The footage was published by the C-SPAN TV channel. The head of the White House and the first lady came to the school in Washington to discuss the coronavirus pandemic and vaccination with students and parents.
During the speech of his wife, the president, standing next to her, turned around and walked away. He returned to her after a while, some viewers considered this gesture a public insult to a woman.
“Look, he leaves, and his wife continues to talk. <…> He shamed her,” wrote one of the Twitter users.
“But seriously, where did he go?” others asked.
“Probably, he just got bored,” the viewer joked.
“You don’t know why Biden left the frame. Maybe someone needed to talk to him urgently,” they suggested in the comments.
Some also admitted that the U.S. president decided to move away because of the bright sun.
