A mother who accepted the Medal of Valor for her fallen son has gone viral for her reaction after President Joe Biden handed her the medal during Wednesday’s ceremony.
NYPD officer Wilbert Mora and his partner Jason Rivera were gunned down in January of 2022 while responding to a family dispute in Harlem, New York. Officer Sumit Sulan, who also received a Medal of Valor, shot the gunman. Rivera died hours after the incident while Mora succumbed to his wounds four days later. Mora’s mother, Gabina Mora, accepted the medal on her son’s behalf.
Mora’s reaction has gone viral, initially seeming rather disinterested as Biden appeared to offer his condolences. As soon as Biden handed her the medal, however, she quickly looked over to Rivera’s widow and rolled her eyes.
