President Biden wished “fair winds and following seas” to the U.S. Naval Academy’s class of 2022 Friday in Annapolis, setting the stage for the world the more than 1,200 midshipmen are entering as they graduate.
“Well, midshipmen — you made it! You made it!” the president began.
Mr. Biden has delivered the Naval Academy graduation speech on two other occasions, in 2010 and 2015, when he was vice president, but Friday marked the first time he gave the address as president. More than 20,000 people attended at the ceremony, including graduates, families, Naval leaders and members of Congress. The president joked about pranks the graduating class has pulled during their time at the academy, and kept the tradition of excusing minor infractions.
As always Biden’s obvious cognitive and mental decline was obvious!
Biden revived his frequently ridiculed stage whisper Friday while addressing the US Naval Academy’s Class of 2022, stooping over his microphone to remind them that “I’m your commander-in-chief.”

President Biden told graduating midshipmen at the Naval Academy Friday that he applied to the school in 1965 — but a quick check of his biography shows problems with the story.
Biden said he applied to Annapolis with a letter from then-Delaware Sen. J. Caleb Boggs, but the year he cited — 1965 — is the same year he graduated from the University of Delaware. The academy doesn’t offer graduate degrees.
“I was told the Class of ’72 is here. I was appointed to the academy in 1965 by a senator who I was running against in 1972 — never planned it that way. I wasn’t old enough to be sworn in. I was only 29 years old when I was running,” Biden said.
“He was a fine man. His name is J. Caleb Boggs,” the president went on. “I didn’t come to the academy because I wanted to be a football star. And you had a guy named [Roger] Staubach and [Joe] Bellino here. So I went to Delaware.”
Joe Biden falsely claimed he “was appointed to the [Naval] Academy in 1965” while speaking to Naval Academy graduates today.

Is Joe Biden a pathological liar or a dementia patient?
This was the main question that Americans have asked online!
