Weird and Notable Dem Moments at the SOTU

We’ve reported on the things Joe Biden said during his State of the Union here, here, and here.

For example, Biden’s brain broke mid-speech but he continued with weirdly (and falsely) claiming that, though “You can’t build a wall high enough to keep out…a vaccine,” vaccines would stop the spread of COVID.


Let’s not even pretend he’s normal when he has moments like this.

But what should not go without notice is the weird Democratic moments at the SOTU, beyond just what Biden said.

First, there was Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) standing at the wrong point to clap for what Biden was saying, but standing to boos instead.

It just shows what a perfunctory, seal-like exercise that kind of clapping is. Schumer got so bored with it, he couldn’t even get the timing of it right.

When Joe Biden was mingling after the speech, he was engaging in some kind of weird exchange, touching his head to a woman’s head.

Was Biden trying to rub noses or what? Talk about strange. Why can’t he just stop touching people in creepy ways? Does Corn Pop need to have another talk with him?

Now, if we want to talk about creepy, this is it — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) seemingly rubbing her clenched paws together with glee when Joe Biden is talking about…people dying with cancer from burn pits. Why does that make her grin like a Cheshire Cat and look like she just saw a pile of her designer ice cream?


Kamala Harris was sitting behind Joe Biden during the speech, but even she couldn’t hold back completely when he called the Ukrainian people the “Iranian people” during his speech.

“Putin may circle Kyiv with tanks but he’ll never gain the hearts and souls of the Iranian people,” Biden said. You can see her mouthing the word “Ukrainian.” Can’t imagine that’s going to go over well with the Ukrainians either not just because he couldn’t get their name right but because they are not yet encircled. So it’s not good to suggest they are when they’re fighting so desperately against it.

Now, we would be remiss if we didn’t notice the similarity between perhaps the only good line in Joe Biden’s speech and the SOTU of President Donald Trump.

But perhaps in some ways, one of the most notable pictures wasn’t weird at all. It was a natural progression. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) spent the entire SOTU sitting with the Republicans.


Perhaps a sign of things to come? He can’t be happy with what Biden said which didn’t involve banning any Russian oil or increasing our production — two things he said he would be watching and hoping to see in the speech. But it says a lot about where he felt comfortable during the SOTU.
