(MSN) – President Joe Biden was mocked on social media Friday after making an apparent mistake by reading teleprompter instructions during a speech.
The president was speaking about protecting women's reproductive rights when he made the flub, accidentally saying "end of quote, repeat the line" as he finished a sentence. Later in the day, he signed an executive order to help protect and expand women's access to abortion and contraception following the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court.

"It is noteworthy that the percentage of women who register to vote and cast a ballot is consistently higher than the percentage of the men who do so – end of quote, repeat the line. Women are not without electoral and, or, political – let me be precise: not and, or – or political power," Biden said during the address.
