Biden Roasted After Struggling While Reading a Poem


President Joe Biden is facing mockery after he struggled through reading a poem.

During a National Medals of Arts and National Humanities Medals ceremony, Biden chose to read a poem written for former President Barack Obama’s second inauguration. 

“And always one moon like a silent drum tapping at every rooftop and every window on every – in –  of every county – country,” he began, adding, “Let me start this over again.”

Turning to Richard Blanco, the poem’s author, Biden said, “I’m getting so intimidated by you being here.”

He began to read again, “And always one moon like a silent drum tapping on every rooftop and every window, of one country — county — county — all of us facing the stars; hope, a new constellation waiting for us to map it, waiting for us to name it together.”

The Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles tweeted, “Biden tried to read a poem. It turned out precisely as well as you would expect.”

A user with the name ALX wrote, “Joe Biden tried to read a poem off of his teleprompter, got stuck on a word, so he started over only to get stuck on the same word again.”

Another user wrote, “My three year old can say the word ‘country’ perfectly.”

Ben Williamson, chief of staff for Rep. Michael Cloud (R-Texas), tweeted, “Putin and Xi just completed meeting day 3. We get this and Ted Lasso. Things are great.”

Still, another user asked, “Is he talking about the poem or his entire presidency?”

Earlier in the day, Biden had some trouble pronouncing the name of a new national monument, IJR reported.
