President Joe Biden engaged in what many observers thought was another round of odd behavior as he prepared to give a speech in South Carolina over the weekend.
As noted by Rare and according to a clip posted online by the Republican National Committee’s research arm, Biden appears to be kicking at the podium while saying, “If you’re wondering what I’m kicking here, I’m kicking the stand-in. It’s not working.”
He then spun around backward and attempted to kick the stand again from that angle. “How bout that? Alright, maybe I’ll stand on it… I’ll be 6’4,” he said after turning back around to face the audience.
Biden also appeared to slur his words and struggle to speak, which has been occurring more frequently during his public events.
Rare added: “When talking about the deficit, Biden began [leaning] in and delivered a creepy whisper. Biden continues to claim that he reduced the deficit by $1.7 Trillion, which is false. The deficit fell because of the expiration of COVID spending. Biden’s policies have actually increased the deficit.”
Noted RNC Research: “He’s lying — again. Moody’s Analytics says ‘the actions of the [Biden] administration and Congress have undoubtedly resulted in higher deficits, not smaller ones.”
Later in the speech, Biden can be seen stammering and struggling for words, perhaps because he lost his place with the teleprompter, though the real reason isn’t known.
The most recent one came earlier in the week when he uttered “God Save the Queen” after a speech about gun control. In interviews with Axios, several aides discussed Biden’s “wacky phrases,” which are often confused with his “quirky aphorisms,” according to the outlet, which simply concluded it is “Biden being Biden.”
Fox News noted further: “Biden bizarrely ended a speech about gun control in Connecticut with the words ‘God Save the Queen’ after noting that he would not be able to shake hands with attendees because a storm was approaching. He also uttered another phrase he once used toward a student who questioned him about his fourth-place standing in the 2020 Iowa caucuses.”
“Is that the truth? Now, do not make a lie – as that scene in the John Wayne movie – don’t make me a dog-faced, lying, pony-soldier,” Biden said at the time.
“As a proud Irishman whose ancestors probably weren’t fans of the crown, Biden may use the phrase more as sarcasm,” Axios claimed.
In the interviews, one of Biden’s aides said in reference to the ‘Queen’ remark they “still aren’t sure” what he meant.
The weird response once again triggered discussions about Biden’s advanced age and what appears to be his deteriorating mental status because, during the same speech, he appeared to need assistance in leaving the stage.
“…[T]he the scene became even more bizarre immediately following the gaffe. Biden seemed unaware of where he should exit, pointing at the people off-stage and asking them where he should go,” the Western Journal reported. “Eventually, an aide came up and helped him off, and Biden awkwardly jogged across the stage to make an exit.”
