(PatrioticPost.com)- According to reports, Biden’s SOTU address did not particularly impress Utah Republican Senator Mike Lee, who at one point tweeted, “He’s not well.”
Many people pointed out that Biden appeared to rush through much of his speech and ended up stumbling over many words.
Fox News reports that President Biden made a mistake in opening his State of the Union address when he referred to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, a Democrat from New York, as the “minority leader.”
Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky, is the current Senate Minority Leader.
According to a report, President Joe Biden boasted that his administration had built a strong economy before claiming, during his State of the Union address, that during the pandemic, the economy was in such dire straits that refrigerators and cell phones lost their jobs.
When Biden described the terrifying experiences of downtrodden phones and appliances, he was making reference to the global chip shortage.
Biden was supposed to mention that prices for refrigerators and mobile phones increased, not that they lost their jobs.
Although he couldn’t say her name in his speech, Biden awkwardly brought up Oksana Markarova, the Ukrainian ambassador to the US. He told her to stand so they could all look at her.
The president then strangely suggested that oil production could be phased out after just another ten years, making GOP Congress members laugh.
During an anecdote not included in the White House release of his prepared remarks, Biden said energy executives told him they are hesitant to increase domestic oil production because they are concerned the federal government will shut down refineries and oil wells.
‘We’ll need oil for at least another decade,’ Biden recalled trying to reassure their concerns.
Republican lawmakers, including House Speaker Kevin McCarthy of California, sitting behind Biden, could be seen laughing out loud at the remark.
