Newsmax Reporter Appears To Catch Some Shut Eye During White House Press Briefing

John Gizzi did Tuesday what many Americans do everyday, namely get a little sleepy in the PM.

Unfortunately for the Newsmax chief political correspondent, his bout of near shut-eye came in the middle of Tuesday’s White House press briefing, and it was broadcast on national television.


In Gizzi’s defense, he zoned out during a particularly boring question about Jimmy Carter and North Korea but whatever.

When asked for comment, Gizzi told The Daily Caller he was getting lunch after the briefing and did not actually fall asleep Tuesday.

“I have nodded off before but I assure you I didn’t today,” he explained. “People ask me this often and anyone on either side of me — Sara Cook of NHK, today — will tell you I was up and at ’em.”

You win some, you lose some.

Either way, the media asking questions about what sex positions POTUS and Stormy Daniels prefer will drown this all out.

Stay golden, John.
