President Joe Biden has hopped across the pond to visit Ireland, and upon landing in Belfast appeared to push past Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Rishi Sunak “to salute the old white guy.”
According to commentary on a clip that quickly went viral, it seems that the president may not have recognized the prime minister, giving him a polite handshake before visibly trying to move him aside. The leader can be seen sidling up to Biden once again, likely confused as to why he was so unceremoniously dismissed by the visiting president.

Another clip more clearly shows Biden’s entourage, which includes his son Hunter Biden.
Painful to watch.
Sunak jumps the queue to greet Biden.
Biden treats Sunak like a third wheel.

Social media rushed to comment on the bizarre clip:
It could just be his inner racist expressing itself.

Some, however, didn’t appear to think anything was wrong with what Biden did in the video:
Inaccurate information, fake news.

Sunak needs to get some class. I’m no Biden fan but this is pathetic.

As subtle as a kick in the bollox.
Loved the way he shoved the Tory Tax Whisperer out of the way.
Biden is a man of Old School Principles.
