President Joe Biden sat down with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett on Friday at the White House following the deadly Kabul attack, and a video appears to show the President falling asleep.
Biden appears to sit with his eyes closed and many individuals took to social media to say the President was sleeping for a few minutes while Bennett spoke to him.
Biden tweeted that the meeting strengthened the partnership between the U.S. and Israel and emphasized the U.S.’s commitment to Israel’s security.
While some are criticizing Biden for sleeping, others are defending the President and saying he was listening and closing his eyes to focus.
Actress and activist Alyssa Milano tweeted that she is proud of Biden and “the incredible job he’s doing.”
“He’s the right person for the job in this moment in history. #IStandWithBiden,” she said.
