WATCH: Awkward Silence After Joe Biden Makes Creepy Comment During Wisconsin Speech

Joe Biden gave another speech today – this time at a brewery in Wisconsin, where he traveled to promote his $5 billion infrastructure project. The project includes $1 billion to replace a bridge in Superior, WI.

As always, Biden’s speech was chock-full of gaffes and brazen lies.

At one point, he bragged, “Employment has been below 4% for the longest stretch in 50 years!” and claimed he “brought the deficit down by $7 billion.”

Both false claims.

Yet, the real lowlight of Biden’s speech in Wisconsin was a moment of awkward silence after Biden dropped a creepy comment about the wife and kids  of the person who introduced him…

“Tim, thank your for that introduction. I got to meet his twins and his wife, and no wonder he’s here…” Biden remarked, to a silent crowd.

Watch here:

Of course, this wasn’t the only bizarro Biden moment in Wisconsin.

At one point, Biden sounded like he was speaking a different language…

Biden also started shouting randomly in the middle of his speech…

After concluding his remarks, Biden paused to listen to a barrel of beer, then awkwardly shuffled out of the room.

Reuters has more details on Biden’s Thursday speech in Wisconsin:

U.S. President Joe Biden is pushing $5 billion into transportation projects around the country during a visit Thursday to Wisconsin, hoping his cheery economic pitch takes root in a high-value state in the 2024 election.
The visit highlights a $1 billion investment to replace the Blatnik Bridge in Superior, which connects Wisconsin and Minnesota and is vital to the region’s its small business owners, the White House said.
“Economic growth is stronger than we had in the Trump administration,” Biden said, adding that the economy has defied the expectations of both forecasters and his likely Republican opponent Donald Trump, who he said wanted the economy to tank.
Biden has struggled to shake voters’ concerns about elevated consumer prices, and polls show him lagging likely Republican challenger Donald Trump in the Nov. 5 presidential election.
Democrats hope stronger-than-expected economic growth and improving consumer sentiment, coupled with trips to battleground states to highlight investment, will shift U.S. voters.
The New York Times also commented:

Consumer confidence is up. Fears of a recession are abating. The economy is growing. And a corroded bridge in Wisconsin is receiving more funding.

It is a wintry mix of positive news for President Biden, who traveled to the shores of a bay near Lake Superior on Thursday to stand at the foot of the Blatnik Bridge, a structure that his administration said would have failed by 2030 without a $1 billion infusion provided by the bipartisan infrastructure law that Mr. Biden championed.

The president was there to talk infrastructure and the economy, and to contrast his performance with that of his predecessor and likely challenger in the general election , former President Donald J. Trump.

“The economic growth is stronger than we had during the Trump administration,” Mr. Biden, dressed in a casual pullover sweater, said as he addressed Wisconsinites assembled at Earth Rider Brewery in Superior, Wis. “We obviously have more work to do, but we’re making real progress.”

As the president spoke, Mr. Trump was taking the stand in a defamation trial in New York, offering a striking split-screen comparison that the Biden campaign has welcomed.

Mr. Biden and his advisers believe projects like the Blatnik, taking place in the backyards of Americans living in battleground states like Wisconsin, could be enough to bolster optimism and overcome pervasive skepticism about the state of the economy.
