Biden Raises Eyebrows At D-Day Ceremony, Gets Escorted Away As Macron Greets Veterans

The D-Day ceremonies on June 6 this year mark the 80th anniversary since the launch of 'Operation Overlord', a vast military operation by Allied forces in Normandy, which turned the tide of World War II, eventually leading to the liberation of occupied France and the end of the war against Nazi Germany.

President Joe Biden raised eyebrows while attending the 80th anniversary of the D-Day invasion in Normandy, France — and then apparently had to be escorted away from the festivities while French President Emmanuel Macron remained on-site to greet the veterans.

At one point during the ceremonies, Biden appeared confused about whether he was supposed to remain standing or sit down, resulting in an awkward half-squat as he looked behind him to see where the chair might be. First lady Jill Biden, who quickly raised one hand in front of her mouth, seemed like she could be feeding him directions.

“TFW you realize you had 3 cups of coffee and a bran muffin for breakfast,” @IowaHawkBlog posted.

“You should see him behind closed doors,” Stephen Miller added. “Sharp and engaged.”

“At this point, these aren’t gaffes. These are serious issues of mental lapses. Why Democrats are doing this is beyond me,” Pradheep Shanker posted.

A short time later, first lady Jill Biden escorted the president away from the ceremonies while the French president and first lady remained behind, greeting the veterans in attendance — many of whom were over 100 years old.

“The drug cocktail team has done all it can do. The limits have been reached, and they aren’t pretty,” RedState’s Bonchie posted.

“The vets look more with it than Biden,” Ben Domenech added.

Several of Biden’s defenders jumped in to claim that it was not a big deal because Biden had previously greeted some of the veterans who attended the ceremonies – but other video clips later surfaced of him looking equally lost when he was taken to visit Omaha Beach, the beachhead that saw the greatest number of casualties on D-Day.


In yet another clip, Biden could be heard explaining to Macron that his “advance team” had directed him to leave the venue first.
