President Joe Biden addressed U.S. troops stationed near the Polish-Ukrainian border on Friday. The president was in Rzeszow, the largest city in southeastern Poland, to get an on-the-ground look at the refugee crisis created by the war in Ukraine.
Biden visited with members of the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division and was introduced by Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin to give some brief remarks.
That’s when things got awkward again!
In the video below you can see Biden as he tells the 82nd Airborne Division stationed in Poland “DON’T JUMP!” and the troops sit in awkward silence, then calls the Declaration of Independence “corny” SECONDS later:
“Thank you, Mr. Secretary. Don’t jump. You guys are used to jumping. Don’t jump,” Biden started off, repeating one of his favorite jokes.
