President Biden addressed the country in the 2024 State of The Union last night, hitting on hot-button issues such as immigration, inflation, and America’s international diplomacy. However, the internet had more important things to discuss.

It was a star-studded event, with appearances from George Santos, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Nancy Pelosi, and all your favorite congressional characters. The Republican response from Alabama Senator Katie Britt was, let’s just say, quite the performance.

As always, the Vice President and Speaker of the House sit behind the President during the annual State of the Union address. Kamala Harris and Mike Johnson made their presence known with their own silent dance of standing, sitting, claps, and even the occasional eye roll. Last night, Speaker Johnson’s eyes nearly rolled out of his head and down Pennsylvania Avenue.

President Biden escaped the evening with relatively few gaffes, and he generally appeared energetic and spry for an 81-year-old man. At one point, he even took someone’s phone, switched from the back camera to the front camera, and took a selfie. How’s that for a cognitive assessment?

The internet took note of this, undoubtedly, among many other nuances of the evening. Here are the best memes that came out of Joe Biden’s State of the Union address.
