WARSAW, Poland, June 4 (UPI) -- Secretary of State John Kerry defended himself on Twitter after an ABC news camera caught him snoozing at a press conference in Poland.

The active traveler was attending a press conference with President Barack Obama and Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski, when he was recorded taking a power nap.

Brian Ries of Mashable tweeted a picture of the sleepy secretary, and Kerry tweeted back with an airtight defense.


In his defense, Kerry is not the only politician who has been caught nodding off in public. Vice President Joe Biden was caught catching some shut-eye during a speech by Obama. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was also caught evaluating the inside of her eyelids during Obama's 2013 State of the Union address.
