President Joe Biden spoke to a half-empty auditorium in Ohio on Wednesday for a CNN town hall where he leered over and flirted with a newlywed bride and incoherently rambled on about “a man on the moon” and “aliens” in connection to getting vaccinated against COVID-19.
Don Lemon was the host and ironically referred to the president as “the big guy” at the town hall. Biden stammered through most of the event and had a problem finishing sentences once again.
The third question during the town hall came from a newlywed couple who asked about getting vaccinations in their community and it quickly turned awkward.
Christian Oliver addressed the president, “Well, so my wife Stephanie and I are newlyweds as of this past Saturday.” Biden at that point eyed the man’s wife and told him, “I’d brag if I were you, too. As they say, when they look at me and my wife, you married up, kid.”
Oliver then asked after the exchange, “Thank you. We required all of our guests and vendors to be vaccinated to ensure safety. We are African-American, and in many of our communities, people are against the vaccine. A reason that stood out the most in regards to our guests is that they don’t see the vaccine as being as safe as the CDC puts it out to be. How are you working towards convincing those in these communities that the vaccine is safe?”
Third question came from a Democrat newlywed who works in the insurance industry, who made the mistake of bringing his wife along as Biden then promptly checked her out and gave that creepy smile.

Biden’s answer started off being a word salad and didn’t get any better.
“It’s really an important question, because in the African-American community, there’s less of an uptake of the vaccination. Number one, there’s a reason for that. You know, you go back just to — even World War II, African-Americans were used as experimental — they were almost like guinea pigs in terms of — they were — anyway, it — and your mom and dad remember that and your grandparents remember that. And so there’s a reason for people to think that, ‘I don’t know, I’m not sure I trust. I’m not sure I trust this.’ Plus a lot of disinformation on top of it,” the president said.
He never really answered Oliver. He did ramble on about community leaders, those who have low income, and getting his foot-soldiers into the community to vaccinate people. Then he incoherently spoke about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and athletes. Biden then shifted to talking about black clergy supporting him and opening their churches up as vaccination centers.
CNN host Don Lemon stepped in at that point.
“But even with my own family, I was just able to get with them. I haven’t seen my mom in a year and a half, except for two weeks ago. I hadn’t seen my family for two years since the last time they visited me two summers ago,” he said. “But even within my own family, here I am on television every night, there is ambivalence, there’s misinformation, and there’s also mistrust in the system. How do you fix that?”
In non-sequitur fashion, Biden answered that people had to have more faith and trust in the government. Then it just got bizarre.
“Think of the people, if your kid wanted to find out whether or not there were — there’s a man on the moon or whatever, you know, something, or, you know, whether those aliens are here or not, you know, who are the people they talk to beyond the kids who love talking about it? They go to people they respect. They say, what do you think? And so they should be asking other people, the people — everything from their teachers to their ministers, to their priests, to people that they trust,” Biden responded.

The president also pushed his “pandemic of the unvaccinated” narrative. It has become a rallying call for the left.
“Well, the virus — look, it’s real simple. We have a pandemic for those who haven’t gotten a vaccination. It’s that basic, that simple. Ten thousand people have recently died; 9,950 of them, thereabouts, are people who hadn’t been vaccinated,” Biden claimed.
The lack of attendance at the event was stunning. Everyone was seated in the front seats and CNN tried to make the auditorium appear fuller than it was. It is not clear whether the low attendance was due to the pandemic or not.
CNN spokeswoman Lauren Pratapas told The New York Post, “This was a typical audience size for a CNN town hall.” She did not clarify why the crowd size was so small.

It should be noted that local GOP leaders were not impressed and called the staged appearance a “flop,” a “staged political event,” and a “propaganda piece for the left.”

He also got hammered by pro-life advocates and Trump supporters. Protests occurred on both sides of the street.

Biden was roasted on social media for the town hall dumpster fire:
You’re witnessing Joe Biden’s last town hall.
They won’t do this again. 😂

They're not hiding their intentions. Joe Biden says he wants to ban handguns — not merely AR-15s like their previous dishonest talking points suggested. Watch Biden stumble through this town hall answer. pic.twitter.com/DI3CDTN1wL

The first ten minutes of the Biden Town Hall was incredibly boring. Not just boring.

I can't take this town hall seriously enough to write any in-depth articles on it. Sorry, folks. It's the same old thing. Biden acts like a dementia case, talks nonsense, news at 11.

Just peeked in to Biden’s town hall and it’s a stuttery dribbling mess, as expected.

Holy sh*t I just tuned into Biden’s CNN Town Hall. He’s literally making zero sense.

If Biden held a town hall in an ant colony, there’d be plenty of empty seats. Not even the ants would come!
