Joe Biden slammed after confusing Kamala Harris with his wife Jill in embarrassing gaffe

JOE Biden has been slammed after appearing to confuse Kamala Harris with first lady Jill in another embarrassing gaffe.

The commander in chief, 79, made the blunder while making an address marking Equal Pay Day on Tuesday.


Biden said: “There’s been a little change in arrangement of who is on the stage because of the first lady’s husband contracting Covid.”

The president quickly corrected himself after realizing that his remarks meant he had caught the bug.

Biden then pointed to his wife Jill, quipping: “That’s right, she’s fine. Second lady – the first gentleman how about that?

“I’m Joe Biden. I’m Jill Biden’s husband and proud of it.”

Despite appearing to make a joke out of the situation, Twitter users noticed the error, slamming the president.

Critics branded Biden a joke and a clown following the slip-up.

It comes as Harris’ husband Doug Emhoff tested positive for Covid on Tuesday.

And, former President Barack Obama revealed on Sunday he was suffering from a “scratchy throat” after contracting the bug.

Biden’s latest blunder comes just days after he misspoke during the State of Union address.

In the lengthy speech, he accidentally said Iranians when referring to the Ukrainian people amid the conflict with Russia.

The commander-in-chief said: “Putin may circle Kyiv with tanks, but he’ll never gain the hearts and souls of the Iranian people.”

The mistake was quickly mentioned on social media by journalists and political commentators.

“Did Biden say the Iranian people?” wrote Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Twitter.

GAFFE-PRONE JOE

Joe Biden just said Putin will never weaken the will of the Iranian people. He meant the Ukrainian people. Good lord.” said political commentator Clay Travis.

The president has dropped several clangers and blunders since his inauguration in January 2021.

Last June, Biden accidentally referred to Vladimir Putin as President Trump.

Biden mistook the Russian President for the brash New Yorker as he delved into what the leaders discussed at their summit which was held in Geneva, Switzerland.

He inadvertently said: "I caught part of President Trump's … eh Putin's … press conference."

In September, Biden appeared to forget the name of Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison as he resorted to calling him the “Fellow Down Under”.

The Democrat appeared to fall asleep during the opening speeches at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland before he was seemingly woken up by one of his staffers.

He was embarrassingly caught on camera folding his arms and gradually dozing off as the conference kicked off.

Biden's eyes closed for a few seconds before he woke himself. They shut again for a second time before a man in a suit came over to stir him awake.

And, while speaking at Arlington Cemetery in November, the president blundered over his words while talking about the baseball icon Satchel Paige’s career in the Negro League.

Biden said: “I’ve adopted the attitude of the great negro at the time, pitcher in the Negro leagues, went on to become a great pitcher in the pros, in the MLB after Jackie Robinson, his name was Satchel Paige.”
