Joe Biden made a gesture that appeared as if he shook hands with a ghost after a recent speech in Israel.
The president of the United States finished delivering an address before an audience in Israel when he turned to his right and placed his hand in a handshake-like motion. Another man on stage directed him toward his seat and sat with him after the speech. Whether or not he did attempt to shake hands with nobody is a mystery – leaving viewers to draw their own conclusions.
Do you think he shook hands with nobody? Comment below after watching.
Both conservative and liberal Twitter users weighed in on the president’s actions:
Some equated this to a situation with dementia:
I’ve taken care of dementia patients in the past, IDK who they are trying to fool that he’s fine. He’s going down faster than a sinking ship.— Chaotic Misfortune (@ChaoticMiss073) July 14, 2022
Liberals were quick to defend their president:
Thanks for supplying the video, which instantly refutes your idiotic accusation. He’s clearly asking which chair his host wants him to sit in. He starts with the “You go ahead” open hand, then points, then his host responds by showing him which chair he’d like Biden to sit in. 🤦♂️— Allan Lane (@AllanCLane) July 14, 2022
President Biden had his share of odd, scary and interesting moments during his visit in Jerusalem. RNC Research reported on a coughing fit he had during remarks during an East Jerusalem visit.
He also announced he would be “donating 1 million doses of COVID-19 to the West Bank and Gaza”.
Biden also got lost while walking of stage (again).
The president has had his share of gaffes, which according to some sources and opinions, have been getting worse with time.
