President Biden slipped up yet again and read out the words “end of message” from his notes during his eulogy for former Sen. Bob Dole (R-KS) on Capitol Hill Thursday. Reading off of his notes, the President quoted Dole on the importance of “principles over party.”

According to the transcript, Biden said the following:

And I quote Bob Dole:
"I cannot pretend that I have not been a loyal champion [of] my party, but [I’ve] always served my country best when I did [it] so first and foremost as an American. When we prioritize principles over party and humanity over personal legacy — when we do that, we accomplish far more as a nation. By leading with shared faith in each other, we become America at its best." He went on to say, "a beacon of hope, a source of comfort in crisis, a shield against those who threaten freedom."
"Our nation has certainly faced periods of division. But at the end of the day, we have always found ways to come together. We can find that unity again."

Biden went on, “And then the message said, end of message.”

The President did not correct himself but continued speaking from his notes as he concluded the eulogy.

As the country honors him following his death Sunday at the age of 98, the body of former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, R-Kan., is lying in state in the Capitol Rotunda Thursday.

President Biden and congressional leaders praised the native Kansan is an American hero and "giant of our history."

Lying in state is one of the most solemn American traditions, reserved only for select prominent individuals. Dole becomes only the 33rd person in U.S. history to lie in state in the Rotunda. Since the turn of the century, only Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, and Presidents George H.W. Bush, Ford, and Reagan have laid in state in that location.

As part of Thursday's proceedings, a military honor guard brought Dole's casket up the 34 steps on the East Front of the Capitol and into the Rotunda, the casket draped in an American flag.

President Biden urged unity as a way to honor Dole. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell hailed his work to pass the Americans with Disability Act.

Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said that Dole "redefined and elevated what it means to serve the country" and called him an "incredible American statesman."

And House Speaker Nancy Pelosi added that "It's hard to think of anyone who was more worthy of having a flag draped over his coffin because of his great patriotism to our country."
