While President Joe Biden’s State of the Union speech on Tuesday was riddled with moments that made the rounds on social media, it was the way he ended his remarks that left many scratching their heads.
After his hour-long speech to Congress and the nation, during which he referred to the Ukrainian people bravely fighting against Russian invasion as Iranians, Biden concluded with a rousing dose of pro-America remarks.
“So on this night, in our 245th year as a nation, I have come to report on the State of the Union. And my report is this: the State of the Union is strong—because you, the American people, are strong,” the president said as he readied to close out his speech.

“We are stronger today than we were a year ago. And we will be stronger a year from now than we are today. Now is our moment to meet and overcome the challenges of our time,” he continued.
“And we will, as one people. One America. The United States of America,” he said. “May God bless you all. May God protect our troops.”
But Biden’s final three words left many wondering whether he had just uttered a rallying cry or something else.
Go Get Him?

Some thought he said “Go get ’em” and others believed he had said “go get him,” but the confusion was immediate.
What did Biden mean by “Go get him,” at the end? Did he think he was ending a pre-game speech? pic.twitter.com/pq9kweUroP

Him is Putin?
Him is ‘em, meaning a general buck-up to American troops?
Him is the American people? Or something?

My thoughts are with the White House speechwriter whose closing statement just got replaced with “go get em!”
