House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s giddy response to Joe Biden’s remarks about toxic burn pits leaves critics baffled. In a tweet on Wednesday, the president of Real Clear Politics, Tom Bevan, noted Pelosi’s movements looked even more bizarre in the light of morning.

Pelosi was seen rising in her seat at Biden’s State of the Union address as he spoke about U.S. soldiers breathing in toxic fumes from burn pits during deployment. Meanwhile, the Independent Journal Review’s Caleb Hull commented that the 81-year-old’s dance was the weirdest and creepiest thing he has ever seen.

That wasn’t the only eyebrow raising moment of Biden’s speech. Vice President Kamala Harris appeared mortified when he mixed up “Ukrainians” with “Iranians.” Camera footage showed Harris reacting to Biden’s biggest gaffe during the address.
This occurred when Biden claimed Russian President Vladimir Putin will “never gain the hearts and souls of the Iranian people.” Harris was seen mouthing words through clenched teeth and making a disturbed face as the camera panned toward her and Biden.

Harris was cropped out from the White House’s video on YouTube. However, the awkward moment was not missed on social media with conservative critics saying it’s the latest sign of Biden’s cognitive decline.
