Biden Calls Congressman the Wrong Name Several Times During Event


President Joe Biden repeatedly mixed up the name of a Democratic lawmaker while searching for him among the attendees of an event.

While speaking about the economy on Thursday, Biden recalled a moment during the 2020 Democratic presidential primary when he told attendees of an event to take a seat, but “there wasn’t a single chair in the place.”

“They said, ‘That Biden really is stupid,'” he added.

The president then sought out a congressman but repeatedly called him by the wrong first name.

The New York Post reports he was looking for Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.)

“Where’s Doug?” Biden asked. “Congressman… he’s around here somewhere.”

The president later went to call Beyer by the wrong name a few more times.

“Not a joke, and one more, I’ve been saying this during the last campaign… Doug knows this… Don… look, here’s the deal,” Biden said.

He later said, “Doug, I think you might have been with me when I invited the chairman of the board of three major automobile companies in America.”

He also suffered a slip-up while talking about the amount added to the national debt during former President Donald Trump’s time in office.

“The deficit went up four years in a row, accounting for 40% of the entire 200 years of debt. You hear me?” Biden said.

He added, “No president added more to the debt in four years than my president.”

He appeared to mean predecessor.

Biden also clarified the increase in the deficit accounted for 25% of the debt.
