Biden immediately recovered from a small verbal mistake when realised he was calling Donald Trump George W. Bush which is the name of the former President of the United States of America.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden made a slip on Sunday and appears to have started using the name of former President George W. Bush rather than President Trump, stressing that the 2020 election is important “because who am I going against.”
Biden made a mistake on Sunday at a virtual campaign event “I Will Vote For The Concert,” which featured several high-profile Hollywood names, including John Legend, Dave Matthews, Pink, Cher and others.
“Not because I’m running, but because this is the most important election in a long, long time,” Biden said. “And the character of the country, in my opinion, is literally included in the bulletin. What country are we going to become?
Another four years of George, ah, George … we will find ourselves in a position where, if Trump is elected, we are going to be in a different world. ”
Republicans, who sought to point out any verbal misstep by Biden, cut the video from the campaign event and shared it online. The video was posted on Twitter by RNC Research and GOP Rapid Response Director Steve Guest.
Biden faced questions about his sharpness of mind, but made two actionable speeches against the president, making only one misstep when he didn’t seem to hear moderator Kristen Welker’s question about whether raising the minimum wage would hurt small businesses, and instead talked about need to help out small businesses.
Biden and his representatives criticized Republicans for suggesting that Biden may have mental acuity issues, and Trump even at one point suggested that Biden was taking performance-enhancing drugs.
Trump himself, in a Monday morning tweet, mentioned Biden’s verbal error.
“Yesterday Joe Biden called me George. I couldn’t remember my name. Got some help from the host to get him through the interview. The fake news cartel is working overtime to cover it up! ” Trump said
Biden, 77, is not the only senior politician to face health issues this year.
President Trump, 74, was hospitalized with the coronavirus and his representatives were accused of being opaque when he was taken to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for treatment.
