US President Joe Biden delivered his first State of the Union address on Tuesday, March 1, in Washington, DC. Vice President Kamala Harris and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sat behind him while he addressed the members of Congress and the country.

Apart from Lauren Boebert getting booed for heckling Biden during his speech, the president was trolled for mistakenly calling Ukrainian people "Iranians". Furthermore, the way Biden concluded his speech left people confused. Finishing an hour-long speech, Biden said, "God bless you all, and may God protect our troops. Thank you. Go get 'em!" Social media users were quick to comment on the moment and question it.

NBC News' Andrea Mitchell said, "There was a strange moment at the end where he said, 'Go get 'em'. That was audible to the audience and we're not quite sure what he means. I think he's talking about Vladimir Putin and the bad guys over there, but it was an ad-lib that kind of felt strange."



 

 

One user said, "I thought I hallucinated the last line of Biden's speech last night. I thought he must've mumbled, 'Get me out of here or get Corn Pop on the line!' But no. According to the PREPARED text he really did say: 'God bless you all & may God protect our troops. Thank you. Go get 'em'."

Another commented, "So, someone needs to ask Psaki what Biden meant when he ended his speech with "God Bless our troops. Go get 'em." Sounds like he is sending them to war." A third questioned, "Why did Biden end his speech with 'GO GET HIM' ??? Who is he talking about?"



 



 



 

 

While one user commented, "Biden ends his #SOTU speech with 'God bless our troops, go get 'em!' WTF is he talking about," while another asked, "'Go get 'em?' Joe Biden, what does this mean?" A third questioned, "What did 'Go get him' mean? Sincere question."



 



 



 

 

One user joked, "My thoughts are with the White House speechwriter whose closing statement just got replaced with 'go get em'!" Another tweeted, "Now I've got all this energy, but I've got no idea where to go nor get 'em. #SOTU." A third explained, "I believe it's like 'Go get 'em!' as encouraging Americans to get after it. But it would be bad ass if he ordered a raid on some terrorist tonight and we'll find out tomorrow 'they' got him. A la Obama and WH correspondents dinner."



 



 



 

 

One commented, "Guys, guys, Joe Biden didn't say 'go get 'em' or 'go get him.' He said 'go get xym.'" Another said, "Last line of Biden's speech: "Go get him" or "go get 'em"? And what the f**k is he talking about."

A third mused, "Prayers for the WH speechwriting team who've likely tossed the #SOTU draft they've been working on since Thanksgiving. The world has changed overnight & Biden's prescient decisions set the course. He's a whole new leader & deserves a fresh deadline-driven speech. Go get 'em team."
