Trump Has To Be ‘Jolted Awake’ In Court Again

Former President Donald Trump was “jolted awake” by attorney Todd Blanche during his hush money-election interference trial and it marks at least the fourth time Trump has fallen asleep in court in the past week via Mediaite.



It was last week which saw the official start of the Stormy Daniels hush money-election interference trial being prosecuted by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, and presided over by Judge Juan Merchan. One of the most high-profile facets of the trial was Trump falling asleep in court at least three times.

On Monday, the trial resumed with opening arguments and, time permitting, testimony from National Enquirer publisher David Pecker. However, it was shortly after the proceeding began, Trump was caught catching Zs again.

It was CNN commentator and New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman and her Times colleagues who first reported Trump’s initial lapse into naptime last week as they provided live text updates from the trial, and it was the Times who reported it during Monday’s live updates.

It has been noted that the investigative reporter Susanne Craig wrote “Trump is struggling to stay awake. His eyes were closed for a short period. He was jolted awake when Todd Blanche, his lawyer, nudged him while sliding a note in front of him.”

President Joe Biden’s campaign has been trolling Trump consistently over the multiple lapses, even referring to Trump as “Sleepy Don” in a memo to the press on Friday. Before last week, one of Trump’s many nicknames for President Joe Biden was “Sleepy Joe”
