The White House on Wednesday came up with a new excuse for Brandon after he abruptly left the Medal of Honor ceremony.
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.
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 total disgrace, but his defenders stooped to a new low and came up with all kinds of excuses for his reprehensible behavior.
The Democrats claimed Brandon was trying to ‘cede the spotlight’ to the Vietnam War hero.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre absurdly claimed Brandon “planned” to walk out of the ceremony early in order to “minimize his close contact with attendees.”
“He left when there was a pause in the program in order to minimize his close contact with attendees who are about to participate in a reception,” Karine Jean-Pierre said.
Who actually believes this?
Karine Jean-Pierre says it “was planned” for Brandon to abruptly leave yesterday’s Medal of Honor ceremony before it was over:
