Republican member of the House of Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene believes that “it’s incredibly embarrassing.”
The U.S. President Joe Biden is in an awkward situation again. Concluding his speech on Thursday in the state of North Carolina, he turned around and extended his hand to shake an empty place. The video shows that this gesture could not have been addressed to anyone, since there was no one nearby.
After that, Biden, apparently, could not immediately find a way out, so he took several steps in the wrong direction. The public immediately reacted to the curiosity, including Republican member of the House of Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene (from Georgia). “Our president tried to shake hands with literally no one. It’s incredibly embarrassing. He leads our country. That’s enough,” she wrote on her Twitter page, posting a video of the performance.
Previously, the 79-year-old leader of the American administration has repeatedly found himself in an awkward situation. He made a slip of the tongue when pronouncing the surname of Russian leader Vladimir Putin, practically replaced the word “escalation” with the word “vaccination,” confused Afghanistan with Ukraine in an interview, and also mispronounced the abbreviation RAF, denoting the Royal Air Force of Great Britain.
