President Joe Biden last week forgot the name of another world leader. During a virtual event with Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia and his U.K. counterpart Boris Johnson, the president addressed the British prime minister by name before he referred to Morrison as “that fellow down under.”
It’s hardly the first time Biden has flubbed a prominent official’s name. In fact, since he launched his presidential campaign in 2019, the former vice president has consistently struggled to speak words in a coherent fashion and has often failed to convince observers that he understands where he is and what is happening at any given moment.
Biden will turn 79 in November.
