President Joe Biden commits yet another error amidst calls from Republican legislators for him to take a cognitive test.
In August, Biden presented a plan to subsidize student loan debt, which was harshly criticized by Republican leaders. Although media outlets praised the proposal, they were compelled to note its shortcomings, particularly its inflationary impact. Biden announced the establishment of an online application gateway for persons with annual incomes of less than $125,000 to get up to $10,000 in handouts at a cost of up to $400 billion.
There was no explanation of how the program might be handled without influencing the record-high inflation rates. Biden also touted the website of the Federal Trade Commission for reporting the plan’s anticipated fraud.
On Monday, Biden made a second blunder while attempting to disseminate the website to prevent student loan fraud. While promoting the FTC’s website, he accidentally misspelled the word “dot” while providing the URL.
“If you get any questionable calls, please tell us by going to report fraud … report fraud, D-O-T, F-T-C, dot gov,” Biden said, for the website reportfraud.ftc.gov/.
Biden is so gone that he will literally read ANY WORDS they put on the teleprompter in front of him. 🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️

Social Media lighted up.
Tim Young, a columnist for the Washington Times, tweeted, ‘Biden is so far gone that he will literally read ANY WORDS that are placed on the teleprompter in front of him. ‘reportfraud D-O-T F-T-C dot gov.’
Jason Howerton, engagement director for CRTV, penned, “Glassy-eyed Biden gets another absolute ass kicking from the teleprompter,”
“Stand strong, Joe! You’re the only thing standing between us and Kamala,” joked YouTuber Todd Masson.
“Can’t make this up. They put the word ‘dot’ in the teleprompter and he literally got so confused he spelt it out instead of just saying ‘dot,’” RNC Research director of fast response Tommy Pigott wrote.
“Joe Biden spelled out D-O-T that’s the . in an [web] address today. He really is Ron Burgandy,” tweeted radio presenter Clay Travis.

Now it appears the First Lady is frustrated because nobody is preventing the president from making errors.
The New York Times reported on Sunday that after the president’s most recent solo news conference in January, in which he did not follow then-press secretary Jen Psaki’s signal to end it, the first lady demanded to know why no one intervened.
More on this story via The Republic Brief:
Several GOP lawmakers reacted to this report and shared their thoughts on the report with Fox News Digital.
“Apparently the First Lady knows a train wreck when she sees one,” Rep. Austin Scott, R-Ga. told Fox in a statement. “I think everyone in the White House is concerned that the President will accidentally reveal the Biden-Harris administration’s true agenda.” CONTINUE READING…
