Joe Biden spoke to Coast Guard graduates this week and fell flat on his face stealing a joke once used by Ronald Reagan.
To make matters worse, when the joke failed, he insulted the grads as dull.
Always a class act, right?
The Federalist reports:
Biden Tells Unamused U.S. Coast Guard Graduates They Are ‘Really Dull’
While speaking at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy commencement ceremony Wednesday, President Joe Biden scolded the class for not clapping.
“You are a really dull class,” Biden said. “Come on, man. Is the sun getting to you? I would think you’d have an opportunity when I say that about the Navy to clap. To be here together.”
Biden was attempting to make a joke about how the Coast Guard is what keeps the Navy in check. The graduates then provided an applause once the president showed a bit of insecurity. Later in the speech, Biden seemed to forget the name of a lieutenant commander.
Watch the video below:
Biden appears peeved at the lack of applause from Navy cadets.

The joke worked for Reagan back in the day. Watch:

Biden is really on a roll lately, isn’t he?
This week, Biden already threatened to run over a reporter with his car, called the Coast Guard a “dull class” and quoted Mao verbatim… and it’s not even Thursday.
And these are his MOST endearing qualities.

And the media treat him like their hero. It’s pathetic.
