Things aren’t looking good for US Vice President Joe Biden right now. After a series of gaffes during public remarks, Biden has found himself at the center of internet mockery. Another incident involving the 79-year-old president has only contributed to the conflagration.
🇺🇸 US President Joe Biden got into an akward situation by trying to shake hands with 😅😂🤣??#JoeBiden #HandShake pic.twitter.com/ZTEPkHLAcJ— 𝙍𝘼𝙐𝙇 (@IcanArgue) April 15, 2022
Biden was seen giving an “invisible handshake” after finishing a lecture at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University in Greensboro in a video that has since gone viral. He continued to wander around the podium after that, seeming perplexed.
At the Alumni Event Center, Biden discussed the economy, inflation, manufacturing, and renewable energy jobs.
On stage, Biden seemed lost as well, and after the speech ended, he inexplicably turned his back on the audience.
The President’s speech was centered on the supply chain issue, and it appeared to be an attempt to encourage Congress to increase financing for semiconductor manufacture. Biden, on the other hand, claimed to be a full professor at the University of Pennsylvania despite having never taught a class there, an inaccuracy quickly picked up by social media users.
Netizens were quick to criticize the popular video. While some on the internet sympathized with Biden’s actions, many others pointed out that the entire episode was humiliating.

That’s actually not what happened. You see what you want to see.— John Fehringer (@johnfehringer) April 14, 2022
He was probably told there would be someone up there, and looked for that person 🙄 this isn’t that difficult to figure out— @NotACat__ (@NotACat___) April 14, 2022
an issue with a lack of stage management, if you notice he is simply looking for someone on the stage to tell him where to go . That’s what he was doing he is not shaking hand with Thin Air . He appears to be confused cuz no one on the stage to walk him off .see other video pic.twitter.com/FzagVnmUCY— Ashraf al hakami (@Rafy201) April 15, 2022
