Political commentators and others were baffled Tuesday by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s, D-Calif., moment of “bizarre” applause during President Biden’s State of the Union address.
A smiling Pelosi awkwardly stood up and rubbed her hands together as Biden was talking about the soldiers stationed in Afghanistan and elsewhere “breathing in toxic smoke from burn pits.” Political personalities and more were quick to point out the moment on Twitter.
Tom Bevan of Real Clear Politics called the moment “bizarre” while others called it strange and “must see TV.”
Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., commented on the widely circulated video as well, saying, “So weird.”
“And they come home, many of the world’s fittest and best-trained warriors in the world, never the same,” Biden said. “Headaches. Numbness. Dizziness. A cancer that would put them in a flag-draped coffin.”
