Biden Calls Himself 'First Black Woman' in Latest Gaffe (Video)

U.S. President Joe Biden stumbled over his words during a radio interview with Philadelphia’s WURD, mistakenly describing himself as a black woman. This slip of the tongue has added fuel to the calls for the 81-year-old leader to reconsider his bid for re-election.

In the interview, Biden appeared to mix himself up with Vice President Kamala Harris. He stated, “By the way, I’m proud to be, as I said, the first vice president, first black woman… to serve with a black president. Proud to be involved with the first black woman on the Supreme Court. There’s so much that we can do because, look… we’re the United States of America.”

Biden was likely referring to his appointment of Kamala Harris as the first black female vice president of the United States. His comment about serving with a black president may have been a mix-up with his own tenure as vice president under Barack Obama. The reference to the Supreme Court pertains to Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first black female justice appointed by Biden in 2022.

This gaffe comes amidst reports that President Biden, addressing nearly two dozen Democratic governors at the White House on Wednesday night, mentioned he needs more sleep and fewer hours of work. The New York Times reported that Biden indicated he could only manage the demands of his role between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and should avoid events after 8 p.m.

During the same gathering, Biden humorously responded to a question from Hawaii Governor Josh Green about his health by saying the problem was “just my brain,” a remark that reportedly went unrecognized by at least one state leader in attendance.
