Biden raises eyebrows with grammatical error during post-debate interview

 July 7, 2024

President Joe Biden's shockingly bad performance in his debate against former President Donald Trump has left many Americans unsure about his cognitive health.

In an attempt to calm those worries, Biden called upon ABC News host and former Clinton White House staffer George Stephanopoulos for an interview. Yet the move ended up creating more fodder for critics.

Biden talks of doing "the goodest job" he can

As Breitbart noted, Stephanopoulos at one point remarked that he has "never seen a president" who managed to achieve reelection despite having a 36% approval rating.

While Biden responded by disputing that this represented his actual approval number, Stephanopoulos pressed on about the prospect of him losing.

"And if you stay in and Trump is elected and everything you’re warning about comes to pass, how will you feel in January?" the host asked.

The president replied by saying, "I'll feel as long as I gave it my all and I did the goodest job as I know I can do, that's what this is about."

Biden appeared not to notice his mistake

"Look, George. Think of it this way. You’ve heard me say this before. I think the United States and the world is at an inflection point when the things that happen in the next several years are gonna determine what the next six, seven decades are gonna be like," Biden added.

Breitbart noted that Biden's use of the grammatically incorrect term "goodest" in place of "best" appears to have been a genuine mistake rather than an attempt at ironic humor.

The president's choice of words did not go unnoticed by his detractors, some of whom took to social media and highlighted the error.

Democratic donors growing angry

They included New York Republican Rep. Claudia Tenney, who wrote in a post on X, "The more you watch it, the worse it gets. This has to be calculated to get him out."

New Mexico state Republican Rep. John Block spoke up as well. Block jokingly asked, "Is this the 'goodest' Biden interview or what?"

Biden's gaffe will likely stoke anger felt by major Democratic donors such as Hollywood mogul Ari Emanuel, who lashed out at the president while attending the Aspen Institute's Ideas Festival.

"Here's what Biden did: He said he was gonna run for one term, and he's doing it to restore democracy. He now runs for a second term," Fox News quoted Emaunel as complaining one day following the debate.
