Did Bill Clinton fall asleep during the funeral service for former President George H.W. Bush?
During the service on Wednesday in Washington, D.C., the former president was seen shutting his eyes and nodding off several times.
While historian Jon Meacham was delivering his remarks to the audience, the cameras turned toward the front row, which featured the Trumps, Obamas, Clintons, and Carters.
“His life code, as he said, was tell the truth, don’t blame people, be strong, do your best,” Meacham said as the camera slightly zoomed in on Clinton with his eyes closed for several seconds.
Several users on social media also caught the moment.

The former president was also seen making weird facial expressions throughout the service.

Watch this video of Clinton seemingly unable to close his mouth:
Meanwhile, Hillary was acting strangely, too.
She could be seen rocking in her seat, her eyes drifting up to the ceiling before she held the program only inches from her face so she could read it.

Aside from the former president apparently taking a nap and Hillary’s bizarre behavior, the service began with a little bit of drama.
One of the front row pews was reserved for the Trumps, Obamas, Clintons, and Carters.
When President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump were escorted to their seats, they shook hands and spoke with both former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.
As they were speaking with the Obamas, Hillary Clinton furiously stared forward and refused to even acknowledge the Trumps.
Neither Bill or Hillary Clinton spoke to or shook hands with the Trumps, who were sitting just a few feet away from them.
“President Trump shaking the hands of the Obamas. The Clintons did not acknowledge President Trump,” the CBSN anchor said, with the camera positioned on the front row.
While the Trumps and Obamas were able to put their differences aside and be cordial, it appears the Clintons are still very bitter.
