Joe Biden’s State of the Union speech was an unmitigated disaster. As of this morning, most people have already seen his gaffe where he said that the United States stands with the ‘Iranian people’ when he was discussing the Russia-Ukraine conflict. “Putin may circle Kyiv with tanks, but he’ll never gain the hearts and souls of the Iranian people,” Biden said in his State of the Union speech that was an emotional appeal for putting up a united front against the Russian aggression.

Then, the President was outshined by conservative congresswoman Lauren Boebert, who interrupted Biden when he was talking about veterans by saying that he was responsible for the deaths of 13 U.S servicemembers in Afghanistan.
After that, the President Discussed job creation, trying to paint a positive picture despite the country’s shambolic economic state.
“Ford is investing $11B to build electric vehicles—creating 11,000 jobs across the country. GM is making the largest investment in its history—$7B to build electric vehicles, creating 4,000 jobs in Michigan.” Biden said in his speech and later echoed on Twitter. His Tweet received about 30,000 likes.
Elon Musk, who has been snubbed by Biden in the past and was once again snubbed by him at the State of the Union, was having none of it.
“Tesla has created over 50,000 US jobs building electric vehicles & is investing more than double GM + Ford combined” He said.
His tweet received 185,000 likes.

Musk has been one of the Biden administrations fiercest critics, attacking his failed “Build Back Better” plan and a number of his other economic policies.
