Videos: Student Falls Asleep During Obama Commencement Speech


sleeping-obama-speech[Videos below.] There were quite a few memorable moments Monday night, but one guy may have stole the show. And the video is already going viral on YouTube. You might notice a student over the president’s shoulder in the video below, on the right side of the screen. He looks like he’s having trouble staying focused on his big day, nodding off during the speech.

No doubt the excitement of shaking hands with the President of the United States led to a few ‘sleepless nights’ for many of the students.

It always seems to catch up with you.

  1. It’s too bad. Everyone in the school and in the community worked so hard to compete, to get him there. They have a program where everyone in that school district is entitled to a 4-year-degree if they can maintain a C average or better, and these are people who are the first in their families to go to college. I am NOT a fan of the president. But it is a shame that this one young man is drawing all the focus.
