Returning to the White House after pushing election reform in Atlanta , President Joe Biden appeared in front of Americans on Thursday morning. He pushed for more COVID-19 testing and for people to get the controversial jab.
President Biden was sure to acknowledge the stressful year that was 2021, saying, “I know we’re all frustrated as we enter this new year.” But while he sympathized with Americans, he quickly transitioned into laying out his new plan for 2022 and COVID-19. And it should come as no surprise that his speech, as usual, was full of fumbles, blunders, and blank stares as he continued to call for more censorship, COVID-19 testing, and for Americans to take the plunge.
Among the major points in Biden’s 2022 plan to defeat COVID-19, he promised 500 million  more free COVID-19 tests. This is on top of the 500 million at-home tests he had already promised the American people but has failed to deliver. Still, with Omicron surging, he directed officials to make the purchase. On top of more testing, President Biden also declared he would be sending medical teams  to help out hospitals crippled by COVID-19.
But before he could even get to the main point staring at him from the teleprompter, he appeared to completely shut down, as in the video below. Biden repeatedly stumbled over his words, not knowing what to say.
Finally able to get through all the points, Biden declared, “COVID-19 is one of the most formidable enemies America has ever faced. We’ve got to work together, not against each other. We’re America. We can do this.”
Quickly after his speech ended, the questions from the pool of reporters started to be hurled at President Biden. One reporter can even be heard asking the President why Americans should stay at home and distance themselves when experts suggest most people will eventually get COVID-19 no matter what. Biden doesn’t entertain the question more than a few seconds before claiming, “We’ll talk about it later.”
And falling back into his usual routine, President Biden casually stared into the camera as the reporters fired multiple questions at him. He didn’t appear to acknowledge a single one as he simply put his head down as his handlers herded the reporters out.
