Joe Biden added another gaffe to his long list of bloopers after he said he and “President Harris”, his vice-president, took a virtual tour of a vaccination centre. Many who listened to the conference begun ridiculing the head of state with tweets pointing out his mistake. The president is known for his regular gaffes such as referring to former Prime Minister Theresa May as Margaret Thatcher and saying the word “jobs” was a three-letter word.
During his speech, the US president said that ethnic minorities are the worse hit in the pandemic and said that “speed and efficiency” are key to tackle the pandemic.
But while he was delivering a monologue, Biden appeared to mix-up and stumble on his words when referring to Kamala Harris.
He said: “When President Harris and I took a virtual tour of a vaccination tour in Arizona not long ago one of the nurses on that tour said that each shot was like administering a dose of hope.”
Many on Twitter grew concerned over the comments as Biden’s health is a regular issue that many people question.
One Twitter user said: “Biden makes mistakes, he’s old.”
Another added: “That ‘stuttering’ problem appears to be getting worse.”
A third person said: “On the same day that Vladimir Putin wishes him good health.”
A fourth noted: “This guy is a mess.”
Biden states that the US will hit its 100 million dose target on March 19 as some states begin to ease restrictions for their population.
The president added that celebrations for independence day on July 4 could go ahead if everyone went to get vaccinated.
The Democrat said the date could mark the day when America was “independent from the virus”.
