Well, that was awkward.
President Biden’s State of the Union was chock full of gaffes and cringe-worthy moments. But the highlight may be the Nancy shimmy. The Speaker of the House was caught awkwardly standing up while Joe was discussing soldiers breathing in toxic smoke from burn pits.
“And our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan have faced many dangers,” Biden said.
“One being stationed at bases, breathing in toxic smoke from burn pits. Many of you have been there. I’ve been in and out of Iraq and Afghanistan over 40 times. These burn pits that incinerate waste, the waste of war — medical and hazardous material, jet fuel and so much more.”
At the mention of “toxic smoke,” Pelosi appears to jump the gun on an applause line and break into a little shimmy. Radio host Clay travis shared the moment on Twitter, asking “Why is Nancy Pelosi so jazzed to celebrate toxic smoke from burn pits?!”
