Watch: Crowd Forced Redo Applause After The Biden’s Sleep Through Introductions
Another day, another mind numbing gaffe from the Biden’s.
Rapper and actor LL Cool J proudly introduced the president and first lady Jill biden during the National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony which was held at the Ellipse south of the White House. However, after the introduction Jill and Joe were no where to be seen despite the entire entourage walking in.
The music played for a bit and then there was almost two minutes of dead silence. Finally, the rapper took the stage and said, “We’re going to do it again.” LL Cool J told the crowd to sit down again and as he reintroduced the president someone near him demanded the audience cheer.
The RNC joked that someone had to wake them up.

After taking a long winters nap Biden addressed the crowd and tried to be cheeky.
“My name is Joe Biden. I am Jill Biden’s husband. On behalf of Jill and Kamala and Doug, we welcome you to the National Christmas Tree lighting.”
He also touted his Catholic faith reasoning that he is trying to bring the country together.
“As we enter this holiday season, in my Catholic faith, I think there’s a prayer attributed to St. Francis. It says, ‘Where there is hatred, let there be to sow love; where there is discord, union; where there is doubt, faith; and where there is darkness, light.’ And that’s what we do. That’s who we are. That’s what the United States of America is all about. So, merry Christmas, America. May God bless you all. And may God protect our troops,” he concluded.
Biden then started the countdown and much to everyones surprise he did it right.
