Joe Biden awarded the Medal of Honor to Army Captain Larry L. Taylor on Tuesday, but his actions during the ceremony have sparked outrage.
After presenting the military’s highest honor to Captain Taylor, Biden wandered offstage and left the Army veteran standing alone.
GB News posted the footage to YouTube, showing him leaving before the ceremony was finished as the audience clapped for Captain Taylor.
Conservative leaders and figures decried this behavior, with Fox News Host Sean Hannity questioning Biden’s ability to lead the nation during his monologue. He said, “According to a new Wall Street Journal poll, 73% of you, the American people, you believe Biden is too old to run for re-election.”
“Now, the same poll found that two-thirds of Democrats, they also think Joe Biden is too old for another term,” he added.
Then he noted, “Right on cue today, the president got confused and dazed, and well he walked out during a Medal of Honor ceremony before the event was even over.”
Hannity then concluded, “The simple truth. The complete reality is this – your President, Joe Biden, is incapable of doing even the most simple, the most basic tasks.”
While this topic has been discussed as election season kicks off, conservatives on X were not as kind.
Political commentator Rogan O’Handley called him a disgrace. He wrote, “Biden left our troops to be killed in Afghanistan. Military morale & recruiting is lowest in decades, He forced masks & unnecessary vaccines on them.”
“And now he just walked out on a Medal of Honor ceremony, the highest honor for a soldier.”
Combat Marine Joshua T. Hosler stated, “I FIND JOE BIDEN WALKING OUT IN THIS HERO’S MEDAL OF HONOR CEREMONY, CAPTAIN TAYLOR IS SHAMEFUL! BIDEN IS AN EMBARRASSMENT AND FAILURE AS PRESIDENT!”
Rep. Troy Nehls, R-Texas, said, “After receiving the medal, Biden left him alone on the stage— missing the concluding prayer.”
