We can’t make this up.
A video reveals Joe Biden walking past a couple of marines forgetting to salute them but then out of nowhere he says “salute the marines”.
It appears that his handlers told him to “salute the marines” but instead of saluting them he just repeated his handler’s message.
How weird is that!
Check it out:
Yo this dude has a guy in his ear piece telling him to “salute the marines” and instead of saluting the marines, Biden just says “salute the marines” 😂🤣🥴♿️ pic.twitter.com/IYg1ShBASn

The National File added more to the story:
Video footage taken on Wednesday went viral today as viewers noticed that when President Joe Biden was walking into the Capitol on inauguration day, he robotically stated aloud “Salute the Marines” instead of actually saluting them.
The awkward interaction appears to have been prompted by someone communicating with Biden via earpiece, which has become a staple of the 78-year-old Biden’s public appearances due to numerous gaffes and instances of erratic behavior.
President Trump never failed to salute our marines but it seems like Biden has to be reminded to salute.

Biden wasn’t the only one looking foolish, his wife Jill also tried to shake a soldiers hand while he was on guard duty:

Joe Biden saying “salute the marines” instead of actually saluting the marines because someone said that in his earpiece is absolutely brilliant. Surely It’s too good to be true ? It’s like a will Farrell bit
