Lick the world? God save the Queen? What?!
President Biden’s choice of phrases has been the topic of much debate lately as they appear to be getting stranger and stranger. According to a new report, Biden’s staff is just as confounded by some of his phrases as the American people.
From The New York Post:
The 80-year-old president’s most recent bizarre utterance occurred last Friday during a speech on gun control at the University of Hartford’s campus in Connecticut.
“God save the Queen, man,” Biden said to end his speech, baffling journalists and White House staffers alike.

The White House has yet to explain what the president meant by the line.
Olivia Dalton, the Biden administration’s deputy press secretary, would only say on Friday that Biden “was commenting to someone in the crowd,” without further clarification.
Biden deployed the same line in January 2017, when as vice president he certified the results of the 2016 presidential election.
“God save the queen,” Biden muttered into the microphone on the dais as he gaveled Congress out of session.
Axios reported on Monday that several current and former Biden aides gave different answers about what Biden meant by the phrase and some said they still aren’t sure about the meaning.
The outlet notes that some speculate Biden may use the phrase sarcastically given his Irish ancestry.
The president’s State of the Union message to Republican lawmakers this year also raised eyebrows.
“Lots of luck in your senior year,” he told Republicans.
