Biden Makes Stunning Mexico-Egypt Gaffe in WH Presser

February 09, 2024

Hours after the release of a Special Counsel report which took repeated shots at his cognitive function, President Joe Biden made a gaffe which seems certain to exacerbate the public’s concerns. In a stunning moment during an impromptu White House news conference late Thursday, the president made a shocking gaffe by confusing Mexico with Egypt. The jawdropping error happened when Biden fielded a reporter’s question about Israel and Hamas. “As you know, initially, the president of Mexico, al-Sisi did not want to open up the gate to allow humanitarian material to get in,” Biden said. I convinced him to open the gate.”The president was trying to refer to the leader of Egypt, Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.
