This is why Joe Biden’s staffers mute his speeches or turn off the tv when he’s speaking.
Joe Biden delivered remarks before signing proclamations to restore national parks and monuments Friday afternoon.
Biden coughed as he attacked Trump and struggled to read his teleprompter.
At one point Joe Biden veered off script and that’s when things went south.
Biden recalled a bizarre story about a little girl with a teddy bear he encountered when he was on the campaign stump.
“I gotta tell you a quick story,” Biden said with a smug look on his face. “When I was running for office, I’m embarrassed I can’t remember exactly which state I was in, but a gentleman and I think it was his wife and a little girl who said ‘could I talk to you?’ – And she had this… it looked like a teddy bear and she said ‘could I talk to you?’ – She wasn’t sure what to call me since I wasn’t elected yet.”
Biden continued, “She said ‘I want to give you something. I want to give you some bears ears…she said ‘you gotta promise me, you gotta promise me you’ll protect the bears ears.”
Joe Biden said he was confused by the little girl’s request so her dad chimed in and said “you know, a national park.’ [Bears Ears National Monument in Utah]
