US President Joe Biden again misspoke during a speech at the White House, confusing the title of his office.
So, he told the audience that he was the first senator from Delaware when he wanted to say “president.” Biden made the mistake of pointing to University of Delaware Biden Institute employee Madina Wilson-Anton.
“There were few senators (meaning presidents – ed.) from Delaware. This is a small state. As a matter of fact, they never existed. Therefore, I want to take the opportunity to introduce Madina Wilson-Anton,” Biden said at an event in Bely house dedicated to the end of Ramadan, the holy month for Muslims.
This is far from Biden’s first slip of the tongue. In early April, he credited the wife of former US President Barack Obama, Michelle, with the position of vice president during the period when he himself was in this position. In addition, Biden repeatedly called Vice President Kamala Harris president, mispronounced the name of Russian leader Vladimir Putin, confused the words “vaccination” and “escalation”, as well as Syria with Libya and Iraq with Iran. Biden, who turns 80 this year, is the oldest U.S. president in history, and critics often accuse him of mental decline, citing frequent gaffes and times when he loses his train of thought.
