In an unexpected turn of events, President Joe Biden delivered impromptu remarks on Thursday evening.

The President, known for his occasional tardiness, was late to his own briefing. His comments were made in response to a report released by his Department of Justice, scrutinizing Biden's handling of classified documents.

Biden commenced his remarks by commending his administration for not pressing charges against him. He then expressed his disagreement with the assertions made in the 380-page report by Special Counsel Hur. Biden attributed his difficulty in responding to certain questions to the international events occurring at the time, specifically the new conflict in Israel, which was initiated by a Hamas-led massacre on October 7.

After delivering his prepared remarks, including reading "end of quote," Biden fielded questions from journalists. He held his staff accountable for the classified documents found in his garage, stating, "I take responsibility for not having seen exactly what my staff was doing. Boxes going in and out. Things that appeared in my garage things that came out of my home. Things that were removed not by me but my staff. By my staff."

The briefing was notably more contentious than many others held since Biden assumed the presidency. The report provided White House reporters with an opportunity to probe deeper, leading to a flurry of overlapping questions.

Biden's primary objective seemed to be distinguishing his case involving classified documents from that of his predecessor, Donald Trump.

"I was especially pleased to see Special Counsel make clear, a stark distinction and difference between this case and Mr. Trump's case," Biden stated. He highlighted his cooperation with the investigation, including sitting for interviews and allowing his home to be searched. He also emphasized the security of the documents stored in his home compared to those in Trump's possession.

Biden criticized the Special Counsel for inquiring about the date of his son's death, a question he was unable to answer as noted in the report.

Addressing the question of whether he committed a crime by taking classified documents upon leaving the Vice Presidency, Biden stated, "the bottom line is the matter is now closed. I'm going to continue what I've always focused on my job of the President, United States of America."

Biden fielded questions from reporters, including one from Peter Doocy, who quoted the Special Counsel's report describing Biden as a "well-meaning elderly man with a poor memory."

"I'm well-meaning, I'm an elderly man, and I know what the hell I'm doing," Biden retorted. "I'm the president and I put this country back on its feet. I don't need his recommendation."

When Doocy questioned his memory and ability to continue as President, Biden responded, "My memory is so bad I let you speak," and insisted that his memory was fine.

As he exited the briefing room, Biden reiterated, "I did not break the law." He returned to address a final question about the hostage situation in Gaza, where Hamas continues to hold Israelis kidnapped on October 7.

In his response, Biden confused Mexico and Egypt, claiming that the situation in Gaza has been "over the top."

"As you know, initially, the president of Mexico, [El-]Sisi, did not want to open up the gate to allow humanitarian material to get in. I talked to him, I convinced him to open the gate," he stated, mistakenly referring to El-Sisi, the president of Egypt, as the president of Mexico.

This error occurred shortly after he assured reporters and the American public that he was the most qualified person to lead the nation.
