There is a reason Biden’s handlers require him to use a teleprompter most of the time. Whenever he goes “off script” it appears to be a disaster. Not long ago, he messed up the opening to the Declaration of Independence. Now, he tried to wing the Pledge of Allegiance, something school children for generations learn by heart. This is getting ridiculous.
You might remember the time Joe Biden screwed up one of the most memorable lines from U.S. history: a part of the opening of the Declaration of Independence.
It goes: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights.”
What Biden said was, “We hold these truths to be self-evident All men and women created by — you know, you know, the thing.”
Not a great look, Joe. The “thing” you’re talking about is one of the greatest statements in human history.
But, as usual, Democrats and their media tried to sweep that under the rug. It was followed, though, by months of inane comments, gaffes, insults, and confusing remarks by the Democratic nominee. His frequent poor performances have given rise to the worry that Joe is suffering from mental decline, probably dementia.
More recently, he tried to make a clever point about the Pledge of Allegiance. But while trying to quote the actual pledge, he screwed up again.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden botched the words to America’s Pledge of Allegiance on Monday, drawing widespread mockery online.
“I don’t pledge allegiance to red states of America or blue states of America, I pledge allegiance to the United States of America. One nation, indivisible under God. For real,” Biden said. “I’m running as a proud Democrat, but I’m not going to govern as a Democratic president, I’m going to govern as president.”

Yeah, he was trying to convince his listeners that he won’t be a partisan leader if elected, I guess. That doesn’t vibe with literally everything he’s been saying since he entered office. He and the rest of the left have done nothing but attack, vilify, and demonize conservatives and Trump supporters for years. But now, we’re supposed to believe he’ll govern not “as a Democratic president,” but as “president.”
Not even Obama did that. We’re not buying it.
Then Biden tried to unite voters by reciting the Pledge. He bungled it up almost as badly as the Declaration of Independence, ending with yet another chestnut: “For real.”
This is most likely why his campaign staff try to get him to use a teleprompter all the time. They denied it, even getting angry at the accusation, but Biden betrayed all of them when he held up a picture, revealing the teleprompter in the glass’s reflection.
So now, it seems, the campaign is trying to get Joe to make appearances without a teleprompter. Even then, he had his words written out in front of him. I guess his eyes are going too, because he ended up butchering the Pledge worse than a pork chop.
Or maybe he doesn’t like those parts of the Pledge he left out? We can’t say for sure, but what does it say about a man who can’t remember something generations of children recited every day?
