White House Transcript Insists Biden Said ‘Let Me Repeat That Line’ In Mocked Video


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

The White House has issued a transcript of a speech by President Biden in which he appeared to many to be reading the cues from the teleprompter, “end of quote. Repeat the line.”

It happened during a Friday speech in which the president was talking about the Supreme Court ending Roe V Wade.

“One of the most important extraordinary parts of the decision, in my view, is the majority writes, and I quote — I’m going to quote now from the majority — ‘Women are not without electoral or political power, it is noteworthy that the percentage of women who register to vote and cast a ballot is consistently higher than the percentage of the men who do so,’ end of quote, repeat the line,” he appeared to have said.

White House Assistant Press Secretary Emilie Simons immediately took to Twitter to say, “No. He said, ‘let me repeat that line,’” for which she was roundly mocked.

“Everyone can see the video and hear what he said, yet you are lying about it. Do you think 1984 was an instruction manual?” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ spokesperson Christina Pushaw said.

“Oh wow you were Adam Schiff’s comms director before this?!?! You literally get paid to lie for a living. Is the Russian collusion still hiding in plain sight?” Greg Price said.

“Why are you lying to the American people while collecting a taxpayer funded paycheck? You should be fired. Immediately,” Arthur Schwartz said.


“How does it feel to treat Americans like idiots in exchange for feeling important because of your title? How does it feel to lie to the country to further your own ambition? Are you even slightly embarrassed to do it?” Robby Starbuck said.

“It would be something that people would forget about by the end of the day, but when you brazenly lie about it, that keeps it around longer,” editor Jay Caruso said.

“Can you post a video of the part where he says ‘let me’? Because none of us hear that,” the Hodge twins said.

“Your courageous willingness to unhesitatingly bring this utterly predictable mega-ratio down on your own head for your cause makes you the kind of scheming, soulless prevaricator @TheDemocrats will always need,” Ron Coleman said.

But the official White House transcript has the president quoted as saying “let me repeat the line.”

“White House transcript of Biden remarks is now incorrectly aligned with what this WH assistant press secretary falsely claimed on Twitter, despite the video showing Biden clearly stating ‘End of quote. Repeat the line.’ & *not* ‘Let me repeat the line,’” Jerry Dunleavy said with a photo highlighting the quote.

Watch the video and judge for yourself.

President Joe Biden has again turned heads over something he did following a speech in Cleveland, Ohio, earlier this week.

In a video clip posted to Twitter, Biden, 79, appeared to imitate a fish as he looked at someone in the crowd.



Needless to say, several users responded to the bizarre facial gesturing from the aged president.


The incident is only likely to fuel more speculation that Biden’s mental status is not good and that he doesn’t have the wherewithal to run again in 2024 — or even serve out his current term.

According to The Daily Wire:

A Gallup poll released on Tuesday finds Americans’ confidence in “the presidency” as an institution has dropped to 23% from 38% in 2021 — a record low since the survey began in 1973.

But it wasn’t just the presidency that took a hit. The survey found that an average of just 27% of those polled had either “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in 14 major institutions that Gallup has measured for decades: the church/organized religion, the military, the Supreme Court, banks, public schools, newspapers, Congress, organized labor, big business, television news, the presidency, the police, the medical system, and the criminal justice system.

The new confidence level in the 14 sectors is down from 32% in 2021 and even plunged below the previous low of 30% in 2014.

“Americans are less confident in major U.S. institutions than they were a year ago, with significant declines for 11 of the 16 institutions tested and no improvements for any. The largest declines in confidence are 11 percentage points for the Supreme Court — as reported in late June before the court issued controversial rulings on gun laws and abortion — and 15 points for the presidency, matching the 15-point drop in President Joe Biden’s job approval rating since the last confidence survey in June 2021,” the polling firm noted.
