AceShowbiz - Donald Trump couldn't let it slide after Joe Biden was caught on camera seemingly falling asleep at a climate conference. After a video emerged of the current president apparently dozing off during the COP26 summit, the former POTUS released a statement to mock his successor and air his grievance over things that he has claimed as hoaxes.
"Even Biden couldn't stand hearing so much about the Global Warming Hoax, the 7th biggest Hoax in America," he said in the statement released via email, "followed closely behind by the 2020 Presidential Election Scam, Russia, Russia, Russia, Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2 and, of course, the 'No Collusion' finding of the Mueller Report."
He continued insisting that global warming is not a dire threat as noting, "Biden went to Europe saying Global Warming is his highest priority, and then promptly fell asleep, for all the world to see, at the Conference itself. Nobody that has true enthusiasm and belief in a subject will ever fall asleep!"
Also criticizing Biden for falling asleep at the conference was House Republicans which tweeted, "America is in crisis, and Joe Biden is asleep at the wheel." Piers Morgan added, "Jeez... not the best look when you're trying to tell the word to wake up."
During the opening speeches of COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland on Monday, November 1, Biden closed his eyes for approximately 30 seconds. He was later fully alerted when a staffer approached and spoke to him.
When it's his turn to speak at the summit, Biden slammed Trump's leadership, apologizing for Trump's decision to pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate agreement. "I shouldn't apologize, but I do apologize for the fact the United States, the last administration, pulled out of the Paris Accords and put us sort of behind the eight ball a little bit," he said.
