Everyone's Relating to the Boy Who Fell Asleep During the State of the Union Address

By Mustafa Gatollari

Joshua Trump, 11, captured the hearts and minds of Americans everywhere last night, just by taking a nap during a speech.

One wouldn't think such a simple act would be enough to spark so much adulation across the internet, but I suspect it has a lot to do with the fact that, deep down inside, we all want to be able to do what we want, whenever we want.

I can't remember the number of times I just wanted to just peace out of a sermon or a long-winded talk that was boring the ever-loving heck out of me. I'm sure you've found yourself in the exact same predicament.

But you can't do anything about it because of "social etiquette" and "not embarrassing your family for the millionth time this week" or whatever.

It's not as if you're trying to be defiant or hurt someone's feelings on purpose just to make them feel bad, but that you hate being obligated to pretend to enjoy something that is so clearly a waste of time.

But the young man who was invited by Melania Trump to attend a State of the Union address after the child was bullied for his last name said, "No!" He took a stand for everyone of us out there who found themselves bored beyond belief in a hoity-toity social gathering.

He went and zonked out during the President's speech, cameras and critics be damned.
