(RepublicanInformer.com)- Over the weekend, President Joe Biden dropped to one knee while posing for a photo with Navy sailors after the commissioning of the USS Delaware submarine.
Why? Who knows? Joe Biden has a habit of kneeling like a kid in a yearbook photo every time he poses with a group of people.
After the commissioning ceremony where both Biden and his wife Jill spoke, the First Couple posed for a photo with the group of sailors. While everybody in the picture remained standing including Jill, there was old, dopey Joe front and center kneeling beside his standing wife.
Breitbart’s White House correspondent Charlie Spiering posted on Twitter a picture as the group shot was set up. Spiering tweeted that it is unclear why Joe keeps kneeling in group pictures, adding “but doing it in a photo with Navy sailors is bizarre.”
Yes, it is bizarre.
What kind of message does it send to the world that the Commander-in-Chief kneels while the rest of the people are standing.
It’s one thing for Joe to kneel when posing for a group shot with the WNBA champions or the World Series winners. It’s quite another to kneel like a doofus in front of the crew of the USS Delaware – especially since everybody else is standing.
Some suggest that Biden may drop to his knees in pictures because, being six feet tall, he thinks he needs to so the people behind him can be seen.
And maybe that’s the case.
But it doesn’t change the fact that it’s bizarre for him to do it when posing with US servicemen.
It isn’t commanding; it’s subservient.
At a time when the world is looking to the United States for leadership and strength, Biden posing on his knees doesn’t send a particularly encouraging message.
