Merkel celebrates election victory by sleeping in until 5 AM


BERLIN – Angela Merkel, after winning a fourth term as chancellor of Germany and leader of the free world, reportedly afforded herself the luxury to sleep in until 5 am, skipping her usual 4 am wake up call to waste an hour in celebratory sleep. 

Merkel will then continue her victory celebration with a full day of work balancing Europe’s budgets, protecting human rights, and sustaining democracy worldwide.
