(RepublicanWire.org) – President Joe Biden announced on Tuesday that “the first lady’s husband contracted COVID” — only to be reminded a few seconds later by someone on the sidelines that he, in fact, was the first lady’s husband.
“Look at the stage,” Biden said, gesturing off to one side. “There’s been a little change in the arrangement of who’s on the stage, because of — the first lady’s husband contracted COVID, but … look at this room and what you’ll see …”
Someone off to the side caught Biden’s attention then, and he stepped back slightly from the microphone to hear them.
“Pardon me?” he said, and laughter erupted in the room, only getting louder as Biden clearly realized what he had said and added, “That’s right. She’s fine. It’s me … The second lady — the first gentleman — how about that?”
Biden had apparently been trying to announce that second gentleman Doug Emhoff, husband to Vice President Kamala Harris, had tested positive for COVID-19.
