Is Biden losing his mind in front of all of our eyes? Seems like it.
President Biden sparked widespread confusion on Friday when, during his closing remarks at a Connecticut summit focused on gun control reform, he used a phrase that is typically associated with the nation from which the United States had once sought independence.
According to Fox, as President Biden concluded his speech at the National Safer Communities Summit in West Hartford, he alerted the audience to an approaching storm, expressing regret that he wouldn’t be able to personally shake hands with all the attendees.
In addition, President Biden repeated an iconic line he had previously used in response to a student who questioned his fourth-place position in the 2020 Iowa caucuses:
“Is that the truth? Now, do not make a lie – as that scene in the John Wayne movie – don’t make me a dog-faced, lying, pony-soldier,” Biden said as he commented on the reported incoming storm.
“I will stand in front of each section – no, I really mean it — if you can see the camera they can see you. It is the least consequential part of this whole meeting for you, I promise,” Biden said.
In a perplexing manner, President Biden concluded, “All right. God Save the Queen, man,” before scanning the surroundings to determine the appropriate exit route from the stage, leaving observers puzzled.
As of September, the current monarch of the United Kingdom is King Charles III, following the passing of his mother, the highly regarded Queen Elizabeth II.
Connecticut, the state in which President Biden was delivering his speech, holds historical significance as one of the original 13 colonies that declared independence from Britain in 1776. Known as the ‘Constitution State,’ Connecticut ratified the founding document 235 years ago, making it the fifth state to do so. It is worth noting that President Biden’s home state of Delaware holds the distinction of being the first state to ratify the Constitution.
According to the pool report assigned to White House correspondent Todd Gillman from the Dallas Morning News, the final remark made by President Biden at the gun summit, “God save the queen, man,” left both the online viewers and the pool reporters puzzled. The report noted that several individuals had inquired about the reason behind his statement, but both Gillman and other pool reporters admitted to having no idea about its meaning or intention.
