Was Hillary with him? We do know from the Reagan funeral that they do indeed sleep together.

I can hear him now: “I was in deep thought, remembering the black churches that burned down in Arkansas when I was a boy...how I should have gone down to Alabama in ‘68....blah blah blah...”

He dozed at the Reagan Ceremony in the National Cathedral also.

The guy is a narcicist. The media are sychophants.

Don’t expect him to be taken to task. “Great men” like Clinton mustn’t be held to account for their few shortcomings. /s

His elbow sliding off the chair and then catching himself is truly priceless. Hahahaha

I might have done the same thing but then again I was never the first black President.

He also shifted position so that he could check his watch.

He remains to this day a disrespectful P.O.S.

I’m convinced— there’s this passive/aggressive thing going on between him and Hillary. He’s going to campaign for her, but he’s going to tomahawk her on a regular basis. He’s going to do something to mess it up.
He doesn’t want to be the First Laddie.

OMG! I heard Clinton give a speech at this church just moments before the minister spoke. Clinton said "I can't wait to hear him speak." I guess he really meant: "I can't wait to go to sleep." So he didn't.

Yep, if that was Bush or any Republican in the audience (And Huckabee was there too, in the audience! I thought it strange that Clinton was invited to speak, and not Huckabee!) this would be blasted everywhere.

Guess Clinton has earned a new nickname: Wee Willie Winkie!

Did you see the part where he nods off, catches himself and then puts his hand on his ear making like he can’t hear what’s going on? That’s priceless! Hill is running him ragged, must be payback for what he did to her, hill does NOT forgive or forget.......

At his age this is probably what he means when he tells his buddies he has been “sleeping” with a lot of women.

Give him a break. When he was in office he was getting off ... many ways. Now that he’s out of office he’s nodding off ... here, there and every where.

But Dick Cheney was lambasted by the media for wearing a windjacket at Pope JP II's funeral. Oh, the horror!

Also, each time he wakes up, he starts nodding like he is agreeing with the snoozy sermon.,

The most disprectful thing is that he spoke before the sermon, and he told the congregation that he was "dying to hear the sermon."

Probably because he figured he could catch a nap. The talking heads better jump on this.

That video clip is hysterical!
Truth is Bill could give two flying craps about black people . He swindled them into thinking he was so understanding of them . They are pawns to be bought off for vote and nothing more. I can only imagine what the good ole boy Bill was saying under his breath as the speech dragged on and on !

the first black President

_______________

I am just waiting for Clinton to announce something like: You know, I said I was the first black President. (as he points and wags his finger at the audience) Now if you elect Hillary as President you will get me as the first black lady/lad in the White House. How can you beat that 2for combination - first woman president and black spouse! We have covered all the bases.

UGH...HOW RUDE CAN ANYONE BE TO FALL ASLEEP -- (wonder if he was snoring, too?) WHILE SITTING DIRECTLY BEHIND THE SPEAKER? And Bill wants to "repair" the damage done to Hillary's campaign by her racial comment about MLK and LBJ. This sure didn't do it! This was akin to a comedy sketch on a late night show. He is making a mockery of the campaign with his antics.

This was just blatantly rude. I think it’s wonderful that he was sitting facing the congregation, so everyone could see.

I watched a guy fall asleep in church one Sunday. His head fell forward and slammed into the back of the pew in front of him leaving a nice egg.

What a jerk.

I detest ex-42 as much as anybody... but I'm willing to cut him a little slack on this one. I mean c'mon... events like this are frightfully dull.

Once the droopsies set in... it's really, really hard to keep awake. We've all been in that big meeting where other people are droning on and on about something or other, and it feels like there's just no oxygen left in the room and you can feel unconsciousness taking over and no about of willpower will shake it off.

The sad thing is that this will be another personal action on his part that he will skate on. One day he will get his just reward, and having watched him deserve it so many times, it saddens me that I, my children, the rest of my family, my community members, the democrats, and the nation at large will not see it in our lifetimes. It would be an excellent object lesson.
