On Friday, Twitter users overwhelmingly criticized President Joe Biden for yet another mistake that was made by the world leader. These users included Elon Musk and Sen. Tom Cotton, a Republican from Arkansas.
In response to the Supreme Court’s decision on June 24 to overturn Roe v. Wade, Vice President Joe Biden on Friday signed an executive order that will provide women seeking abortions with some safeguards, albeit limited ones.
Biden addressed the nation and the press to explain his order and to express his commitment to protecting a woman’s right to have an abortion. He was flanked by Vice President Kamala Harris and Secretary of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra. Becerra was also present. Harris was the Vice President.
During the address, however, it seemed as though Biden was uncertain of what to read out loud off the teleprompter and what not to read out loud.
After reading what appeared to be stage directions, Biden then delivered a phrase that was displayed on the teleprompter, which many people who use Twitter considered to be an extremely funny moment.
He said ,”It is noteworthy that the percentage of women who registered to vote and cast a ballot is consistently higher than the percentage of the men who do so. End of quote.”
After that, he proceeded to read the subsequent set of instructions aloud.
Biden then proceeded to recite the quote a second time before moving on to the subsequent portion of the presentation as if nothing had happened. “Repeat the line,” he instructed.
