During a speech at the National Safer Communities Summit in West Hartford, Connecticut, President Joe Biden caused some confusion when he ended his address by saying, “God save the Queen, man.”

The remark came as he informed the crowd about an approaching storm and his inability to shake hands with all the attendees. However, he reassured them that he would still be available for photos with each section of the audience.

The unexpected phrase, a reference to the British monarchy, may have caught some people off guard and sparked some confusion.

“I will stand in front of each section – no, I really mean it – if you can see the camera, they can see you. It is the least consequential part of this whole meeting for you, I promise,” President Biden assured the audience.

As he concluded his speech, he made the remark about the Queen, referring to her as a way to conclude his address in a light-hearted manner.

However, it’s important to note that the information provided about the Queen is not accurate.

Queen Elizabeth II, as of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, is still alive and reigning as the monarch of the United Kingdom.

After President Biden’s remark of “God Save the Queen, man” at the end of his speech, critics wasted no time in seizing upon the phrase, and soon enough, “God Save the Queen” was trending on Twitter.

However, supporters of the president were quick to highlight that he has used this phrase before as a way to conclude his speeches.

To address the confusion, the White House press office sent out an email clarifying the president’s remarks.

According to the statement, President Biden was unable to engage in the full ropeline due to the weather conditions, and his comment about the Queen was directed at someone in the crowd.

This clarification aimed to provide context and explain that the remark was not intended as a reference to any specific event or situation.
