Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) became a laughing stock on Twitter after he failed to start a standing ovation for President Joe Biden during his address at State of the Union. On Tuesday night, March 1, Biden criticized his predecessor for tax cuts as he said, “Unlike the $2 trillion tax cut passed in the previous administration that benefitted the top one percent of Americans, the American Rescue Plan—,” before being cut off by boos and then adding: “The American Rescue Plan helped working people and left no one behind.”

However, as the POTUS, who briefly paused during the address, was in between his criticism of Trump, Schumer was seen standing from his seat to give an ovation. But he soon realized his mistake before looking around, giving an awkward smile, and going back to his place. Schumer, however, could not stop himself as Biden completed his statement. He and other Democrats got up from their chairs and clapped for the leader.

In his speech, Biden also added: “In fact—our economy created over 6.5 million new jobs just last year, more jobs created in one year than ever before in the history of America. Our economy grew at a rate of 5.7% last year, the strongest growth in nearly 40 years, the first step in bringing fundamental change to an economy that hasn’t worked for the working people of this nation for too long.”

However, the 71-year-old’s initial failed attempt was captured and widely shared on Twitter with a user saying, “not enough training for the performing seals! ... give them all a fish anyway!!! Kamaltoe🦭 Skelator🦭 Schmuk🦭.” The second one sarcastically wrote: “Chuck Schumer getting up to a chorus of boo's is the night's first fantastic moment.” The third user said, “He forgot to study the script.” “But I really like that guy to his right (our left) who just starts laughing at premieJack Schumer. Priceless,” the fourth one added.

A tweet read, “the second biggest idiot in DC prematurely getting up to clap for the first biggest idiot in DC.” Another tweet stated, “Isn't today a great day to forgive student debt, Chuck? I mean...I thought that's what you were saying. Or...didn't you mean it?”

“Breaking News: We found out the reason for  Chuck Schumer premature clapping and why Nancy was acting funny rubbing her hands, dancing! See the reason below (oh it’s Russian vodka),” a person shared. Another person said: “That stupid attempt at Schumer's standing ovation and pelosi's smile and laugh at the end of the clip reminded me of waterboy ‘slap hands, slap hands!’”

Meanwhile, Biden used his first State of the Union address to insist on funding the police, just opposite to what several leftists had demanded earlier. He said, “The answer is not to defund the police. It's to fund the police. Fund them. Fund them.” The Democratic leader also noted that “Investigating, crime prevention, and community policing, cops who walk the beat, who know the neighborhood and can restore trust and safety. Let's not abandon our streets or choose between safety and equal justice. Let's come together and protect our communities, restore trust, and hold law enforcement accountable.”
