President Biden failed to read his notes as he botched the number of vaccinated Americans twice during a speech on Friday.
After staring at his notes, President Biden said, “You know, we have roughly 350 million people vaccinated in the United States and billions around the world.”
Not only does that number exceed the total U.S. population, but it also doubles the actual number of Americans who have been vaccinated.
What’s worse is Biden knew his figures were wrong. Biden continued after his initial gaffe saying, “What is the number again? I have to remind myself. … 350 million Americans have already been vaccinated.”
One thing we know for sure, it is likely that an unfortunate aide at the White House got fired following Biden’s speech.
If President Biden hopes to convince Americans that he has it together, he is doing a terrible job. The decline in his mental capabilities is beginning to affect his reading skills.
