Bill Clinton has a habit of getting into trouble.
His sexual escapades strained his marriage to Hillary and even led to his impeachment.
But it was what he did during Hillary Clinton’s acceptance speech that had everyone talking.
It was a fitting visual.
Bill Clinton snoozed away while Hillary spoke of an America that could only exist in dreams.

In her speech, Hillary spoke of an America many believe simply does not exist.
She glossed over the targeting of police officers for assassination, the rise of ISIS – thanks to her foreign policy, and an anemic economy which grew at just 1.2% last quarter.
And, once again, Hillary refused to say the words “Islamic terrorism”.
Donald Trump issued a sharp response to her speech on his Facebook page:
“Hillary Clinton’s speech was an insulting collection of clichés and recycled rhetoric. She spent the evening talking down to the American people she’s looked down on her whole life.
Hillary Clinton talks about unity, about E Pluribus Unum, but her globalist agenda denies American citizens the protections to which they are all entitled – tearing us apart. Her radical amnesty plan will take jobs, resources and benefits from the most vulnerable citizens of the United States and give them to the citizens of other countries. Her refusal to even say the words ‘Radical Islam’, or to mention her disaster in Libya, or her corrupt email scheme, all show how little she cares about the safety of the American people.
It’s a speech delivered from a fantasy universe, not the reality we live in today.
Hillary Clinton says America is stronger together. But in Hillary Clinton’s America, millions of people are left out in the cold. She only stands together with the donors and special interests who’ve bankrolled her entire life. Excluded from Hillary Clinton’s America are the suffering people living in our inner cities, or the victims of open borders and drug cartels, or the people who’ve lost their jobs because of the Clintons’ trade deals, or any hardworking person who doesn’t have enough money to get a seat at Hillary Clinton’s table.”
Trump also used footage of Bill fast asleep in an attack ad.
Hillary had hoped to use her speech as the kickoff to her general election campaign, but Trump has come out firing.
Trump emerged from the Republican convention with a significant bounce that vaulted him into the lead – and if the rest of America was as bored with Hillary’s speech as Bill –he may very well remain there.
