Biden stumbles over his words at White House ‘Pride’ event

Although conservatives have long pointed to President Joe Biden’s habit of making bizarre gaffes and verbal missteps, even some of his supporters on the left were recently forced to take notice.

In an embarrassing move, Biden botched the acronym “LGBTQI+” as he spoke at a White House “Pride” event on Wednesday.  

President mangles gay and transgender acronym

According to Breitbart, the mistake came as the president attempted to tout his administration’s record on gay and transgender issues.

At one point he said “LGBTQL” before stopping to correct himself. The United Nations explains that “LGBTQI+” stands for “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex.” In another mix-up, Biden used the word “liberation” instead of “lesbian.”

During his remarks, he condemned Republican politicians for supporting legislation aimed at protecting children from indoctrination and transgender procedures.

“I don’t have to tell you about the ultra-MAGA agenda attacking families and our freedoms,” the president declared, adding that conservatives are “going after Mickey Mouse for God’s sake.”

That was a reference to how Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed legislation earlier this year revoking Disney’s special tax status under Florida law.

He did so after Disney came out against the “Parental Rights in Education Act,” which prohibits school employees or third parties from giving classroom instruction on “sexual orientation” or “gender identity” in kindergarten through third grade.

President signs executive order promoting transgender surgery for minors

Later in the event, Biden went on to boast of his effort to get “a record number” of gay and transgender appointees placed “at every single level of our government.”

“I think we have more LGBTQ+ people than any administration or every administration combined,” he declared, adding, “Pride is back at the White House.”

Meanwhile, Fox News reported that Biden signed an executive order on Wednesday which calls on the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to ensure minors can receive gender transition surgeries.

What’s more, Fox News reported earlier this month, the administration announced that it will begin withholding funds for school lunches to those institutions which do not allow transgender students to use the bathroom of their choice.
