(PatrioticPost.com)- Like most people, you probably don’t follow President Joe Biden’s speeches very closely…but we’re here to keep you informed on the lunacy found within them and his constantly mishaps and gaffes that he makes during each one. On Wednesday, the president delivered a speech to the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, and attempted to crack a joke once made by former President Ronald Reagan.
And it went badly.
It went so badly, in fact, that Biden had a Jeb Bush moment and literally encouraged the crowd to clap.
The reason the joke went down so badly is not because it was made in poor taste, and not because it wasn’t funny…but because he slipped up over his words and it didn’t make any sense.
“I can only assume that you’ll enjoy educating your family about how the Coast Guard is quote ‘The hard nucleus around the Navy forms in times of war,’” President Biden joked.
BIDEN: "The Coast Guard is 'the hard nucleus around the Navy, forms in times of war.' You are, you're a really dull class. Come on, man. Is the sun getting to ya? I would think you'd have an opportunity when I say that about the Navy to clap." pic.twitter.com/udfXQ33bb9

What President Biden was meant to say is that the United States Coast Guard is the hard nucleus “about which” the Navy forms in times of war. If he’d have said that, then perhaps it would have made sense, and perhaps the crowd would have liked it. But they didn’t, and he brushed it off as the audience being dull.
“You’re a really dull class. Come on, man,” Biden said. He then asked if the sun was getting to them, and said that he thought they would have an opportunity to clap when he said something like that about the Navy.
It prompted some people to just go ahead and applaud him to get it over and done with…
If that wasn’t a disaster enough, though, President Biden then quoted Chinese communist dictator and mass murderer Mao Tse Tung, who is responsible for up to 80 million deaths in China. Biden said that women “hold up half the sky” as he praised the women of the Coast Guard.
Biden praises growing number of women graduating from U.S. Coast Guard Academy, noting Class of 2021 is over one-third female: "There's a saying…'Women hold up half the world.' It's an absolutely stupid position not to make sure sure they represent at least half of what we do." pic.twitter.com/ZJu6drshAb
