WATCH: ‘Chairman’ Jerry Nadler falls asleep during House Judiciary Committee hearing with Attorney General Bill Barr

If you or I fell asleep on the job we'd be fired, right?

OPINION: If you can’t manage to stay awake during your own hearing, you probably shouldn’t be in Congress.

But that’s New York’s Democrat Congressman Jerry Nadler—he’s either so sickly or so old that he can’t manage to stay awake during a hearing that he arranged, one which he chairs.

Maybe it’s for the best because when Nadler’s awake, he’s either a snarky coot or spreading fake news.

When you watch this, pay close attention to his hand…that’s the hand of a man in full REM sleep.

You can watch the video below:

The Bill Barr hearing was an absolute clown show. Democrats made fools of themselves, hitting Barr with a barrage of Gotcha! statements, but never allowing him to effectively respond.

Even so, Barr handled himself like an absolute pro and managed to help Democrats look even more stupid.

Maybe that’s why Nadler the napster decided to “check out” and go to sleep.
