A White House reporter appeared to nod off on live television during Tuesday's White House press briefing.
The Washington Free Beacon‘s own Brent Scher was in the room and first to notice the reporter sleeping, but was too cordial to call the individual out by name.
A member of the press, who I will not be naming, literally just fell asleep during the WH briefing.

That became a bit of a moot point when Newsmax's John Gizzi was caught dozing on camera during an exchange between Real Clear Politics correspondent Alexis Simendinger and Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Gizzi–seated behind Simendinger–at first appeared alert, but slowly closed his eyes, sunk his head, and ceased to move.
Gizzi has had quite the banner week already at the White House, having given the world a phenomenal gif during Monday's briefing.
