It comes just days after Biden, 81, appeared to look lost while alongside French President Emmanuel Macron at a D-Day commemoration event in Normandy.

Footage shared by the RNC Research group showed Biden grinning while Harris and members of George Floyd’s family danced.

Biden was just standing still while Harris was dancing to the beat of the music.

The president was motionless in the footage for around 20 seconds before Floyd’s brother Philonise put his arm around him.

Biden then raised his hand before giving Philonise a fist bump.

Another clip went viral that showed a tired-looking Biden drinking what looked like Gatorade.

The president then gave a rambling speech which wasn’t coherent at some points.

“The day reminds us that we have a helluva lot more work to do. Let’s keep marching. Let’s keep the faith,” Biden told the crowds.

Last year, Biden took a tumble at the Air Force Academy graduation ceremony.

Biden has also confused the leaders of countries while delivering rambling addresses to the nation.

Last week, Biden seemed to fumble for his seat while on stage with the Macrons and his wife Jill at the D-Day event.

But, there was no chair behind Biden.

What are Trump and Biden’s platforms?

A look at what issues matter most to the candidates.

Biden’s talking points:

  • The importance of democracy after the January 6 attack on the Capitol
  • Advocate for abortion rights after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade with a 6-3 judgment in 2022
  • His Build Back Better plan, the $2.2 trillion infrastructure spending bill introduced in 2021
  • Support for Ukraine and Israel while they are at war
  • Highlight the strong US economy and low unemployment rates during his presidency

Trump’s talking points:

  • Slam issues at the US-Mexico border, which was a critical talking point for his 2016 win
  • Criticize the slew of criminal and civil lawsuits filed against him
  • Applaud the Trump-appointed Supreme Court justices who overturned Roe after the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg
  • Discuss a plan to end the war between Russia and Ukraine, although he hasn’t said which country he wants to win
  • Advocate for parents’ rights to regulate and restrict discussion of gender, sexuality, and race in schools

Biden looked like he was crouching down before Jill then put her hand over her mouth.

It looked like she was going to tell him something.

It’s not known if she uttered anything to the president.

Questions continue to swirl over Biden’s health and competency for office – just months before Americans go to the polls.

And polling suggests Biden’s re-election bid could be tricky.

ON A KNIFE-EDGE

Real Clear Politics polling suggests Trump would win the election if it was held tomorrow.

Trump has leads over his rival in all of the seven battleground states that will decide who ends up in the White House.

The brash tycoon has a lead of more than five points in North Carolina and Nevada.

Trump’s lead is more slender in the likes of Wisconsin and Michigan – states which Biden won in 2020.

Trump has had a polling lead for months – despite the four indictments leveled against him and being convicted of falsifying business documents.

And, Biden’s job approval is lower than what Trump’s, Obama’s, and George W. Bush’s were at this stage of their respective presidencies.
