President Joe Biden raised eyebrows as he finished remarks at the U.S. Capitol by saying “end of message.”
During his eulogy for former Senator Bob Dole (R-KS) on Capitol Hill, the president quoted the late senator who was lying in state and then read the words “end of message,” prompting many to wonder if he had, again, accidentally read something he was not supposed to or whether the phrase was part of what he meant to say aloud.
“And because Bob deserves the final word, I’d like to read a portion of his final message that he left to the country that I hope we all listen to in the days and weeks and months to come,” Biden said, reading from what appeared to be notes in front of him.
“And I quote Bob Dole,” he continued, going on to read Dole’s words.
Nearing the end of the quote, Biden said:
“We’ve always found ways to come together. We could find that unity again – and the message said – end of message.”

Many were quick to see the moment as another one of Biden’s gaffes, similar to when many thought he forgot he was reading off a teleprompter, saying “end of quote.”
Joe Biden has perfected the art of incorporating the instructions on his speeches into his speeches end of message.

Whoever Biden’s speech writer is, they really need to stop putting “end of message” on the page.

Other Twitter users, however, pushed back, noting that reading the “end of message” was intentional.
I’m no Biden fan, but to be fair, he was reading a quote from Bob Dole verbatim.

exactly…he was reading a quoted message. Normally, one would say “end of quote” but end of message is fine.

He misreads many things but I believe he read this script correctly.
