Canadian Twitter users noticed it after Biden’s big speech that CNN said was the greatest ever and which was actually full of doom and despair. In one of the spots where he attempted to express that the world might continue existing, he had to borrow from someone else. Guess when you’re a Democrat it’s only despairing apocalypse stuff that comes naturally. For the rest you need outside help. In this case, Canadian liberal politician Jack Layton, somewhat of a hero on the left.
“Jack Layton is trending. One of Canada’s most beloved politicians. As Biden butchers his dying words left to us,” wrote one left-wing trans activist, who deleted the tweet after the American right started sharing it.

A number of Canadians are struck by the similar parting words of Biden's speech to the final words of Jack Layton's farewell letter before his death. pic.twitter.com/pvd80XtoHF

Joe Biden lifts some Jack Layton. The last time an American copied a Canadian this obviously was when Lenny Kravitz covered the Guess Who https://t.co/87ZC4ot9mt

Even HuffPo Canada noticed.
The speech’s ending sounded a lot like the late NDP leader Jack Layton’s final words to Canadians. https://t.co/pIpUSQIOID

Think CNN will report it? Or even ASK about it?
I encourage you to ask them, on Twitter. Just send them our link. 🙂
