Conservative commentator Dan Bongino compiled a clip of President Biden’s employee vaccine mandate push in Illinois that showcased his mumbling and stumbling through an incomprehensible and simply embarrassing speech.
While Biden disingenuously claimed that healthcare workers who are vaccinated provide “certainty” that they are protected from the virus which, therefore, can’t spread to other individuals, others noticed that he was unclear in his speech, couldn’t remember names or places, and embarrassingly had to spell some things out before he could say them correctly.
The president confused Ohio and Pennsylvania and awkwardly had to correct himself. He stuttered over names, then misspoke saying he was on television and had to walk that back slowly and painfully to say he was on the telephone. He definitely seemed to struggle with the teleprompter repeatedly. The speech was not a good look for Biden.
Regardless of the difficulties that Biden had executing his speech Thursday, his messaging was abundantly and alarmingly clear as he basically ordered businesses to mandate vaccines despite those who are concerned about “mass firings” and “hundreds of people losing their jobs.” He admonished them to focus on “the bigger story.”

“Let’s be clear: When you see headlines and reports of mass firings and hundreds of people losing their jobs, look at the bigger story,” Biden stated.
“Without them, we face endless months of chaos in our hospitals, damage to our economy and anxiety in our schools and empty restaurants and much less commerce,” Biden warned.
“The vaccination requirements are tough medicine: unpopular with some, politics for others,” he proclaimed. “But they’re life-saving, they’re game-changing for our country.”
“The unvaccinated also put our economy at risk because people are reluctant to go out,” he claimed. “Because they’re worried they’re going to get sick. I’ve tried everything in my power to get people vaccinated.”
“For folks who haven’t gotten vaccinated, get it done,” Biden commanded. “We have a plan. We have the tools … We just have to finish the job.”

Biden spoke in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, at a site affiliated with the construction company Clayco. CEO Robert Clark reportedly donated $1.6 million to Democratic campaigns in 2020, according to Federal Election Commission records. At least $116,000 of that money went to Biden’s presidential campaign.
The Biden campaign listed the construction CEO as someone who “raised at least $100,000 for our campaign and affiliated joint fundraising committees.” Clayco affiliates also donated $387,037 to Democratic campaigns in 2020.
Biden was introduced by Democratic Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker and Democratic Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
“These requirements work,” Biden declared. “And as the Business Roundtable and others told me when I announced the first requirement, that encouraged businesses to feel they could come in and demand the same thing of their employees. More people are getting vaccinated. More lives are being saved.”
The President’s remarks came just hours after the White House released a report outlining the importance of vaccine mandates in driving up vaccination rates and helping Americans return to work.
The dubious 26-page report asserts that more than 185 million Americans are now fully vaccinated and that “the unprecedented pace of the president’s vaccination campaign saved over 100,000 lives and prevented 450,000 hospitalizations.”
It also claims that 3,500 organizations, or 25% of all businesses, have already instituted mandates ahead of new rules being drafted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration that will require companies with over 100 workers to get them vaccinated or require they undergo weekly testing. Failure to do so will result in massive business-killing fines.
Biden was once again pilloried for his hot mess of a speech that brings into question his competency as a leader:
So he sat on the TV, or climbed into the TV?. While on the phone?.

I wondered to myself what would happen if I put fifty marbles in my mouth. Then told myself to watch this video and I got my answer.
