You may have witnessed Joe Biden’s senior moment last week when he gaffed while attempting to read from the teleprompter during a speech.
Instead of following the instructions, Biden unintentionally read them aloud. It said, “Repeat the line,” which instructed Biden to recite what he had just read. He usually behaves in this manner, and it has happened before.
This only serves to highlight how careless he is while delivering these lectures. He merely says the words that he sees, not even really understanding what is being said.
As was to be predicted, the internet exploded on Biden because it was the ideal time to do so. But the response that came from the White House was the part that was truly astounding.
One of his staffers in charge of communications, White House Assistant Press Secretary Emilie Simons, jumped onto Twitter to tell everybody that what we actually heard was not what he really said. Instead of saying “Repeat the line.” she alleges that Biden actually said, “Let me repeat that line.”
No. He said, "let me repeat that line."

I’ll be generous and even say that maybe that’s what the transcript bread and maybe that’s what he was supposed to say, but that’s not what he said. It’s as clear as day that he said “repeat the line”.
Of course, Simons was ridiculed over her tweet. Many people responded back to her even sharing another video from that very same speech in which he said something about “terminating the presidency” instead of “terminating the pregnancy”.
Can you tell us what he said here please? https://t.co/FHPx9PEDX5

But I’m sure we’re just hearing things here as well. I’m sure that it’s really just as clear as day that he said to terminate the pregnancy and we all just had a very bad hearing.
This is why his handlers try not to let him speak more than he needs to.
