Biden Oblivious to Surroundings: Says 'Everyone in This Room' during Outdoor Speech
Biden is hoping to increase the size of the government.
Joe Biden made another gaffe during a speech in Michigan on Tuesday while pushing his widely unpopular $3.5 trillion 'infrastructure' plan.
Through more reckless use of taxpayers' money, Biden is hoping to increase the size of the government.
Accompanying his $1.2 trillion "infrastructure" bill, Biden has also proposed a 10-year $3.5 trillion package to expand Medicare and offer free child care while supposedly fighting climate change.
Biden tried to convince an audience at a training site for heavy equipment that allowing him to weaken their bank account would be good if he is given more opportunities to spend their tax dollars.
"So here's what I'm proposing. First, the infrastructure bill: It's about rebuilding our roads, our highways, our bridges, our ports, our airports, our broadband — all the things that need repair," he said, according to a transcript provided by the White House.
"Our arteries of our economy have always been fueled by the economic might and dynamism of Americans."
But Biden forgot he was actually outside.
"I'll bet everyone in this room can tell me what the most dangerous intersection in this town or any town they live in — and where it is — that you hold your breath when you're driving over or trying to cross the street. Not a joke," he said.
Biden was oblivious to the optics of addressing a crowd that was outdoors as "everyone in this room."
A guy trying to convince you to increase your tax dollars needs to be aware of his surroundings to have any weight.
As Biden introduced Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer near the beginning of his speech, he said something incoherent.
"And, of course, it's great to be here with my friend — we've become friends," Biden said of the governor, who he referred to as "outstanding."
"One of the best governors in the United States of America, and her lieutenant governor, who covers in every way — both in terms of physically and mentally — and every other way," Biden said.
