While having some time to kill waiting at a doctor’s appointment, I looked up this video of people screwing up on live TV. It was mostly when people would lose it during a comedy sketch and not be able to contain themselves.
People losing it on camera or flubbing their lines is nothing new. However, you would think that the President of the United States would be bulletproof as far as that whole thing goes.
Then again, Joe Biden isn’t exactly in the right frame of mind to be doing this. When you get old, you tend to either forget stuff or say the wrong things all of the time. Biden is in the middle of one of those situations yet again.
Another video of a Joe Biden gaffe — or maybe a Freudian slip — is making the rounds on social media. The responses are hilarious.
The video, in which Joe Biden says “President Harris,” has over 2.5 million views across several viral tweets, and became so popular that the phrase “President Harris” was trending on Twitter.
The full sentence containing the gaffe was: “Now when President Harris and I took a virtual tour of a vaccination center, in Arizona, not long ago, one of the nurses on that tour injecting people, giving vaccinations, said that each shot was like administering a dose of hope.”
BIDEN: “When President Harris and I…”

Now, there was a very short pause between the words “I” and “took,” and Democrats are using this to claim that he realized his mistake. But if that were true, wouldn’t he have corrected himself?
This is not the first time Biden accidentally gave Harris a promotion. Speaking about the vaccine in December, Biden stated: “President-elect Harris took hers today for the same reason.”
Left-wing outlets have tried to attribute Biden’s gaffes to a childhood stutter, despite the fact that there was no evidence of a stutter for the majority of his career in the Senate. “President Biden, who is 78-years-old, has struggled with a stutter since his childhood and has occasionally slipped-up while speaking in public,” Newsweek reported.
