President Joe Biden is currently fulfilling his duties while the public perception remains as ambiguous about him as ever. He’s taken another step towards seeming like he’s not in his own control. That’s not all, because President Biden did it while being completely televised.

The POTUS was giving out a speech when he made an insane blunder. The President was reading a speech right off the teleprompter urging Democrats to vote after the Roe V. Wade ruling. When the words “Repeat the line” appeared on the screen, he thought that he had to say that out loud as well.

President Biden said the words out loud, and the hilarious instance was there for the whole country to see. It became a widely discussed moment on social media, with many drawing comparisons between it and Will Ferrell’s 2004 comedy, Anchorman.

Elon Musk also shared a meme of the “Anchorman” character Ron Burgundy, who was known for making blunders like saying “Go f*ck yourself, San Diego” when it was scrolled on the prompter and who in one scene reads the line, “I’m Ron Burgundy?” as a question.

One Twitter user posted an edit where Biden’s face is deep faked over Ted Burgundy’s face. As he says “repeat the line,” it cuts to one of the characters from the classic comedy saying that Burgundy will say anything he sees on the teleprompter.
