Joe and Jill Biden on Saturday attended a commissioning ceremony for the USS Delaware, a nuclear attack submarine.
“As the commander-in-chief, I believe it is our sacred obligation as nation to prepare and equip those troops that we send into harm’s way and to care for them and their families when they return home,” Biden said.
Biden bungled his speech and referred to Michelle Obama (or Jill Biden?) as “Vice President.”
“I’m deeply proud of the work [Jill is] doing as first lady with Joining Forces initiative she started with Michelle Obama when she was vice president,” Biden said.
At one point 79-year-old Biden appeared to fall asleep while he was standing up.
Joe Biden got confused as he was preparing to disembark.
Jill Biden had to whisper instructions in Joe Biden’s ear after he almost sat down instead of disembarking.
