President Joe Biden struggled to express himself while speaking about the need to communicate clearly Wednesday on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
“So there’s a lot of major things we’ve done, but what we haven’t done is we haven’t been able to communicate it in a way that is ah um…make me say another way,” Biden told Kimmel.
“Well see, that’s kind of perfect, you haven’t been able to communicate,” Kimmel said, apparently referencing Biden’s gaffe.

“It has changed. Oh listen, I get it,” Kimmel interjected.
Biden then launched into a monologue about journalism.
“I know you get it, you overstand it. You don’t just understand it, you overstand it. But here’s the deal.

So instead of asking a question… anyway, everything just gets sensationalism in ways that I’m… but I’m convinced that we can get through this. We have to get through it. And one other this is, look,” Biden continued.
“I’m going to take a break, and then we will talk a little bit more,” Kimmel said. “We have some of those commercials. We have some biracial commercials we need to show!”
