    On the day of George H. W. Bush's state funeral, former US President Bill Clinton and Ex-Vice President Joe Biden somehow managed to garner particular attention on social media.

    While watching a funeral service for the 41st US President George H.W. Bush at the Washington National Cathedral in Washington, DC, on Wednesday, social media users noticed that former Vice President Joe Biden had seemingly dozed off.

    The ex-vice president was repeatedly mocked by incumbent POTUS Donald Trump, who has a thing for devising monikers for his friends and foes, as “Sleepy Joe”.

    But Biden was not the only person in the room who dove into sleep mode – former US President Bill Clinton might have followed in his footsteps:

    And this couldn't pass unnoticed by eagle-eyed Twitterians:

    This is not the first time that Biden has been spotted nodding off in public: during his tenure as vice president, he dropped off to sleep while his then-boss Barack Obama was delivering a keynote speech on saving the nation’s economy.
