President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address was met with little fanfare over remarks considered bland, while Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has moved audiences to tears in recent days.
Fox News contrasted the speeches of the two presidents in an article called “A tale of two presidents” on Thursday.

“Putin may circle Kyiv with tanks, but he’ll never gain the hearts and souls of the Iranian people,” Biden said in a gaffe during his speech.
In contrast, a translator for a speech for Zelensky on Saturday was moved to tears by his motivating words during a dark time of war.
