WATCH: Biden Refers to Kamala as ‘President Harris’


President Joe Biden mistakenly referred to Vice President Kamala Harris as “President Harris,” sparking derision from critics who believe Harris is the real power in the White House.

The video: The president made the gaffe on Thursday, while delivering a brief address about the progress of the nation’s COVID-19 vaccination program.

  • “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 said. “A dose of hope. Thatโ€™s how she phrased it.”

Context: Conservative critics have cited Biden’s frequent gaffes to question whether the 78-year-old, the oldest person to ever assume the office, is mentally and physically fit enough for the job.

  • Detractors have speculated that Biden’s allegedly diminished state means Harris is the one running the show in the White House.
  • The most recent flub about “President Harris” only added further fuel to the fire, as pundits on the right mocked Biden on social media.
  • “Heโ€™s literally incapable of getting even the basics right,” tweeted Donald Trump Jr. on Thursday.
