President Joe Biden made another speech and another gaffe on Tuesday. While campaigning in Florida and promoting the Inflation Reduction Act, he made many claims and missteps that the internet started to quickly criticize him on.
One of those wrong claims included mistaking how and where his son died. He also referred to Florida Representative Debbie Wasserman-Schultz as “Senator,” and even claimed that he had communicated with those who had invented insulin. All of these claims were quickly judged and corrected by conservative commentators.
Others have also criticized him for using world salads similar to those of former President Donald Trump during his explanation of inflation. He also claimed that the U.S. inflation was currently among the “lowest in the world” which is completely untrue based on the data from the World Economic Forum.
He also mistakenly spoke about the “war in Iraq” instead of the war in Ukraine. He also said that his mind went to Iraq because that had been where his son had died.
Biden’s son, Beau, had indeed served in Iraq but that is not where he died. Six years after his deployment ended Beau died of brain cancer.
Another minor gaffe occurred when he spoke about Hurricane Ivan, a 2004 storm, instead of Hurricane Ian.
However, the claim that he spoke to insulin inventors is possible, however, James Collip and Charles Best had initially sold their patent for $1 to the University of Toronto so that everyone could have access to it.
Collip died in 1948, while Best died in 1978. This was only five years after Biden first got elected to the U.S. Senate.
Joe Biden keeps saying his son died in Iraq. His son died six years after he returned from Iraq. This is not a small lie. And he keeps repeating it: pic.twitter.com/Kpx3xUrsMV
