President Joe Biden made yet another verbal fumble Thursday, accidentally calling his vice president, Kamala Harris, “President Harris” during a speech about COVID vaccinations.
"This is really important," Biden said, speaking of his administration’s efforts to roll out 100 million doses in his first 100 days. "Because we believe in speed and efficiency must be matched with fairness and equity.”
“Now, when President Harris took a virtual tour of a vaccination center in Arizona not long ago, one of the nurses on that tour — injecting people, giving vaccinations, said that each shot was like administering a dose of hope,” he went on, apparently unaware of the gaffe.
It’s not the first time that gaffe-prone Biden – and even Harris herself – have mislabeled the vice president as the Commander-in-Chief. Biden once referred to Harris as the “president-elect” before taking office, while Harris in September touted a “Harris administration” before quickly adding “together with Joe Biden as president.” Harris was also introduced at a campaign rally in Fort Worth in November as “the next president," leading many to question whether Harris has been intentionally positioned as a Trojan horse in the event that Biden can't complete his four-year term. It's also been noted that Harris has been taking calls with foreign leaders instead of Biden, whose appearances in front of the public and the media have been few, far between, and largely scripted.
