Democrats are actually coming up with excuses for why Brandon abruptly walked out of a Medal of Honor ceremony at the White House on Tuesday.
Apparently, Brandon was trying to ‘cede the spotlight’ to the Vietnam hero.
Who actually believes this?
“I’ve never seen my former boss do that … never seen Pres. Bush do that. I’ve just not seen a commander-in-chief do that,” Trump’s former press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said on Fox News.
“Those speculating he wanted to cede the spotlight … I just don’t buy it,” Kayleigh McEnany said.

Brandon on Tuesday awarded the Medal of Honor to Vietnam War hero and helicopter pilot Captain Larry L. Taylor, United States Army, for conspicuous gallantry.
Larry L. Taylor received the highest honor for scooping up four of his fellow soldiers during a fierce firefight in Vietnam on June 18, 1968.
“Taylor was a first lieutenant on June 18, 1968, when he deployed in support of a patrol that had been surrounded by an enemy force. Braving intense fire in pitch black conditions, Taylor and his wingman made low-level attack runs. As they neared the end of their ammunition, Taylor learned that a plan to rescue the patrol had been canceled. So, Taylor decided to extract the team using his two-man Cobra helicopter — something the White House says had never been attempted, let alone accomplished.” CBS News reported.
“Once his team reached the extraction site, Taylor landed his Cobra under heavy fire, “with complete disregard for his personal safety,” as the White House put it. The soldiers climbed aboard and Taylor took them to a safe location. That day, Taylor rewrote the stories of the four men he saved for generations, the president said.” the outlet said.
It is important to note that Brandon received FIVE draft deferments and did not serve in the Vietnam War.
Out of nowhere, Brandon abruptly walked out of the Medal of Honor ceremony, even before the closing benediction.
Medal of Honor recipient Larry Taylor wiped a tear from his face and looked around confused as Brandon shuffled away.
Brandon is a complete disgrace. He was not ‘ceding the spotlight’ to this war hero.
