(conservativebrief)Any time Joe Biden goes off-script, he’s bound to say something outrageous.
The latest example came on Monday when Biden hosted outgoing Israeli President Reuven Rivlin at the White House.
While in the Oval Office, Biden bizarrely brought up Rivlin’s daughter.
Below is a transcript of the exchange:
Biden: “I’m really happy to have President Rivlin here. And I don’t want to — it’s not technically appropriate, but I’m so delighted his daughter is here. She’s in the back right there and I got to meet her and talk about our kids and grandkids and all the like. Anyway, I just wanted to thank the President for being here and for your dedication to strengthening the relationship between the United States and Israel.”
Rivlin: “Thank you.”
This is hardly the first time Biden has made a bizarre comment while in front of the cameras.
Earlier this month at the G7 Summit, Biden forgot to say “at ease” while speaking to the troops so they could sit down after standing to applaud him.
“I keep forgetting I’m president,” Biden said.

It is tough to determine if Biden is a racist or simply does not think before he speaks, or both.
But he did it again earlier this month when he was in Tulsa, Oklahoma to give a speech on race when he said something that, to many, sounded extremely racist.
“Young black entrepreneurs are just as capable of succeeding given the chance as white entrepreneurs are, but they don’t have lawyers, they don’t have accountants, but they have great ideas,” he said.

Back in late May, Biden made a comment to a young girl that many found creepy.
As he was giving a speech at Joint Base Langley-Eustice in Hampton, Virginia, he made a comment about a young girl’s barrettes and how she “looked like a 19-year-old.”
“I’m especially honored to share the stage with Brittany and Jared and Nathan and Margaret Catherine. I love those barrettes in your hair, man. I tell you what, look at her. She looks like she’s 19 years old sitting there like a little lady with her legs crossed,” he said.

Biden scolded U.S. Coast Guard graduates at a commencement speech Wednesday after they failed to applaud part of his speech.
“I can only assume that you’ll enjoy educating your family about how the Coast Guard is, the hard nucleus around the Navy formed in times of war,” Biden said to the graduates as he began his remarks at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut.
When no one erupted in applause, Biden continued, “Why you’re a real dull class. I mean, c’mon man is the sun getting to you? I would think you’d have an opportunity when I say that about the Navy to clap.”
“All kidding aside, being here today is a victory in and of itself, an important mark in the progress we made to turn the tide of the pandemic, and it’s a testament of the military’s sense of responsibility you already embody, so no doubt in my mind the 148th graduating class of the United States Coast Guard Academy will reflect the very best of our country in the proudest positions of our service,” Biden added.

He applauded the graduates as the “most open generation in American history” as he addressed race and equity attempts in the Coast Guard Academy.
