Nap time is officially over for Hillary Clinton. Or at least that’s what the Democratic presidential candidate told reporters after Wednesday night’s final presidential debate.
Clinton spoke with media on her private plane and talked about her long year of campaigning. While explaining how “relieved and very grateful” she was to have made it to the end of debating season, Clinton made mention of the many naps she’s been known for taking during her campaign trial.
“Some of you have been on the trail the whole time. No more debates,” she said before adding, “No more naps.”
Donald Trump has mocked the former secretary of state for her rumored napping, alleged poor health and lack of “stamina,” including one town hall meeting back in July during which Trump described Clinton as “low energy.”
“She actually is low energy. She’ll go home, she’ll take a nap for four or five hours then come back. No naps for Trump! No naps. I don’t take naps. We don’t have time,” he said.
Clinton’s penchant for naps has never been much of a secret.
But her naps were mentioned six times in a round of emails between Clinton and her campaign chairman John Podesta recently released by WikiLeaks. In one email from January 2011, Clinton's top aide, Huma Abedin, reminded her to take a nap before a 3:30 p.m. meeting.
Although Clinton’s physician said that she was in good health, she did fall victim to pneumonia back in September, which to some raised questions.
However, a recent YouGov poll conducted in early October said that 52 percent of participants didn’t feel that Clinton’s health wasn’t in good enough standing for her to become president.
