Politicians and their encounters with teleprompter gaffes are not new and the latest to create an online buzz involves US President Joe Biden. His glaring mistake while delivering a speech at the White House has gone viral.
As the president, alongside Vice President Kamala Harris, spoke to the press about protecting women’s reproductive rights and the recent Supreme Court order, he made a mistake, accidentally saying “end of quote, repeat line” when he finished. a sentence.
“It is noteworthy that the percentage of women who register to vote and vote is consistently higher than the percentage of men who do – end of quote, repeat the line. Women are not without electoral and, or, political power – let me be precise: no and, or – or political power,” Biden is heard saying, standing before the pulpit.
The gaffe quickly caught the attention of attentive netizens, who blamed it on a misreading of the speech on a teleprompter. “Women are not left without electoral or political power,” he repeated again for emphasis.

Soon, many, including Republican supporters, mocked POTUS while questioning his sincerity on the matter. However, many also defended the president and argued that he was just mentioning “repeat the line” so others could join him and that no teleprompter would indicate anything like that.

In fact, that’s not how teleprompters work. They do not repeat lines. They would have only listed it twice. What he really said was “let me repeat that”.

Sorry, but that’s not how teleprompters work. No one would write “repeat line” on a teleprompter. He was improvising…announcing that he was repeating a line in the decision for emphasis.

Remember when Trump blamed the teleprompter when
Did he say that the Continental Army “took the airports” during the American Revolutionary War in the 1770s?
“Our army took care of the air, smashed through the walls, took over the airports, did everything they had to do.”

President Biden later signed an executive order to help protect and expand women’s access to abortion and contraception following the recent Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Because of the historic decision, abortion has been banned in several states across the country and women will have to go elsewhere for the medical procedure.
