President Joe Biden is facing criticism for his Veterans Day message, with many accusing him of using the day for a “political campaign.” The 80-year-old president shared a message on a social media platform on November 11, but his actions have been labeled as “disgusting” by his detractors.
In the video message, President Biden used quotes from former President Donald Trump that were seen as derogatory towards veterans. This move was seen by many as an attempt to show respect for fallen soldiers on Veterans Day, but critics argue that it was distasteful and politically motivated.
One citizen expressed their outrage on social media, stating, “The fact that you make a day remembering vets into a political ad is absolutely disgusting. I can’t wait to see you lose.” Another user accused Biden of warmongering and claimed that he was a disgrace to the troops and all Americans.
The backlash intensified after a video of President Biden appearing disoriented and confused during a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington Cemetery went viral. In the video, Biden is seen hesitating and seeking direction from a service member before rejoining the ceremony.
The incident has been described as “embarrassing” and “pathetic” by social media users, who argue that it undermines Biden’s credibility as the President of the United States.
During his speech at the Arlington ceremony, Biden praised America’s veterans, calling them the “steel spine of this nation” and expressing gratitude for their sacrifices.
The criticism against President Biden comes amidst ongoing debates and divisions in the United States, with political tensions running high. Veterans Day, a day meant to honor and remember those who have served in the military, has become another battleground for political disagreements.
