Wilbur Ross Is Still Sleeping In Meetings - Dealbreaker

An interesting scoop from Politico reveals something that we've somehow known about for years: Wilbur Ross is an exhausted 81-year-old man who is very bad at being Commerce Secretary

[Wilbur] Ross doesn’t hold routine meetings with senior staffers, according to a person familiar with the department’s inner workings and a former outside adviser — a departure from past practice that one source attributed to the secretary’s lack of stamina.

“Because he tends to fall asleep in meetings, they try not to put him in a position where that could happen so they’re very careful and conscious about how they schedule certain meetings,” said the former outside adviser. “There’s a small window where he’s able to focus and pay attention and not fall asleep.”

Well, to be fair, government work is boring for a guy who just wants to go finish his days helping the Bank of Cyprus do its good works, maybe get married one last time, and never ay income taxes again. Plus, he's basically wearing pillows on his feet...you can't expect him not to doze off now and then.
