Imagine getting up on stage at a nationally televised event and singing "Happy Birthday" to someone whose name you didn't know or couldn't remember. Now imagine you're the 80-year-old president of the United States and you're about to announce your candidacy for reelection.
Welcome to another week in the life of Sleepy Joe Biden.
Biden was attempting to celebrate the birthday of Arndrea Waters King, the wife of Martin Luther King III, during the National Action Network's annual breakfast honoring the civil rights icon. "Happy Birthday, dear [gibberish, not even close to Arndrea]" the president sang, awkwardly trailing off once he realized his brain had stopped working.
It was one of several botched public appearances Biden took part in this week. It wasn't even the only time he bungled the name of a prominent black woman. Biden mispronounced the name of his own vice president, which is racist, and disgraced himself again while attempting to cite Supreme Court justice Ketanji Brown Jackson. "Those are the words of Kejan, Kejan, Ketanji Drown Jackson," Biden said.
Bear in mind that journalists and other so-called experts are going to spend the next two years lecturing you about how the future of American democracy depends on Joe Biden getting reelected and serving in the White House until he's 86 years old.
Have a great weekend!
