Biden confuses job title, says he’s first senator from Delaware

President Biden mixed up his job title Monday, telling a crowd in the White House that he was the nation’s first senator from Delaware when he meant to say president.

Biden, who turns 80 this year, is the oldest U.S. president ever, and Republican critics routinely accuse him of being in a state of mental decline, citing gaffes and instances where he seems to lose his train of thought .

“There weren’t many senators from Delaware. It’s a small state. In fact, there has never been one. And so I want to take advantage of making sure I introduce myself [a fellow Delaware native]’ Biden said at a White House event to mark the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

The president, who was born in Pennsylvania before moving to Delaware as a child, represented the state as a senator for 36 years before serving as vice president for eight years.

Biden made the faux pas when he pointed to Madinah Wilson-Anton, a Muslim-American clerk at the Biden Institute at the University of Delaware who holds his Senate files.

Biden has also confused his vice president’s job title, referring to “President” Kamala Harris at least four times — most recently in January.

Biden’s defense attorneys note that he has long had a tendency to stumble, even before he reaches old age, and point out that former President Donald Trump, 75, also stumbles occasionally.

Trump, who is teasing a 2024 rematch against Biden, on Sunday mixed up the name of the Ohio Republican Senate nominee he supports and spelled his pick, JD Vance, as “JP, right? JD Mandel” – a combination of Vance’s first name and rival contestant Josh Mandel’s last name.
