Biden, 81, glares into the teleprompter and almost makes disastrous slip-up during NATO speech to world leaders trying to prove he is fit to serve


President Joe Biden avoided a near disastrous slip-up during his welcome speech to NATO leaders on Tuesday as the eyes of the world watched him to judge his fitness to serve four more years in the White House.

‘I don’t think I did, no,’ Biden stated.

Biden’s speech was relatively error free and his words were strong but his focus remained on the teleprompter before him.

He also had a minor stumble when he tried to tell a story about asking Stoltenberg to stay on as NATO chief.

‘I realized I was talking to your wife. I
