Biden mistakenly references Libya instead of Syria three times in a few minutes

President Joe Biden’s performance on the world stage during his recent trip to Europe has only served to heighten concerns regarding his mental state and cognitive abilities.

During a Sunday press conference, a “visibly confused” and “tired” Biden mistakenly referred to “Libya” instead of “Syria” three times within the span of about 90 seconds, The Daily Caller reported.

Choreographed press conference

Following the conclusion of the G7 summit in Cornwall, United Kingdom, Biden held a press conference in which he admittedly took only a handful of questions from a list of pre-selected reporters, even remarking a few times that he needed to be careful not to stray from the choreography of the event that had been arranged by his staffers.

The last of those pre-selected reporters was NBC News’ Peter Alexander, who referenced Biden’s upcoming summit on Wednesday with Russian President Vladimir Putin and asked how Biden hoped to curb the “malign activities” of the Russian president.

Biden initially seemed to imply that there was little that he could do to change Putin’s behavior and that Russia had its own problems to deal with, prior to moving on to discuss areas where the two rival nations “can work together” — a remark that had been characterized as near-treason by the press when uttered by former President Donald Trump in recent years.

Biden’s confusion

In discussing those areas where the U.S. and Russia could “work together,” Biden said, “For example, in Libya, we should be opening up the passes to be able to go through and provide — provide food assistance and economic — I mean, vital assistance to a population that’s in real trouble.”

“I think I’m going to try very much — hard to — it is — and, by the way, there’s places where — I shouldn’t be starting off on negotiating in public here,” he continued. “But let me say it this way: Russia has engaged in activities which are — we believe are contrary to international norms, but they have also bitten off some real problems they’re going to have trouble chewing on.”

“And, for example, the rebuilding of — of Syria, of Libya, of — you know, this is — they’re there,” Biden said, referencing Russia’s military intervention in Syria. “And as long as they’re there without the ability to bring about some order in the — in the region, and you can’t do that very well without providing for the basic economic needs of people.”

“So I’m hopeful that we can find an accommodation that — where we can save the lives of people in — for example, in — in Libya, that — consistent with the interest of — maybe for different reasons — but reached it for the same reason — the same result,” the president added.

Gaffe dismissed by aides

Biden’s thrice-mistaken reference of Libya came just days before he is scheduled to hold a one-on-one meeting with Putin in Geneva, Switzerland on Wednesday, the Washington Examiner reported.

Biden’s obvious gaffe was heavily criticized on social media over the course of Sunday and Monday, but according to Fox News, the president’s aides simply dismissed the three times he mistakenly referenced Libya, as everyone knew he meant to say Syria.
