Earlier this week, we reported how US President Donald Trump and FLOTUS were invited for summer cocktails by the Belgian Prime Minister to a Brussels park during the NATO summit (see our related coverage). The event took place on Wednesday evening.

As we said in the article, the Trump couple refused the alcohol offered. Others clearly didn’t as scandal has now erupted in Brussels after footage, clearly shot by an invitee at the summit, shows how EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker looked ‘drunk’ and having to be helped to walk by, amongst others, French president Emmanuel Macron, Portuguese Prime Minister António Costa and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte to allow him to keep his footing and not fall over.

Mr Juncker’s cabinet responded to the clips that have since gone viral in EU circles by saying that the Commission President was suffering from a ‘bad back.’

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="nl" dir="ltr">Haha, die kop van Orban als ie de ladderzatte Juncker passeert: &quot;Ik ga niet helpen, ik heb niets gezien hoor&quot;. Maar evengoed schan-da-lig dat zo&#39;n alcoholist de hand boven het hoofd gehouden wordt. <a href="https://t.co/lUjbxGeBoA">pic.twitter.com/lUjbxGeBoA</a></p>&mdash; Mirjam152 (@Mirjam152) <a href="https://twitter.com/Mirjam152/status/1017446260293414917?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">July 12, 2018</a></blockquote>

Critics however pointed out that this is not the first time Mr Juncker’s ‘drunk’ antics have been shown. In fact, here he is in the same manner during a 2015 summit in Riga, Latvia.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="it" dir="ltr">Con uno così stiamo a posto. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Juncker?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Juncker</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/drunk?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#drunk</a> <a href="https://t.co/pUrCzt5Ppg">pic.twitter.com/pUrCzt5Ppg</a></p>&mdash; Antonio Grizzuti (@AntonioGrzt) <a href="https://twitter.com/AntonioGrzt/status/1001898440169795584?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">May 30, 2018</a></blockquote>

Former EU Commissioner for Trade Mr Karel De Gucht was one of the first to admit to the EU press that these images hurt the 28-country-bloc: “This is extremely hurtful for the credibility of Europe. A sad affair.”

“The dignity of the position of EU President is already difficult enough as it is, it would be good if Mr. Juncker shows the continent in a positive manner. If the leader of the European Union shows this kind of behavior, this is a very sorry state of affairs indeed.”

Is the EU a member of NATO?

Didn't think EU had an army, but maybe wrong.
