On Tuesday, Biden held a strange celebration for his Inflation Reduction Act. At the event, Nancy Pelosi gave a speech in which she awkwardly instructed her audience to applaud after they missed what she intended to be an “applause line.”

While inflation remains at record-high levels, the White House held a party to celebrate Biden’s great Inflation Reduction Act that many have since criticized as “out of touch.”

During her speech at the event, Pelosi heaped praise onto Biden for his “extraordinary leadership,” and, after failing to get a reaction out of her White House audience, she instructed them to applaud.

“Mr. President, thank you for unifying and inspiring a vision of a strong, fairer, safer future for all, for our children,” gushed Pelosi. “Your extraordinary leadership has made this glorious day possible.”

Pelosi paused expectantly, but was met with silence. She then told the crowd, “That’s an applause line,” laughing uncomfortably as the audience obeyed her orders.
