President Biden freezes, appears confused at wreath-laying ceremony

November 12, 2023

President Joe Biden, who already struggles with his consistent age-related gaffes and embarrassing moments, just added another one to the list. 

This one was especially painful to watch, not to mention extremely awkward.

According to Fox News, the president was torched after he stumbled around, completely confused, during a wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unkown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetary on Saturday.

Biden appears to have pulled a Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) "freezing" moment during the sacred ceremony, which prompted immediate backlash and disgust.

What happened?

President Biden looked somewhat normal as the ceremony began. He laid the wreath in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier while Vice President Kamala Harris and others looked on.

But then the situation took an embarrassing turn for the worse.

Fox News noted:

Once given the wreath by a U.S. Army service member, the president transferred it to the stand in front of the tomb. As Biden turned away from the wreath, he hesitated, unsure of where to go. He turned around to face the service member.

Biden, clearly confused at that moment, waited for the U.S. Army officer to tell him where to go, as the elderly, often-confused president who still needed help getting off a stage had no clue what to do.

The military officer finally got the president back to standing in line next to VP Harris after several awkward moments.

Social media reacts

Biden's critics had a field day with the situation, with many pointing out how disrespectful Biden is when it comes to military gatherings and ceremonies, especially given the fact that he's the commander-in-chief.

"Time to go home. Pathetic at such a solemn ceremony. We shouldn't laugh at this. Instead, we should recognize the Commander-in-Chief is incapable of being the CnC. Someone stop this madness. Looking to you
@FLOTUS. Do you love him? Take him home," former Under Secretary of Homeland Security Michael D. Brown wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Lou Dobbs wrote, "This is our commander-in-chief—who will be meeting with Xi Jinping—how do you think that’ll go? Emotional Biden appears confused at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier."

And Democrats wonder why Biden is polling so pitifully. This is just plain sad.
