With Biden and Chips, You Can’t ‘Say’ Just One – Watch

President Joe Biden traveled to Phoenix, Arizona, on Tuesday to visit a plant that makes semiconductors or computer chips. After a walk-through of the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (TSMC), he also gave some remarks about his economic plan that he hopes will create a more booming economy in place of the dismal one his administration is responsible for with high inflation, high prices, and low morale. 

But once again, it’s a roll of the dice whenever the president gets behind a mic. As he was reading his prewritten speech about chips made by the company he is there to the hype as an answer to the question, “Is America really building back better,” he got a little confused. 

The president was trying to describe the size of the size of the microchips made by TSMC, but he couldn’t stop saying “chips” unnecessarily. 

“TSMC has announced a second major investment,” Biden said. “They will construct a second fab here in Phoenix to build chips- three nano chips- three nano chip- chips that are three nano- any- you know what I’m saying,” Biden decided that he should just quit trying to say it correctly while the audience laughed. Then he added, “Nano, nono, I don’t know,” the president added. 

So now we have a president that legitimately can’t seem to get through a speech and an audience that is willing to turn the whole thing into a comedy sketch. But the reality is not very funny at all. 

One thing was very real about Biden’s speech in Arizona, he did admit the existence of inflation in his remarks instead of denying that it exists. He called it a “high class problem” and said that it was going to be “transitory” — but he insisted his administration was keeping the “job market resilient.”

Of course, this flies in the face of the fact that repeated monthly job reports have shown a shrinking labor force participation rate. Real wages also remain negative under the president’s policies, and there is Biden’s war on American energy that includes oil, natural gas, and coal which is costing union jobs. And there is the unconstitutional vaccine mandate that caused many hard-working citizens to lose their livelihoods. 

But let’s just laugh at how many times the president can say “chips” in one short speech.
