President Biden had a year full of mistakes and didn’t show any signs of doing better in2023 when he started the third year of his term.
In October, Biden said, “Let me start off with two words: Made in America.” Throughout the year, the president made mistakes, including confusion, mispronunciations, and factual errors. This included calling Kamala Harris the president, falling off his bike in Delaware, and trying to shake hands with nothing but air.
In the coming year, Biden, who is already the oldest president in history, is predicted to abandon his reelection bid.
When asked in October if he would seek reelection, Biden responded, “Dr. Biden thinks that uh, my wife thinks that uh, that I uh, that, that we’re, that we’re doing something very important.” Biden is still in good physical shape at the age of 80. But he misspoke about having cancer in July. When discussing the oil industry, Biden said, “That’s why I and so damn many other people I grew up with have cancer and why for a long time Delaware had the highest cancer rate in the nation.”
After giving three speeches this year, Biden had trouble getting off the stage. He once left a Toys for Tots event in December, being led off by a young girl. When talking about Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, Biden had trouble pronouncing the word “kleptocracy.”
“We’re going to seize their yachts, their mansions, and other ill-gotten gains of Putin’s kleptocracy and kep—the guys who are the kleptocracies,” the statement read. On his final day of campaigning, Biden attended an event for Wes Moore, who went onto win the Maryland governorship by a margin of about 30%.
There, Biden had trouble recalling the name of the candidate he had come to support. “Naturally, you also have the following governor. Who is he called? Wes… Wes…Turning to audience members holding Wes Moore signs, Biden said, “Wes Moore.”
The most tragic blunder by the president occurred in September when he scanned the audience and asked about the whereabouts of late Rep. Jackie Walorski, R-Ind., several weeks after her death in a car accident.
