The Biden White House appears to have quietly buried another flub by President Biden in a transcript of his comments after he accidentally read the instructions off his teleprompter.
The 79-year-old president said aloud, “repeat the line”, the Daily Wire reported.
White House hides Biden teleprompter flub
Biden appears to have gotten mixed up while he was fulminating about abortion. Quoting from the Supreme Court’s recent opinion ending Roe v. Wade, Biden said, “’Women are not without electoral or political power. It is noteworthy that 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.”
Apparently, Biden’s handlers wanted him to repeat the quote for rhetorical effect. But before doing just that, Biden actually said, “repeat the line.”

But the White House record of Biden’s comments says, “let me repeat the line.” White House Assistant Press Secretary Emelie Simons also claimed that Biden actually said, “let me repeat the line,” but many were skeptical.
“They are spitting in your face & telling you it’s rain,” YouTuber Viva Frei wrote.
The Biden charade
While Biden is ostensibly the president, he has been known to leave his aides racing to revise his public statements.
In a notable case, Biden’s staff dismissed his call for Vladimir Putin to be overthrown as an effusion of emotion rather than an expression of U.S. policy.
Biden was recently spotted reading note cards with detailed commands like, “YOU take YOUR seat.”
The obvious, sad truth is that Biden is too old to be president, and every time his staff is put in the painful position of denying what everyone can see with their own eyes, the administration loses a little bit of its credibility.
