Reporters are working really hard these days, much to Trump's chagrin. Because democracy dies in darkness, journalists are working overtime trying to make sense of WTF is happening in the Trump White House, as the 24 hours cycle keeps cycling at all times.

Newsmax's John Gizzi caught some much-needed shut-eye when he could get it, which happens to have Tuesday's White House press briefing with Press Secretary/Easter Bunny Sean Spicer.

Keeping up with Sean Spicer's lies is exhausting.

Now, with commentary:

"REM sleep engaged!"

John Gizzi's big nap came a day after the Twittersphere became obsessed with him as he became a real-life "Deal with it" meme.

For comparison, a Legolas meme version:

The eminently memeable Gizzi denies that he fell asleep on Tuesday, but Twitter isn't buying it.

Sweet dreams, Mr. Gizzi. It happens to everyone.
