NEW YORK (VINnews) — During the course of a White House ceremony honoring a Vietnam veteran with the Medal Of Honor, President Biden wandered out before the end of the ceremony, prompting widespread criticism for his behavior.

The president received the backlash when he left the room immediately after he returned the salute of 81-year-old former Army captain Larry Taylor, who braved enemy gunfire to rescue an American patrol group with his helicopter in a 1968 battle during the Vietnam War. Biden ducked out of the ceremony before military chaplain Brig. Gen. William Green Jr. concluded it with a prayer, according to the New York Post.

“At least he didn’t check his watch this time,” Rep. Wesley Hunt (R., Texas) said on X,  formerly known as Twitter, referencing the time Biden looked at his watch during a ceremony for 13 American service members who died in a bombing amid his bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Biden also did not wear a mask while putting the medal around Taylor’s neck, even though White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said he would wear one around others after first lady Jill Biden tested positive for COVID-19. The president has tested negative for the virus, according to Jean-Pierre.

Biden’s awkward exit is the latest incident that could cast doubt on his ability to perform his leadership duties.

Approximately three-quarters of Americans believe that Biden’s age makes him unable to adequately serve a second term, according to recent polls from the Wall Street Journal and the AP.

These news stories are half-baked lies, and exaggeration. Most people are not interested in news. They only want to hear that which substantiates their beliefs. What we see on our so-called news channels are cherry picked stories with cherry picked “facts.”

Nebach. It’s not his fault. It’s his age. But it’s funny to think he was voted in. And he wants to run again.

HASHEM is showing us what a circus He can make from this world.

Tshuva.

What a dolt this man is. He needs to be told where to go when to go why he’s going and what to say otherwise he makes up the most outlandish lies.
