House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy
(R-Calif.) likely shocked typical humans Friday when he dinged President Joe Biden
for apparently requiring at least five hours of sleep a night.
McCarthy was attempting to make a point about Biden’s energy compared to Donald Trump

“At no time, having known Joe Biden for quite some time, does he have the energy of Donald Trump,” McCarthy told Sean Hannity
on Fox News
. “Donald Trump didn’t need to sleep five hours a night.”

Critics on Twitter noted that a more standard amount of sleep than Trump’s alleged needs can help guard against developing dementia, foggy logic and perhaps even unhinged tweets.
Not sleeping enough is a risk factor for dementia and other physical and metal health issues; it can affect thinking and judgement. It’s also a potential indicator of Adderall consumption.
The previous guy’s term in office:
- 126 days at rallies / super spreader events
- hours watching Fox daily
- 307+ days at his golf resorts
- 60 days focused on overturning the 2020 election & inciting insurrection
- 26,237 tweets
Manic is not exactly what I look for in a President.
“Mania is a psychological condition that causes a person to experience unreasonable euphoria, very intense moods, hyperactivity, and delusions.”
Like delusions of having won an election he lost...
