Today the U.S.S. Delaware had its public commissioning ceremony which had been delayed for 2 years.
Joe and Jill Biden were in attendance, and each gave some opening remarks, but then something went mysteriously wrong, leading me to believe that the ceremony did not go as planned…
Around the 42 minute mark of the official White House video, the feed is cut and edited. Roughly 4 seconds later, Biden’s speech is abruptly cut, and it cuts to Jill Biden taking the podium…
This is odd to say the least, but that’s not all…
I honestly can’t tell if he is falling asleep, or attempting to be solemn in the video directly below, but later on he also appeared to be confused while walking off the stage, take a look:

Fox 13 had more on the delayed public commissioning of the U.S.S. Delaware:
In April 2020, with the coronavirus pandemic spreading across the United States, the Delaware was commissioned while underwater, a first for a Navy vessel. Since then it has been in training.

CNN focused their remarks on Jill Biden:
Biden officially christened the boat back in 2018, smashing a bottle of champagne across its bow during a ceremony at a Virginia shipyard, which Delaware Democratic Gov. John Carney fondly recounted on Saturday: “That bottle just exploded, it was something to behold.”
Biden was named the boat’s sponsor during a Pentagon ceremony announcing the future vessel’s name in 2012, when her husband was vice president.
