President Obama delivered his 2014 State of the Union address and while we expected to be well informed of the issues in America that he wants to tackle during his second term, we were met with a number of heart-warming, funny and just plain weird moments.
Must Read: History Of The State Of The Union
Check out five of our favorite moments from the 2014 State of the Union address:
1. Joe Biden’s Weird Hand Gestures
Joe Biden is the definition of–When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong. At one point during President Obama’s State of the Union speech, Biden suddenly lost his focus, a big smirk spread across his face and he began a conversation with someone in the audience with hand signals. It only lasted a moment, but what a moment it was!
2. “Mad Men Episode”
While President Obama’s speech wasn’t chick full of jokes, he did manage to pull out a few chuckles from the crowd. One of the biggest laughs came after his “Mad Men” reference.
Today, women make up about half our workforce. But they still make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. That is wrong, and in 2014, it’s an embarrassment. A woman deserves equal pay for equal work. She deserves to have a baby without sacrificing her job. A mother deserves a day off to care for a sick child or sick parent without running into hardship – and you know what, a father does, too. It’s time to do away with workplace policies that belong in a “Mad Men” episode. This year, let’s all come together – Congress, the White House, and businesses from Wall Street to Main Street – to give every woman the opportunity she deserves. Because I firmly believe when women succeed, America succeeds.
