US President Joe Biden made a slip of the tongue during a speech at the White House marking the anniversary of the storming of the Capitol on Friday, January 6.
The head of state mixed up the names of the months “July” and “January”, which sound similar in English, and unwittingly “moved” the date of the riots by six months.
“What happened on July 6 had international implications beyond what any of you can comprehend,” he said.
At the same event, Biden made a mistake in the name of one of the defenders of the Capitol, but he himself corrected the president.
“I’m glad you know your name,” the politician thanked and jokingly allowed the employee to call himself “President Biden.”
The day before, the American leader once again named Vice President Kamala Harris as president. He made a similar mistake last October when he wished Harris a happy birthday.
Earlier, on January 4, Joe Biden puzzled compatriots by comparing the world to a patch on jeans.
On January 1, columnist Jordan Boyd noted in an article for Federalist that the American president is not in good physical and cognitive condition, which threatens the national security of the state.
The 80-year-old Biden is the oldest president in US history, and his health regularly becomes a matter of discussion and concern among Americans. In addition, the politician repeatedly confused the names of countries and stumbled when boarding a plane.
