In a puz­zling moment dur­ing the solemn 80th anniver­sary com­mem­o­ra­tion of the D‑Day land­ings in France, Pres­i­dent Joe Biden made a move to take a seat just as Defense Sec­re­tary Lloyd Austin was being intro­duced to the gath­ered dignitaries.

The odd inci­dent occurred as Biden and French Pres­i­dent Emmanuel Macron were greet­ing World War II vet­er­ans who had par­tic­i­pat­ed in the Nor­mandy inva­sion. As the mil­i­tary band played somber music, Biden sud­den­ly bent his knees, appear­ing to pre­pare to sit down.

This prompt­ed First Lady Jill Biden to cov­er her mouth, lead­ing to spec­u­la­tion that she may have been qui­et­ly try­ing to advise her hus­band against the impromp­tu seat­ing attempt. As Biden squat­ted down, the music sud­den­ly cut out and a loud­speak­er announced that Austin would now speak, caus­ing Biden to pause in his half-seat­ed position.

The pres­i­dent then slight­ly ele­vat­ed him­self, as if to stand, before low­er­ing him­self back down to the chair. The unusu­al moment raised ques­tions about Biden’s com­fort and aware­ness of the pro­to­col dur­ing the solemn cer­e­monies hon­or­ing the sac­ri­fices of the “Great­est Gen­er­a­tion” on D‑Day.

Biden, 81, is known to be atten­tive to the needs of guests at his pub­lic events, often encour­ag­ing those stand­ing to take a seat if avail­able. How­ev­er, the tim­ing of his appar­ent desire to sit down dur­ing the D‑Day com­mem­o­ra­tion caused a brief, but notice­able, dis­rup­tion in the proceedings.

The inci­dent came amid height­ened scruti­ny of Biden’s health and cog­ni­tive abil­i­ties, with some med­ical experts call­ing for him to under­go a cog­ni­tive test ahead of his first pres­i­den­tial debate with Don­ald Trump, 77, in the upcom­ing election.

The D‑Day cer­e­monies in Nor­mandy were a poignant reminder of the sac­ri­fices made by Amer­i­can and Allied forces to lib­er­ate Europe from Nazi tyran­ny. Biden’s appar­ent momen­tary lapse dur­ing the event, and Jill Biden’s appar­ent attempt to guide him, added an unex­pect­ed and some­what bizarre ele­ment to an oth­er­wise solemn occasion.
