The man is clearly not drunk. It looks like a medical condition to me, whether that is grounds for stepping down from the function? Who knows? If its some kind of degenrative motor disease that doesn't affect the brain, then probably not.

One other thing that people have to realise, the EU has very limited powers over sovereign European states. Nothing at all like the federal US government has over the US states.

well hopefully in the next election the people are able to vote him out of power. pretty bad to show up drunk at a NATO meeting like that.

Let me guess, you think that the EU is unelected?

Is the EU president drunk on alcohol or power?

probably both.

He's not the EU president.

https://ec.europa.eu/commission/commissioners/2014-2019/president_en

he's not?

Wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/President_of_the_European_Union

The official title President of the European Union (or President of Europe) does not exist, but there are a number of presidents of European Union institutions, including:

  • the President of the European Council (since 1 December 2014, Donald Tusk)

  • the President of the European Commission (since 1 November 2014, Jean-Claude Juncker)

  • the President of the European Parliament (since 17 January 2017, Antonio Tajani)

  • okay, thanks.

    well hopefully in the next election the people are able to vote him out of power. pretty bad to show up drunk at a NATO meeting like that.

    There's a fool-proof way to tell if something a conservative/right-wing/Republican said is true or not. If they call it "fake news", you can be sure it's the solid truth.

    He's from the EU, not NATO and even if he was, I don't think he's on active duty.

    How stupid are you to keep listening to the people who sell you this garbage? Of all the people who thinks you're a moron, they mean you most harm.

    If you're going to make something that futuristic (and that big) may as well go full electric.


    First thing I noticed is if that guy slides back at all he'll actually destroy himself, it needs a back/ass guard.

    Bike looks cool though.
