Joe Biden Made a Big Deal Out of Saying “End of Quote” in a Speech.
Most people knew Joe Biden wasn’t the best speaker in the world long before he became president of the United States.
He’s a politician, so he’s capable of rousing oration, but he’s also been known to make the odd blunder while speaking, and he used to have a speech impediment when he was younger.
Biden appeared to make one of his signature gaffes in a recent speech, but was it a genuine blunder?
Biden discussed the economy, inflation, and his plans to address many of the concerns Americans have about the economy during a recent speech before departing for his Thanksgiving holiday.

After a plagiarism scandal sank his presidential campaign in 1988, Biden took up the habit.
He now makes it clear when he’s quoting someone else and when he’s speaking entirely on his own.
Some may interpret Biden’s choice of “end of quote” as evidence of cognitive decline, but this does not appear to be the case.
However, right-wing media outlets exploited the quote, using it as proof that Biden is unfit for office.

While much of the right-wing media concentrated on a perfectly logical three-word phrase that Biden chose to include in his speech, they didn’t devote nearly as much attention to the…
