President Joe Biden's errant remark about making money from the sale of state secrets has gone viral. Biden, who is known for frequently making mistakes and losing his train of thought while speaking, was the target of widespread mockery and criticism after a clip of the days-old remarks was shared to Twitter on Monday.

Biden said on Friday during a meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Big Tech CEOs, "I was just thanking the — anyway, I started off without you, and I sold a lot of state secrets and a lot of very important things that we shared."

During a speech, Biden made a joke about technology causing global change. He then followed with a serious discussion about its impact. Later, a Republican National Committee Twitter account shared a clip of the remark. The official White House transcript omitted the president's justification behind the comment. This caused Biden to regret his words, highlighting how modern technology can distort context and spread misinformation.

Despite receiving over a million "views" within two hours of its release, Joe Biden's recent video caused quite a stir. Some drew comparisons to former President Donald Trump's case involving federal documents, jesting that the video was a Freudian slip or reference to bribery allegations that Biden has dismissed as "malarkey." 
Notably, ex-Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) called out Democrats, urging them to speak up on the issue: "Well, is it honesty or a murky haze? We've yet to hear from you." Conversely, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) tweeted, "Biden is admitting his crimes out loud because his brain is malfunctioning. Abolish Biden! It's insulting to America."
Highlighting the potential double-standard in play, Greg Price, director of communications for the State Freedom Caucus Network, pointed out that "Donald Trump is being indicted for things that Joe Biden is admitting to doing out loud."

More than two-thirds of registered voters—68%—say they have moderate to serious concerns about Biden's fitness to serve because he "does not have the necessary mental and physical health" to be president, according to a recent NBC News poll.
