'Well, nothing instills confidence like petulance (assuming he heard the question) and old man tooth picking'
At a virtual event on Tuesday, President Joe Biden had several of his embarrassingly confused moments, like the time he couldn't quite remember if his secretary of energy is Governor Granholm or Senator Granholm or Secretary Granholm or former governor, well, you know, the thing.
Or when he asked permission to continue speaking.
Or when he asked permission to stop speaking.
But one of the most reassuring moments had to be when a reporter asked the president if he thinks he "may have underestimated" Russian President Vladimir Putin. At this point, Biden stared blankly for a few beats before grinning weirdly and then ... picking at his teeth. To be fair, it sounded as though Biden was told by his puppeteers that question time was at an end. But someone really should have let him know the cameras were still rolling.

Unlike the president, the folks on Twitter are never at a loss for words:

But give a guy a break. After all, he was probably all tuckered out after the inspiring speech he gave earlier on Tuesday announcing new sanctions against Russia. Here's an impressive clip from that speech:
