Thread: Jet Lag

  1. #1

    Jet Lag

    Ben Stein just had a segment on CBS Sunday Morning. He attributes a large portion of the POTUS' odd statements and behavior to jet lag and fatigue.

    Jet lag hits travelers when they travel long distances across time zones rapidly. The brain gets squished up inside the skull,...


    He went on to say that it used to be mandatory that traveling dignitaries were required to arrive 48 hours prior to any meetings to allow re-acclimation to the current time zone, and this policy was discontinued during the Nixon administration.

    He does have a point. Jet lag can mess with your judgement, but I think Ben is overlooking the fact that this is who Trump is. 48 hours of rest would not change one thing he says or does. In fact, he'd be frustrated for having to stand down when there were things to do.

    Can you imagine the pent-up tweets, comments and insults that would erupt after 48 hours?
