President Joe Biden did it again, and like before, he sent shivers down the spine of GOP patriots across the country. On Tuesday, Biden was speaking to a crowd in Atlanta, Georgia. He was talking about the Democratic effort to pass two federal bills that are focused on protecting voting rights. While reading the teleprompter, Biden made a gaffe that keeps hounding him. He referred to his vice president, Kamala Harris, as President Harris.
This is not the first time that the president has made this unforced error and failed to properly identify his second in command.
This is what Biden just said, “Last week, President Harris and I stood in the United States Capitol.” He was talking about the Democratic Party’s commemoration of the January 6 riot on the Capitol. It was there that Vice President Harris compared the riot to both Pearl Harbor and the terror attacks on 9/11.
Media and News outlets flagged the mistake right away and it was sent into the cloud of social media.
It was in December of 2020 that President Biden made the same mistake. He called her “President Harris” during a commencement speech at South Carolina State University.
These are Biden’s exact words, “… President Harris, who’s a proud Howard alum, she might have something to say about Delaware State.”
It wasn’t just Biden’s mistake that caused the Georgia speech to be a political catastrophe. It has caused the White House administration to be in damage control mode ever since. The 2022 gubernatorial candidate for the State of Georgia, Stacey Abrams, was not on the stage with President Biden. She claimed that she had a “scheduling conflict.”
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Abrams welcomed the visit from President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, but she would not be able to be with them when they speak in the city of Atlanta that day. She then on social media gave the scheduling conflict reason for her lack of appearance.
There were a number of voting rights groups that also did not attend the Atlanta gathering. Each group later said that they were boycotting the Biden-Harris engagement that would promote voting rights in Atlanta.
Tim Murtaugh, a former Donald Trump campaign spokesperson, said that the absence of Stacy Abrams was an incredible snub of both the president and the vice president. They were both in the capital city of Abram’s state and they were talking about her signature issue in her campaign. How could it be that she would have something more important than that as a conflict?
Murtaugh said, “Gives you an idea of how politically toxic Joe Biden is.”
Biden spoke about Abrams and claimed that everything was “cordial” between the two people. He said that he spoke with Abrams that morning and they have a great relationship. He said to reporters on Tuesday morning that they just got their scheduling mixed up, but they were all on the same page.
President Biden is now 79-years-old, and as the leader of the Democratic Party, he has a history of critical mistakes.
While he was on the campaign trail, he told an Indian man that in his state of Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian Americans moving from India. He said that you can’t go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. He added that he was not joking!
The list goes on…He once called former President Barack Obama “Barack America.” And he also told a veteran confined to a wheelchair to “stand up” while giving a speech that was meant to honor veterans for their sacrifices.
Can you imagine the stories we will have if he has another four years after his first term in office…or will we really have President Harris then?
