White House Claims Biden Abruptly Left Medal of Honor Ceremony Due to COVID

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed Joe Biden left the Medal of Honor recipient’s ceremony early because he wanted to “minimize his close contact with attendees” due to COVID-19.

Biden’s early departure angered some viewers, which many believed to be another one of Biden’s strange episodes; perhaps he forgot his instruction manual again?

Watch

The ceremony on Tuesday was to honor 81-year-old Vietnam veteran Army Captain Larry L. Taylor for conspicuous gallantry serving as a team leader of a helicopter light-fire team that rescued a patrol team surrounded by the enemy.

Not long after placing the award around Taylor’s neck, Biden abruptly left the room before the ceremony ended.

However, Jean-Pierre claimed Biden purposely walked out early to minimize the risk of him spreading COVID to others.

Watch

While Biden tested negative for COVID, first lady Jill Biden tested positive on Monday.

“He left when there was a pause in the program in order to minimize — to minimize his close contact with attendees, who are who are about to participate in a reception,” Jean-Pierre said.

“And as you all reported that, and noticed that he left, when there was a pause in the program because again, he wanted to minimize certainly his impact on folks who were there,” she said.

But Jean-Pierre had no explanation for why Biden wore a mask during the ceremony, and then took it off in the middle of the ceremony, not putting it back on again.

“The President took off his mask, as I said he would deliver incredibly powerful remarks about this Captain Taylor, and what he did in service to our nation,” Jean-Pierre said.

“And we wanted to honor the captain. And for a brief time afterwards, he also didn’t have his mask on, as you just laid out. And he left as planned.”

The White House Press Secretary also claimed Biden was masked while spending a “good amount of time” with Taylor and his family before the ceremony.

But she failed to explain why Biden had his mask off while standing beside Taylor and placing the award around his neck.

“The President, in every way that we could yesterday, followed the CDC guidelines,” she said.

Rep. Wesley Hunt (R-TX) slammed Biden after the event:

“At least he didn’t check his watch this time,” he posted on X, referring to Biden checking his watch while receiving the bodies of fallen service members after the disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal.
