President Joe Biden (D) faced mockery online late last week after he falsely claimed on the campaign trail that there are “54 states.”
Biden made the remarks Friday at the “Pennsylvania Democratic Party Reception” while talking about how the Democrats had success in the 2018 midterm elections by talking about health care.
“And, of course, they’re going try for their 499th time, or whatever the number is — they’re still determined to eliminate the Affordable Care Act,” Biden said.
“And, by the way, if they do, that means — not a joke, everybody,” Biden said. “That’s why we defeated it in 2018 when they tried to do it. We went to 54 states.”

Biden faced a lot of mockery in response to the comment with many expressing exhaustion at how many times incidents like this have occurred with the current president.
“Biden says there are 54 states in America,” comedian and actor Rob Schneider tweeted. “Next speech he will explain the 81 million votes…”
Writer Kelsey Bolar tweeted, “How much more of this are we supposed to tolerate?”
“This Pelosi mad lib keeps getting weirder and weirder but any way you slice it, crime is bad under Joe Biden in al 54 states,” Fox News Radio Host Jimmy Failla tweeted.
Attorney Jordan Sekulow tweeted, “The leader of the Democrat Party and unfortunately for us, the President.”
“Painful and embarrassing to watch,” political commentator John Cardillo tweeted. “IT’S. EVERY. TIME. HE. SPEAKS.”
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) responded: “Joe Biden now says there are 54 states. I guess if you count the states of denial, confusion, delusion and disaster that his Regime has caused he just might be on to something.”
