By SleepSchool Editorial Staff

Despite studies showing links with diabetes, high blood pressure and weight gain, sleeping just a few hours a night was a badge of honor long before Donald Trump’s repeated — and very flattering — public comments on his own ability to get by on three or four hours. In Springfield on Monday, he touted this trait, saying, “I have a great temperament for success. … You know, I’m not a big sleeper, I like three hours, four hours, I toss, I turn, I beep-de-beep, I want to find out what’s going on.”

This isn’t a partisan issue — Bill Clinton’s legend rests in part on his tolerance for deprivation, and CEOs and inventors (Yahoo CEO and ) let it be known that they’re part of the club. Most of us have friends, neighbors or, sigh, co-workers who broadcast their superhuman sleeplessness — or simply send emails at 5 a.m. to let us know how on top of it they are.”
