    President Joe Biden faced backlash on Monday after cameras appeared to catch him struggling to stay awake at times during the opening speeches at 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26.

    Zach Purser Brown, a reporter at The Washington Post, posted video footage of the incident, writing: "Biden appears to fall asleep during COP26 opening speeches."


    Some of the top responses to the incident included:

  • Former President Donald Trump: "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!"
  • Rep. Mark Green (R-NC): "The face of the man who said climate change was the 'number one issue' facing humanity. 😴"
  • Ben Shapiro, The Daily Wire: "Greta. Is. Disappointed. In. You."
  • Stephen Miller, political commentator: "Joe Biden... Wake up."
  • Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX): "NOBODY in their right mind believes this man is actually running our country. It's so painfully obvious he's not physically or mentally up for the job, that it's EMBARRASSING. He needs to resign. America deserves better than this."
  • Piers Morgan, political commentator: "Jeez... not the best look when you're trying to tell the word to wake up."
  • Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC): "Sweet dreams, Mr. President."
  • Tyler Zed, podcaster: "You guys... this is embarrassing... for God's sake 25th him already."
  • Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA): "President Biden is literally asleep at the wheel while Americans face unprecedented crises on almost every front."
  • Josh Glancy, reporter: "This is troubling."
  • Tim Murtaugh, former Trump campaign spokesperson: "This is remarkable. His staff clearly saw that Biden had fallen asleep and sent someone in to wake him up. Watch the whole thing."
  • Kayleigh McEnany, former White House press secretary: "An unfortunate metaphor for the Biden presidency 😴 😴 😴"
  • Tony Shaffer, political commentator: "25th amendment now... @JoeBiden is beyond incompetent and incontinent - he's incapable and dangerous..."
  • John Cardillo, political commentator: "I for one sleep better knowing the demented great grandparents are in charge."
  • Comfortably Smug: "Holy s**t it looks like Biden fell asleep at the climate thing and an aide had to hustle over to wake him up. Anyone see this????"
  • House Republicans: "America is in crisis, and Joe Biden is asleep at the wheel."
  • Arnesa Buljušmić-Kustura, writer: "He's 78 years old. Like maybe you guys should stopping voting for people who should definitely be retired, gardening, and taking cat know?"
  • Sanya Burgess, reporter: "Not a great look..."
  • Katrina Pierson, political strategist: "Let's Go Brandon!"
  • Chris Krok, radio host: "The President is always on alert! Always watching!"
  • Matthew Loop, speaker: Say what you want but he does stay on brand 😂"
  • Kelly O'Donnell, NBC News: "He was seen on camera with his eyes closed, it appears that perhaps he was dozing. In these settings, cameras are all around. The camera caught President Biden, who turns 79 later this month, with his eyes closed for a period of time, and you're right, these can be embarrassing situations."
