Jill Biden Steps In To Correct Joe Biden After He Called Kamala Harris The ‘First Lady

Sharing is caring!

First Lady Jill Biden had to step in and clean up another embarrassing flub from president Joe Biden when Joe called Kamala Harris, his Vice President, the First Lady yesterday.

Biden somehow confused the two women during a speech at a Women’s History Month celebration at the White House. Vice President Kamala Harris’ husband, Doug Emhoff, tested positive for the virus earlier causing Kamala to drop out of the event because they don’t want Biden, who is 78, catching COVID.

So Biden, never good when not reading from a script, flubbed the announcement about who would be at the event. “There’s been a little change in the arrangement of who’s on the stage because of the first lady’s husband contracting COVID,” Biden said.

To be perfectly clear, the first lady’s husband is actually Joe Biden.

After Biden flubbed it, Jill Biden interrupted Joe to point out his mistake.

“Pardon?” Biden said oblivious.

“You said the first — anyways,” Jill said before giving up as the crowd started laughing.

“That’s right. She’s fine. It’s me that’s not together,” Biden said trying not to look confused.

“The Second La- — the First Gentleman,” he said finally getting it right as the crowd laughed politely but probably terrified again. “How about that?”

Biden continued: “One person I’m particularly proud of is — was going to be introducing me — is Kamala Harris.

“He’s fine, but out of an abundance of caution, she decided she wasn’t going to join us today.

“But let’s send her our love because she’s something else.”

From Fox News:

Biden began his remarks by introducing himself as the first lady’s husband.

“I’m Joe Biden. I’m Jill Biden’s husband and proud of it,” he said.

Biden’s remarks focused on the progress of women and called for equal pay, touting his administration’s efforts to close the “pay gap.” 

The president signed an executive order Tuesday to promote efforts to achieve pay equality, encouraging the government to consider banning federal contractors from seeking information about job applicants’ prior salary history.
