Over the years, President Joe Biden has made many questionable comments to the media, and some of those have turned out to be false statements.
His supporters claim he simply misspeaks occasionally, though others point toward evidence of a cognitive decline.
And the most recent hot mic moment has people scratching their heads.
The Republican National Committee research team uncovered a strange moment between POTUS and a member of the Salvation Army.
Biden is heard saying that he spent time with the Secret Service in Poland and Ukraine, which kicked off a firestorm of controversy:
"And here we have folks from the Salvation Army…"

Everyone is trying to figure out what President Biden was referring to, or what he meant specifically with these comments.
This happened when Biden visited the El Paso Migrant Services Center and spoke to a Salvation Army official.
In looking back, we know POTUS traveled to Poland and visited the 82nd Airborne Division shortly after the Ukraine/Russia war kicked off.
Biden also has a significant history with Ukraine; he traveled there to deliver a farewell address in 2017 just before Trump entered the Oval Office.
That marked Biden’s 6th visit in 7 years, so he is familiar with the area.
But the White House hasn’t yet clarified his comments about spending time with the Secret Service, and nobody can seem to figure out exactly what Joe was talking about.
Biden has been fact-checked several times over during his term in office, and sometimes we find that there’s no evidence to support his statements.
We might have to wait to get some clarification on this one — if we ever get it.
- President Joe Biden told a Salvation Army official he “spent time” with the Secret Service in Poland and Ukraine.
- It’s unclear what Biden was referring to in these statements.
- Biden has some history with Poland and Ukraine, though the White House hasn’t tried to clear up these comments.
