President Joe Biden provoked laughter from a crowd in Virginia Beach on Tuesday after he told a joke about Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

At an event about affordable health care, Biden recalled that he had openly "negotiated" with Republicans during his State of the Union address.

Mention of Biden's back-and-forth with Republicans on Social Security earned him cheers from the audience.

"I've been around for a lot of State of the Unions; I never saw one where the president got to negotiate in the open with everybody," the president said to laughter.

"Remember when Marjorie Taylor Greene was yelling, 'Liar, liar, Biden's a liar,'" Biden said mockingly.

At that point, Biden made the sign of a cross on his chest, presumably biting his tongue instead of criticizing Greene.

The crowd roared with laughter.

"I'm going to be good," Biden insisted.
