Joe Biden Confuses Kamala Harris with His Wife, Calls Her 'First Lady’ – WATCH
Biden confused the two women in his life during a speech
President Joe Biden was corrected by his wife Jill Biden after he confused Vice President Kamala Harris as the first lady.
Biden confused the two women in his life during a speech at a Women’s History Month celebration at the White House.
“[T] here’s been a little change in the arrangement of who’s on the stage because of the first lady’s husband contracting COVID,” Biden said.
Biden meant to refer to Vice President Kamala Harris's husband, Doug Emhoff, who is currently known as the “second gentleman.”
Harris dropped out of the event after her husband contracted the COVID-19.
First Lady Jill Biden interrupted her husband to point out his mistake.
“Pardon?” Biden replied.
“You said the first — anyways,” his wife began before giving up as the crowd started laughing.
“That’s right. She’s fine,” Biden said.
“It’s me that’s not together,” Biden continued as the crowd laughed.
“The second la- — the first gentleman,” he said, still incorrectly, as the crowd laughed again.
“How about that?”
Biden reminded the crowd of the number of women he appointed in his administration.
“One person I’m particularly proud of is — was going to be introducing me — is Kamala Harris,” he said.

“He’s fine, but out of an abundance of caution, she decided she wasn’t going to join us today,” Biden said.
“But let’s send her our love because she’s something else.”
