Biden scorched for fumbled attempt to remember Blinken quote: ‘Embarrassment on the world stage’

A video of President Biden being unable to complete a thought during an event in Israel went viral on Wednesday.

Biden spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as the country wages war with Hamas following the latter’s terrorist attack on Oct. 7. During the sit-down with Netanyahu, Biden looked down and began to recite a quote from current Secretary of State Antony Blinken that he wasn’t able to finish.

“You know, years ago, I asked the Secretary of State when he and I were working in the Senate to write something for me and he said, he wrote a line that I think is appropriate. He said, ‘It’s not we lead, uh, it’s not just, uh…’ Well, I won’t go into it, I’ll wait ’til later, taking too much time,” Biden said.

Biden’s demeanor and jumbled story did not go unnoticed by several X users throughout the day.
