President Joe Biden may have just suffered some kind of Freudian slip.
Breitbart News reports that Biden said “terminate the presidency” instead of “terminate the pregnancy.”
The situation occurred on Friday as Biden was delivering a speech on abortion. During that speech, as part of his argument for the legalization of abortion, Biden brought up a report of a ten-year-old girl from Ohio who had to travel to Indiana in order to get an abortion.
The Indy Star reported:
On Monday three days after the Supreme Court issued its groundbreaking decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, Dr. Caitlin Bernard, an Indianapolis obstetrician-gynecologist, took a call from a colleague, a child abuse doctor in Ohio. Hours after the Supreme Court action, the Buckeye state had outlawed any abortion after six weeks. Now this doctor had a 10-year-old patient in the office who was six weeks and three days pregnant.
It was while commenting on this report that Biden made his gaffe.
“Ten years old!” Biden said. “And she was forced to have to travel out of the state of Indiana to seek to terminate the presidency and save her life.”
Biden made no attempt to correct his mistake. In fact, it was clear that Biden was oblivious to what he had said.
The gaffe was not his only one of the evening. Biden just couldn’t seem to figure out the teleprompter.
Fox News reports:
During the speech, however, Biden appeared unaware as to what and what not to read out loud from the teleprompter. In a moment that many Twitter users found highly amusing, Biden read a quote from the teleprompter and then read what appeared to be stage directions. He stated, “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.”
Fox continues: “He then read the next set of directions out loud. ‘Repeat the line,’ Biden said, before reciting the quote again and continuing to the next part of the address like nothing happened.”
Can you believe that this is the man who is running our country? I can’t.
As Elon Musk put it, including photos from Anchorman, “Whoever controls the teleprompter is the real President!”
