Joe Biden is a disaster on many levels but one thing is for sure: He is extremely entertaining.
Many of us have grown to love Joe Biden’s endless gaffes, misnomers, and garbled speech every time his White House handlers let him out of the Delaware basement.
A growing majority of Americans know that Joe Biden’s obvious mental decline clearly prevents him from making the necessary foreign (and domestic) policy decisions, especially as war breaks out in Eastern Europe. Those who fail to recognize Biden’s cognitive deficiencies do so only to protect a failing administration rife with scandal and death.
Meanwhile, Biden did not disappoint during his State of the Union address where he made many gaffes, told many lies, and completely misrepresented the health of our nation.
Joe Biden incorrectly referred to Ukrainians as “Iranians” during his State of the Union address broadcast live on Tuesday night.
Yes, you read that correctly.
“Putin may circle Kyiv with tanks but he’ll never gain the hearts and souls of the Iranian people,” Biden said live on the evening of March 1 at the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C.
A full text of Biden’s State of the Union speech released by The White House to media outlets on Tuesday reveals Biden meant to refer to the hearts and souls of the “Ukrainian” people instead of those of Iranians.
Putin has been at war through proxies with Ukraine since 2014 and initiated a military operation by Russia directly in Ukraine this week.
Biden did not mention Iran anywhere in the speech.
Online observers noted that Vice President Kamala Harris appeared to react to the mention of Iranians in the address.

Biden made the flub — one of several throughout his speech — as he attempted to address Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine, which began on February 24.
Right-wing internet circles were in shock over Biden’s flub and many took note of it on social media:
Did Biden just say Putin is encircling Kyiv but he’ll never win the heart and soul of the Iranian people?

Recently the Kremlin announced plans to formally recognize the independence of two Russian-backed separatist groups in eastern Ukraine’s Donbas region on February 21. Moscow launched an air and ground offensive in neighboring Ukraine just 72 hours later. Russian armed forces encircled Kyiv, Ukraine’s national capital, on February 27.
Peace talks between representatives of the Russian and Ukrainian governments began on February 28 in Belarus. Further peace negotiations are planned between the two sides near the Belarusian-Polish border “in the coming days.”
