President Joe Biden delivered the annual pomp and circumstance performative event known as the State of the Union on Tuesday, Feb. 7.

But for the sake of the country, the speech was watched, and all the lowlights were pulled, including the elephant in the room. Or nowadays, should it be the balloon in the sky?
