Joe Biden’s streak of bizarre and embarrassing gaffes continues.
While trying to tell a story about “people pulling up to McDonald’s” in New Jersey, Biden made another strange gaffe in the middle of a speech.
“We’re going to make sure high-speed Internet is affordable and available everywhere in America, including the nearly one in three New Jersey families that don’t have the internet subscription,” Biden said.
In an attempt to give an example of the internet problem, Biden appeared to get lost.
“How many times do you see people pulling up to McDonald’s sitting outside during the pandemic so they could do their homework because…” Biden said as he appeared to get confused.
Struggling to finish, Biden added, “…because they couldn’t get — get it off of their — their line.” Biden said.
“What Biden was probably trying to say is that some Americans were forced to use the free WiFi at the fast-food chain,” Western Journal notes.
Watch the clip:
Biden became visibly stuck for a moment, getting quiet before continuing his speech.
Did the president misread something the teleprompter said? Or did he completely forget what he was talking about?
He was slightly more successful when he tried to make the same point during a speech in Scranton, Pennsylvania, on Oct. 20.
“How many people did you see out in McDonald’s parking lots with their kids in their cars — because they get access to the internet — to be able to help the kid in school?” the president said. “What are we doing? This is the United States of America, dammit. What are we doing?”
