Social media on Tuesday night reacted to numerous flubs from President Joe Biden’s first State of the Union address, some commenting on the president “slurring” his words and losing his train of thought.

“Saucers. Squinting. Slurring,” Mollie Hemingway commented early on in the president’s speech.

“Biden: ‘Putin will never gain the hearts and minds of the Iranian people!’ That’s a relief,” Ann Coulter snarked.

“Is anyone else concerned that the President of the United States can barely speak?” questioned Matt Walsh.

“Biden’s speechwriters are not doing him any favors with some of these tongue twister sentences. #SOTU,” noted Noam Blum.


“Same, girl, same. #SOTU,” commented Karol Markowicz, captioning a photo of a perplexed Vice President Kamala Harris.

“OMG did he just call GM ‘gem,’” Markowicz added in another post.

Hemingway also generally reacted, “Even by the standard of an audience full of politicians, something feels so fake and forced in their ‘enthusiastic’ response.”

Most notably, Biden flubbed when he called the Ukrainian people the “Iranian people,” The Daily Wire highlighted.

“To our fellow Ukrainian Americans who forge a deep bond that connects our two nations we stand with you,” Biden said. “Putin may circle Kyiv with tanks, but he will never gain the hearts and souls of the Iranian people. He will never extinguish their love of freedom. He will never weaken the resolve of the free world. ”


The president fumbled on other words and appeared to lose his train of thought numerous times, too.
