Democrats celebrated the inauguration of Preisdent Joe Biden on Wednesday.
The event — by liberal standards — was a star-studded event featuring the likes of the Obamas, the Bush family, and Supreme Court justices Sonia Sotomayor and John Roberts.
Of course, the Clintons showed up as well.

And what television cameras caught former president Bill Clinton doing very quickly spread across social media.
Apparently, he didn’t find the ceremony very interesting.
In fact, it was so boring he appeared to fall asleep in the middle of the proceedings…

Surrounding Mr. Clinton was his wife Hillary, now former Vice President Mike Pence and former President George Bush. Select major outlets such as the New York Post confirmed Clinton’s nap as well.

But this isn’t the first time that the former president has stirred up controversy at an inauguration ceremony. During the previous inauguration for former President Donald Trump, news outlets circulated stories that suggested Clinton had been making googly eyes at Melania Trump, as he stood right next to Hillary.

The former president expressed his gratitude for attending the opportunity on Twitter.
“I am honored to be here to witness the Inauguration of @POTUS Joe Biden and @VP Kamala Harris in a ceremony that has affirmed our democracy and celebrated the best of what America stands for. I send my congratulations, best wishes, and prayers as they begin their important work.”
