous

    You guys are stupid, she wasn’t sleeping…she was doing the L.A Reid face because she was feeling the speech. Lol

    • Stephanie Teich

      Funny! She does look like L.A. Reid during the X-Factor!

  • Marci

    Good job Sen.Clintion! You deserve to fall asleep anywhere you can, almost anywhere. Job well done! You compliment our great country.

  • RetGram

    You’d be tired too if you were doing your boss’ work all over the world. Give her a break, at least she knows how to keep the peace in these countries, and then he steps in and botches it up. By the way, I fall asleep every time he starts talking too. You get tired of someone telling everyone how great they are.

    • don wesley

      I hope to stay asleep for the next 4 years with him in office. He went into his 1st term with 4 trillion in debt, managed to raise it to 16 trillion, probably will be SO PROUD of himself in 2016 when its around 32 trillion and by then have fallen off the F*&^%$# cliff.

  • Jason Swaim

    She needs BEAUTY SLEEP most definitely, as for doing so during an Obama speech….who doesnt??? The Kenyan Senator puts everyone to sleep…except for the Health Care industry who will most certainly profit from his Obamacare, while the American lower income class suffers

  • deb

    Hilary Clinton ~ You have my permission to take a nap whenever & wherever you want! Get your rest. We still need you!

  • damian

    She’s resting for the 2016 presidential race. Quiet please!!! Future president at rest.

    • Daphne wallace

      Give it a break.

  • Daphne wallace

    She was hypnotized BEFORE by him- easier each
    TIME- just like we have been. She might pay attention, on the other hand- IF she thought TALKING makes’ a difference. ACTION back home, with the Budget, Sandy would be more exciting


    She is tired of hearing the tired worn out 4 yr story that has failed.

  • PB

    Now Youtube: “mccain sleeps bush speech”

  • tessie

    her brain is awake.she’ll be the next president come 2016 and she will rock the world.

  • Jonathan

    She deserves a little nap here and there. After all, she is zipping around the world trying to keep the bad guys away, and the good guys near. Kudos, Hill, and enjoy your rest. But come back, girl–we need you!

    It’s Jet Leg !! It happened to me too when I went to the other Pacific side on the US when i tripped from East Europe

    Boy,I’m falling asleep by just reading all these silly– little comments on here–including mines……..zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • rickeybradberry

    we need her to run in 2016. what would it hurt. i know i would vote for her. clinton for president. hell yea?????.

    • http://FACEBOOK JJ

      what would it hurt? 12 years of democrat spending policies and big government. Her responsibility for Benghazi is appaling that people want her to run at all. Not to mention she will be 69 when she would be running only older presidential candidate would be ronald regan. Her role in Benghazi and her irresponsibility on it alone makes her unfit to lead 300 million people if she can’t even protect FOUR people.

      • Richard

        How, exactly, is she responsible? Please be sure to cite specifics. Like, if I said the House GOP slashed $296 million from the embassy security, I can back that up. Can you back up your assertions with facts?

        • Ngibat


          You’re doing a good job of flushing out the really inane replies. Some of these have so little substance to back up their bitter diatribes that a spider web seems strong in comparison.

          Of course this whole article is a typical piece of fluff that’s better suited to OMG and others of that ilk.

    It should be mandatory for anyone over sixty and to be excused to take a NAP!

  • savaassoc

    Traveling is exhausting especially when done for never-ending work purposes where contention and problems seem interwoven on ongoing basis. So I excuse Clinton for being fatigued…At the same time she is showing that she has aged a lot and is not any longer up to hard political work . That should be a clear lesson to all those who naively fantasize that she can be the “nest US president,…” Sure. But what kind? Tired and non-productive for the most part–giving us their 2nd best. Give her credit for the work she has thus done, and let her retire and enjoy her private life finally. This country has many rising political stars of all stripes. We just have to give them a chance and consideration. If we don’t, we will be hanging on for the bits and pieces of the 2nd best type from tired and exhausted older politicians who are simply & truthfully past their prime. At some point we all get older and need to embrace other stages in our lives. So do the politicians. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

    • April

      I don’t think we are there yet! Clinton is in the middle of some hard stuff right now, and something tells me she probably has a bug or something too. She will see the hub bub and step up her self care game, that is how Hilary is. I totally want her to be president in 2016; totally. All this shows is that she is human. I think Obama actually should have been groomed longer before he made it to the white House himself. Your “rising stars” can wait until 2020, and hopefully until 2024. By then they will have chops.

  • Irmaa Jeane

    Clinton, stay asleep. No need to rest for 2016. Don’t punish yourself by trying to gain Clinton control of the White House for eight more years. Forget that, just sleep.

  • Charlotte Observer

    Gee….imagine someone nodding off when they are tired. What an incredible “news” story.
