In the midst of a political saga filled with jabs and retorts, the ongoing legal battle between former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden has taken an intriguing turn. Both sides find themselves grappling with accusations of drowsiness and fatigue. What began as Trump’s moniker of “Sleepy Joe,” aimed at questioning Biden’s fitness for office, has now boomeranged back with reports suggesting that Trump himself may have experienced a nodding-off moment during his hush-money trial in New York.

Later Friday, Biden’s campaign dubbed Trump “Sleepy Don” in a news release, asserting that he had a “nightmare week” that involved catching “some shut-eye.” “A feeble and tired Donald Trump once again falls asleep in court,” the campaign stated Friday on X, reacting to a New York Times live blog entry that reported Trump “appears to have fallen asleep in court again.”

However, Trump’s campaign swiftly fired back, denouncing the Times report as “fake news” and redirecting the focus to instances where Biden, too, had shown signs of tiredness or even fallen asleep during meetings. This tit-for-tat exchange only added fuel to the already fiery clash between the two political figures.

The trial at the heart of this drama marks the first of four that Trump is set to face, with the 2024 election looming large. With 34 felony counts related to falsifying business records hanging over him, the stakes are undeniably high. While the veracity of Trump’s alleged courtroom naps remains a topic of debate, Washington Post reporters noted multiple instances of his eyes drifting shut during the proceedings.

As the legal battle unfolds in the public eye, the “Sleepy Joe” retort has become a focal point, symbolizing the ongoing struggle for dominance and narrative control between Trump and Biden. With each side aiming to land the knockout blow, the courtroom drama promises to be just the beginning of what is sure to be a contentious and captivating race toward the 2024 presidency.
