Gaffe-prone US President Joe Biden seemingly forgot the name of Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, during a press conference yesterday, announcing and hailing an historic new security partnership between the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia.
The important new security scheme will see the three Anglophone powerhouses work together to “promote security and prosperity”, deepening co-operation on military capabilities. But despite its historic significance, US President Biden appeared to forget the name of one of his two new partners.
In cringe inducing remarks, the President referred to UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson by his first name before adding: “And I want to thank, err, that fellow down under. Thank you very much pal. I appreciate it, Mr Prime Minister.”
It’s not the first time that Biden, who was recently branded a “feckless, dementia-ridden piece of crap” by the mother of a fallen US soldier, has embarrassed himself with verbal gaffes in public.
This website reported on Monday remarks from Biden that were so bizarre that Sky News Australia host Rita Panahi offered to pay any viewer who could manage to decipher them.
And back in July he sparked serious concern among American voters over his mental fitness to hold office, after strange remarks were broadcast from a CNN Town Hall event.
“And the question is… whether or not we should be in a position where you er um are… Why can’t the the the experts say: ‘we know that this virus is in fact…’ er er um er is is it’s going to be… oh excuse me we we we know why all the drugs approved are not temporarily approved but permanently approved” he said, in one typically eloquent remark, before going on to discuss the idea of space aliens walking the earth.
Speaking after one of Biden’s first public outings before the press as President, Jackson said his performance “should concern every American who wants to know that their president is fit for duty and in control.”
