The 81-year-old Ross was caught on camera apparently dozing off in the audience Tuesday as President Trump delivered his address during the UN General Assembly.
The commerce secretary was seen with his eyes closed and his head nodding for minutes on end.
CNBC reports that it had recorded Ross’ eyes being closed for as long as 15 minutes during the almost 40-minute speech.
This is not the first time the multimillionaire investor has struggled to keep his eyes open at awkward moments.
Ross was lambasted in May 2017 for taking a nap while seated next to Ivanka Trump and Reince Priebus during Trump’s first foreign speech as commander-in-chief.
Video showed the newly minted commerce secretary nodding off with his eyes closed as Trump spoke in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. SOURCE
