WARSAW — Even an experienced traveler such as Secretary of State John Kerry can get a little worn down by jet lag.
At the end of President Obama’s news conference with Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski, cameras caught the secretary of state dozing off as Komorowski gave his closing remarks. Sitting next to him was National Security Adviser Susan Rice, who also looked tired.
Kerry and Rice traveled to Poland on Air Force One with President Obama on a flight that lasted just under eight hours. White House troops are now dealing with a six-hour time difference from what they’re used to in Washington, D.C.
Check out Kerry’s cat-nap above.
UPDATE: Secretary of State John Kerry took to Twitter Tuesday to insist he was not napping, but instead just took “a really long blink.”
