In his lat­est ver­bal stum­ble, Pres­i­dent Biden described him­self as the “first black woman to serve with a black pres­i­dent” dur­ing a radio interview. 

The 81-year-old pres­i­dent made the bizarre claim as he strug­gled to find the right phras­ing while being inter­viewed on a Philadel­phia radio station.

Biden’s gaffe comes amid grow­ing con­cerns over his age and cog­ni­tive abil­i­ties, par­tic­u­lar­ly in the wake of his recent dis­as­trous debate per­for­mance against for­mer Pres­i­dent Trump. 

Dur­ing the inter­view, the pres­i­dent made sev­er­al oth­er slips, includ­ing claim­ing he was the “first pres­i­dent that got elect­ed statewide in the state of Delaware, when I was a kid.”

The pres­i­dent also dis­cussed his sup­port for Black rep­re­sen­ta­tion in pol­i­tics, includ­ing the appoint­ment of Ketan­ji Brown Jack­son as the first Black woman to the Supreme Court and select­ing Kamala Har­ris as the first Black woman vice president. 

How­ev­er, his “first black woman to serve with a black pres­i­dent” remark stood out as a par­tic­u­lar­ly egre­gious error.

Biden’s cam­paign spokesper­son dis­missed the medi­a’s focus on the pres­i­den­t’s stum­bles, call­ing it “absurd” and claim­ing his speech pat­terns are “nor­mal for Joe Biden for his entire career.” 

How­ev­er, the lat­est gaffe is like­ly to fur­ther fuel con­cerns about Biden’s fit­ness for office and the poten­tial need for him to step aside in 2024.
