In a speech last Thursday, President Biden misspoke and called his second in command as “President Harris.”

During a speech providing updates on the vaccination progress, Biden misspoke and referred to his vice president as “President Harris.”

Biden said, “When President Harris and I took …” before momentarily pausing, yet continued his speech and said “a virtual tour of a vaccination site in Arizona not long ago, one of the nurses on that tour injecting people, giving vax each shot, was like administering a dose of hope.”

In the same event, Biden announced that the administration would reach its goal of 100 million vaccines administered in 100 days on Friday which will be the 58th day of the Biden administration. Then, Biden stated that at this point, 65% of people aged 65 years old and older have already received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

This is not the first time that Biden made such gaffes. During a speech on COVID-19 vaccines last December, Biden also mistakenly referred to Vice President Harris as “President-elect,” saying “I took it to instill public confidence in the vaccine. President-elect Harris took hers today for the same reason.”

Said comments by Biden fostered speculation about Biden’s cognitive decline. This gaffe also happened after Biden repeatedly appeared tongue-tied in a campaign.

According to an interview with Andrew Budson, a professor of neurology in Boston University School of Medicine and an expert in cognitive and behavioral neurology there is a gradual increase in brain diseases from ages 60 to 70.

Budson stated that by age 70 at least 10% of people are experiencing dementia. Dementia is a cognitive decline that is sever enough to interfere with someone’s everyday function.

Budson then stated that the cognitive decline progresses at a uniform rate. At ages 60 to 70 there is a gradual increase in risk of developing it. Then after the age of 70, the risk goes up more steeply.

Biden is the oldest elected president in the US history. He was 77 when he was elected and turned 78 on November 20. He will be at the same age as Ronald Reagan when he finished his second term. It is surprising that during the 2020 campaign, there were very few questions about Biden’s physical and mental fitness.

Meanwhile, Harris too once accidentally labeled herself as the “commander-in-chief.”

Harris said at a virtual roundtable in September, “A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States.” She continued, “The Biden-Harris administration will provide access to $100 billion in low-interest loans and investments from minority business owners.”

Then in a Democratic debate last July 2019, Biden again misspoke and called his opponent Sen. Corey Booker, D-NJ as “the president”

When Biden was criticizing Booker’s criminal justice plan, the Democratic president said, “The fact is that the bills that the president, excuse me, the future president, that the senator is talking about, are bills that were passed years ago and they were passed overwhelmingly.”

Booker responded, “Well first of all, I’m grateful that he endorsed my presidency already.”

The media has been busy covering up Biden’s gaffes even though there is an obvious mental decline being observed for more than a year now. The question is, for how long can the media hide the real issue?
