Biden Proud To Be “First Black Woman Vice President”

Joe Biden has once again found himself in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. During an interview on Thursday, the Commander-in-Chief made yet another headline-grabbing blunder, describing himself as the “first black woman to serve with a black president.” Biden’s verbal slip occurred during an Independence Day media blitz as he attempted to reassure voters following a disastrous debate performance.

Sitting down with host Andrea Lawful-Sanders, who probably did a double-take as Biden issued his peculiar proclamation, the president appeared to confuse his roles and identities in a sentence that twisted itself into knots. “By the way, I’m proud to be, as I said, the first vice president, first black woman, to serve with a black president,” he stated.

It seems Biden was trying to highlight his historic picks, such as Kamala Harris, the first Black woman vice president, and Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman appointed to the Supreme Court. Yet, in classic Biden fashion, his message got entangled in a web of words more complex than a political thriller plot.

This gaffe isn’t Biden’s first tango with the foot-in-mouth syndrome. Who could forget his recent “I was the first president that got elected statewide in the state of Delaware, when I was a kid”? It’s a statement as baffling as it is confusing, considering Biden never served as Delaware’s governor and certainly wasn’t elected as president during his youth.

The timing of Biden’s latest blunder couldn’t be worse. Coming off a rough debate performance, where he looked less like a seasoned statesman and more like a deer caught in the headlights, the gaffe only intensified concerns about his age and cognitive sharpness. Critics have seized on these moments, casting doubt on whether Biden is fit to lead.

Adding fuel to the fire, Biden’s campaign spokesperson, Ammar Moussa, quickly dismissed the media frenzy, arguing that the president’s speech pattern is perfectly normal for him and has been throughout his career. “What are we even doing anymore?” Moussa quipped, attempting to downplay an increasingly uneasy narrative around Biden’s suitability for another term.

As the election looms, Biden’s ability to navigate public appearances without such slip-ups will be under intense scrutiny. With opponents ready to pounce on every misstep, the stakes couldn’t be higher. For now, though, his latest gaffe serves as fodder for comedic relief and fodder for late-night talk shows.

So, as Biden continues his campaign trail, one thing is clear: In the unpredictable world of politics, sometimes the biggest headlines come from the smallest slip-ups.
