Most of President Joe Biden’s embarrassing, awkward gaffes occur every time he attempts to read from a teleprompter, usually during important addresses either to the country or the world.
But his latest screw-up came in the form of a tweet, and he’s taking an absolute beating for what he wrote. As Fox News reported, Biden, in a recent tweet, not only bragged about gas prices coming down but also misspelled a key word that immediately raised brows across the country.

Users, including many from right-leaning media outlets, pointed out not only how out of touch Biden is with the gas prices bragging, but his typo, which many believed was an interesting spelling.
“At current prices, the average driver will spend $35 less per month for one peson [sic]” or “$70 less per month for a family with two cars than they would if gas prices stayed at their peak,” an infographic included in the tweet read.
“How many people were involved in planning, designing, editing and sending this poster? Minimum of five, probably a lot more. Yet it still went out with a glaring typo. Tells you a lot about how this White House is staffed and run,” tweeted Hans Mahncke.
As far as the gas prices, many asked the president to do the same comparison to now versus one year ago. Prices have come down over the past several weeks, but remain at record-high levels. Social media users were quick to point out that absolutely nobody is breathing any sighs of relief over gas still being well over $4 per gallon.
“Now do prices compared to a year ago, snake oil salesman,” Kassy Dillon tweeted.
This week, it’s expected to be revealed that the U.S. had its second consecutive quarter of negative GDP, which has traditionally meant “recession” status. However, the White House is already being accused of trying to redefine what a recession truly is.
