Have you ever noticed that Joe Biden has a funny way of speaking? From his endearing way of retelling events that never happened to his uncanny ability to make up new words on the spot, it's a fascinating testament to his abilities as a communicator. If only other presidents throughout history could do the same thing!

The Babylon Bee is here to provide the following glimpse at what it would have been like if other presidents spoke like Joe Biden:

  • "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this...uh, you know... the thing!": A truly powerful moment in history from Ronald Reagan.
  • "We choose to go to the moon not because it is easy but because my uncle was eaten by cannibals. True story, folks.": The space race was never the same after this gem from JFK.
  • "Look, fat, get off my plane!": Who could forget this classic line from President Harrison Ford?
  • "Yesterday, December 47th, a day that will live in infamanarathgary, America was attacked by the air and naval forces of the Empire of Mexico.": Franklin D. Roosevelt with one of the nation's most somber messages.
