Sad, funny, or TERRIFYING? Why Biden’s embarrassing ‘kleptocracy’ gaffe is no laughing matter

President Joe Biden has suffered yet another embarrassing gaffe during a Thursday speech asking the U.S. Congress for an additional $33 billion Ukraine aid package. But this latest example of cognitive failure has caused more concern than amusement among his critics.

While attempting to explain plans to seize Russian assets, the President twice referred to “accommodating Russian oligarchs” by taking their “ill-begotten gains” before repeatedly trying and failing to read the word “kleptocrats” off the teleprompter.

“In addition to this supplemental funding, I’m also sending to Congress a comprehensive package of — that will enhance our underlying effort to accommodate the Russian oligarchs and make sure we take their — take their — thier — ill-begotten gains. Ha, we’re going to accommodate them. We’re going to seize their yachts, their luxury homes, and other ill-begotten gains of Putin’s kleptoc-k-k- (inaudible) — yeah — kleptocracy and klep- — the guys who are the kleptocracies. But these are bad guys.”
