What Is Joe Biden Saying? No, Seriously. What Words Are These?

A video of President Joe Biden appearing to believe he was speaking coherently while blabbering nonsensical noises went viral online Thursday. I’ve watched it about 45 times and I still have no idea what the heck is going on in this clip.

More than 1,300,000 people have watched the clip of Biden staring vacantly at someone or a screen or maybe a small fly that only he can see as he’s told that Democratic Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan doesn’t want the president campaigning for him in his state, while Democratic Georgia Sen. Raphael Warnock won’t say whether or not the president’s endorsement would be helpful to his campaign.

“Do you think they’re making a mistake?” Biden is asked of the two leaders. “No,” Biden answers, before spending six full seconds saying a handful of words, only a few of which can be deciphered. “They’re [noise] sixteen [incoherence] for-something [??] a lot more [unintelligible] last, another twenty or so, I’m gonna [something??].”

One Twitter user asked, “What part of “No b’there sixteen ‘n’ ‘ve already done in 4 year ‘n’ lot more last another twenty or so. So I’m gonnabe gon ye.” don’t you understand?” in response to the video, which is the closest translation I’ve found in all of my searching this morning.

Thank goodness no one is threatening nuclear war and there aren’t any major energy or financial crises hitting the U.S. right now or having a leader who can’t use words in order correctly might be a huge issue. It could really make us look vulnerable on the world stage… oh wait…
