US President Joe Biden delivers another concerning gaff while announcing ‘reproductive rights action’ on national television.
The president was announcing new policy in response to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn abortion rights case Roe v Wade when he also read the teleprompter instructions on what to say.
Flanked on one side by Vice President Kamala Harris, Biden was reading the speech when he finished the sentence with the instructions:
‘The percentage of women who register to vote and cast a ballot is consistently higher than the percentage of the men who do so…End of Quote. Repeat the Line.’
The mistake caused more debate online on the topic of Biden’s mental state, coming hot on the heels of a series of absent-minded blunders in recent weeks, including putting a medal on backwards and falling off his bike.
