During a speech to commemorate the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial’s 10th anniversary, Vice President Kamala Harris corrected President Joe Biden at least twice on the price tag of his American Rescue Plan, passed in March as a stimulus because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Yahoo News reports.
“Our work continues to create safer and stronger communities in critical ways,” Biden said Thursday. “With my American Rescue Plan — and thank you in Congress for supporting it — everybody kind of forgets that was $1.9 billion — trillion dollars. We got a hell of a — heck of a lot done with that.”
After quickly correcting himself, he went on to repeat the same gaffe.
“And it did so well, people don’t even know where it came from,” Biden continued, eliciting laughter from the crowd. “I’m serious! Think about it. Like, ‘What did you do for me lately?’ Well, we had $1.9 billion we took care of.”
After his second mistake, Harris and several audience members shouted “Trillion!” to correct the president.
Biden has been a continual gaffe machine since the earliest days of the campaign, but it may be that Harris has finally grown impatient with dealing with his doddering and mistakes.
To shout during a presidential speech shows a lack of respect that few presidents have seen happen to them since the beginning of the U.S. as a republic.
If this incident suggests anything, it’s that Harris has cut ties with the idea she should blindly back everything Biden says, since it is clear to many that he’s no longer in his right mind.
Now what happens?
It’s a scary time in America when everything the president touches seems to crumble, and people feel no compunction in shouting “F*** Joe Biden!” in crowded sports stadiums.
While it may seem affirming to see the American people finding out that Biden’s policies are making the country worse, it seems that each successive American president is less respected, even by his own colleagues at times, like in the case of VP Harris.
It seems doubtful that Biden will recover his alertness as he continues to age and to experience what many, including physicians, see as advancing dementia or similar diseases that cause cognitive decline.
The Biden-Harris administration continues to be a disaster for America, and it’ll likely become much worse before it gets better.
