The event was organized to raise money for the fight against AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. In this regard, a staggering $14.25 billion was raised, the highest amount ever committed to a multilateral health organization.
In his speech, Mr. Biden thanked all participants for their contributions. “Thank you for fighting for what matters. This is all about saving lives – there is no ambiguity here – working with partners to ensure all communities are healthy and strong – at least have a chance to be healthy and strong; that people everywhere can live in dignity,” he said, according to the speech uploaded on the White House website.
“Let’s demonstrate our collective strength to face the challenges that matter most in people’s lives and make progress. We have so much – so much to do, so let’s get to work. And thank you all for everything what you do,” he continues. said.
But when the president turned right to leave the podium, he paused, wondering if he should come down from here. The host then read out a thank you note that caught the attention of the 79-year-old.
The video has been viewed nearly two million times. Twitter users posted a barrage of comments.
“Is that music in an ice cream truck?” a user has responded. “I have a feeling this is Scary Movie 3,” said another.
This isn’t the first time the US president has been mocked for blunders. In April, a video showed Mr Biden reaching out for a handshake after a speech when no one was around.
