Biden Makes Another Gaffe, Calls Vaccine Program ‘COVID’ 3 Times - WATCH
Biden made the remarks during a press conference on Sunday,
Democrat Joe Biden seems to be on a role with making gaffes this week with his latest blunder relating to the global vaccine program, which he referred has COVID, not once, but three times.
Biden made the remarks during a press conference on Sunday, which added to his long list of embarrassing gaffes.
The White House transcript corrected Biden’s remarks with brackets:
I committed that we would provide a half a billion — a half a billion beyond the 80 million we’ve already done — half a billion doses of Pfizer vaccine, which we contracted to pay for, in addition to money we put into the COVID [COVAX] project, which is that COVID [COVAX] is — and I know you all know, but a lot of people may not know what COVID [COVAX] is — that is a system whereby they’re going to provide funding for states to be able to get access to vaccines on their own, as well.
Biden was speaking to reporters during a press conference in the UK after the G7 Summit of world leaders, where he has been embarrassing the United States.
Some journalists seemed confused about Biden’s statements about “COVID," most notably after he said, "a lot of people may not know what COVID is.”
But what Biden meant to says was COVAX, which is the global effort the World Health Organization started developing for countries to access coronavirus vaccines.
Biden has appeared visibly confused during his speech before world leaders at the G7 Summit.
Biden also repeatedly confusing Syria with Libya during the conference.
He also became confused while losing his place and trailing off several times.
The clip was widely shared on Twitter with President Biden’s critics commenting on his longtime tendency to gaffe, and questioning the state of his cognitive abilities, which has been under scrutiny since he launched his campaign for president.
Earlier, Biden was reminded by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson of something that had just happened moments before, which prompted world leaders to laugh at him.
