There isn’t a day that goes by, where Joe Biden isn’t acting like a blathering mess.
During a news conference on Friday, President Biden made a humiliating mistake and the White House as they are tried to excuse it as “teleprompter gaffe”, but the excuse only drew more attention to the embarrassing moment.
While decrying the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, Biden said,
“One of the most important extraordinary parts of the decision, in my view, is the majority writes, and I quote — I’m going to quote now from the majority — ‘Women are not without electoral or political power,”
Then he had an “Anchorman” moment while Vice President Kamala Harris and Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra look on.
“It is noteworthy that the percentage of women who registered to vote and cast a ballot is significantly higher than the percentage of the men who do so, end of quote, repeat the line,” Biden said during the press and can even be seen leaning toward the camera as if to obtain a better look of the teleprompter.
Despite clear video evidence, White House assistant press secretary Emilie Simons claimed that Biden was exhorting himself to repeat the line rather than reading the teleprompter cue.
His Handler Emilie, lied through her teeth, and claims he said this:
“No. He said, let me repeat that line”
Surprisingly, Simons’ assertion is supported by the official White House transcript of Biden’s statements. However, the video once more demonstrates Biden’s ability to interpret teleprompter cues, as he states, “End of quote. Repeat the line,” before starting to repeat the quote.
All these liars do is spread disinformation all day long to shield the president from genuinely valid concerns about his mental health and ability to govern.
That even Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ spokesperson Christina Pushaw slammed Simons, “Everyone can see the video and hear what he said, yet you are lying about it. Do you think 1984 was an instruction manual?”

Oh wow you were Adam Schiff’s comms director before this?!?! You literally get paid to lie for a living.
Is the Russian collusion still hiding in plain sight?

Why are you lying to the American people while collecting a taxpayer funded paycheck? You should be fired. Immediately.

How does it feel to treat Americans like idiots in exchange for feeling important because of your title? How does it feel to lie to the country to further your own ambition? Are you even slightly embarrassed to do it?

It would be something that people would forget about by the end of the day, but when you brazenly lie about it, that keeps it around longer.

Can you post a video of the part where he says “let me”? Because none of us hear that.

Your courageous willingness to unhesitatingly bring this utterly predictable mega-ratio down on your own head for your cause makes you the kind of scheming, soulless prevaricator @TheDemocrats will always need. pic.twitter.com/S0aVWoTg7Y

Here are some comments from folks online:
“Emilie, do you think we don’t have ears or something? He did NOT say ‘Let me repeat that line” Please go back and re-listen to the Alzheimer’s patient.”
“Yes, I totally believe you and your boss is definitely not a vegetable.”
“how much acid did you do today, emilie?”
“Everyone can see the video and hear what he said, yet you are lying about it. Do you think 1984 was an instruction manual?”
“We can literally hear what he said in the video”
“Even if you suppose that is what he was supposed to have said, or what he meant to say, it is absolutely not what he actually said. The video is right there. He says, “End of quote. Repeat the line.””
“and he didn’t even repeat the line LOL”
“Now you’re putting words in his mouth…”
“Hey im not sure if you’re aware of this but Greg posted the video and everyone can see it and he did not say “let me repeat the line” nor did he actually repeat anything”
White House transcript of Biden remarks is now incorrectly aligned with what this WH assistant press secretary falsely claimed on Twitter, despite the video showing Biden clearly stating “End of quote. Repeat the line.” & *not* “Let me repeat the line.”https://t.co/fJrzgfdbEy https://t.co/GX3zftIEtB pic.twitter.com/snrRHnHRIr
