Republicans continued pushing the “Sleepy Joe” narrative this week when QAnon Reps. Lauren Boebert (R-Co.) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) falsely accused President Joe Biden of falling asleep during a meeting.

Biden met with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett at the White House to discuss a variety of topics, Afghanistan being a primary focus. True to form, however, right-wing outlets found a way to smear Biden by using a very short clip of the sit-down to claim that Biden had fallen asleep as Bennett spoke.

Boebert and Greene, who are hostile toward Biden and have demanded his resignation or impeachment at every turn and support insurrection, immediately shared the video on Twitter without any kind of fact-check.

Well, CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale did his due diligence and pointed out that the full video clearly shows Biden awake and responsive.

Indeed, even the short video Greene and Boebert so eagerly shared shows Biden moving his fingers. He is looking downward and is wearing a mask, which is why it may look like he has nodded off, but he is very much awake. This is disinformation that Twitter should punish by banning Boebert and Greene from the platform.
