    President Obama’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly may not have been as rousing as he’d hoped.

    On Monday morning, Obama took to the stage before the UN General Assembly. But only minutes after his introduction, US Secretary of State John Kerry was caught yawning on camera.

    The network was quick to cut away, and Kerry was doing his best to hide behind his hand, but the evidence is there.

    According to his public schedule, the secretary of state had an early meeting that day, but still, it’s gotta be a blow to the president’s confidence to see his top diplomat on the verge of a nap in the front row.
