“Say that again”… Joe Biden makes another blunder in the middle of a speech

Another blunder for Joe Biden. The American head of state does not seem ready to reassure those who are worried about his physical and mental capacities, as evidenced by his latest speech. According to BFMTV, this speech made on Tuesday at the emergency operations center in Washington dealt with the extreme weather conditions in the United States. During his speech, the president seems to have adhered a little too faithfully to the text displayed on his teleprompter, mistakenly reciting the instruction “repeat that”.

“Extreme heat is the leading cause of weather-related death in the United States, surpassing floods, hurricanes and tornadoes combined,” he said, before adding, “repeat that, combined.” The scene, which was widely shared on social media, was described as “embarrassing,” “ridiculous” and even “distressing” by Internet users.

Not a first

This is not the first time that the American president has made such a mistake. In 2022, during a speech on abortion, the Democrat had declared “repeat the sentence”, a note that was intended to remind him to further emphasize a part of his text. Internet users had already reacted with much derision.

For some, this blunder could be the straw that broke the camel’s back. Between the confusion of names of foreign leaders, the alleged conversations with deceased people or the episodes of drowsiness during various events, Joe Biden is indeed accumulating road trips.

A difficult replacement

His disastrous debate with Donald Trump, during which the president visibly lost his wits on several occasions, had already prompted some supporters to sound the alarm. Even within the Democratic camp, calls to withdraw his candidacy are increasing. All that remains is to urgently identify a candidate who would have a chance of winning against the Republican. According to a recent survey conducted by Ipsos, only Michelle Obama would be likely to beat Donald Trump.
