President Joe Biden committed a teleprompter gaffe on Monday, spelling out the “dot” in “dot-com” while reading a website address during a speech.
“If you get any questionable calls, please tell us by going to report fraud, report fraud, D-O-T-F-T-C dot gov,” Biden said while making a confused expression.
Viewers following Biden’s instructions would not be able to access the website, as spelling out the word “dot” instead of pressing the corresponding key does not work when entering a web URL.
Biden was roundly mocked on Twitter for the gaffe.

I. Am. Not. Reading. Off. A. Teleprompter.
End of quote. Repeat the line.

Biden claimed last Wednesday to have climbed the massive walls of the Grand Canyon “from the river up” until he reached the top, where he then “looked at it from the top down.”
During remarks made in Colorado after creating his first national monument, the president gave the American people a glimpse into his past adrenaline junky lifestyle after muttering something about the Rio Grande river in Texas.
“To stand there on the edge of a cliff in the Rio Grande to, you know, looking at one thing and it’s just, there’s not many cliffs but then head up to the Grande Canyon. It’s a cathedral. I mean, it takes your breath away. I’ve climbed it from the river up and I’ve looked at it from the top down.”
