Angry at this, President Biden said that his memory is absolutely correct. He said that I do not remember when my son died. How did anyone dare to say this?
Biden further said, ‘I don’t need to tell anyone when my son died. I have not broken any laws in handling confidential documents. I am an old man and I know what I am doing. I am the President. I have put this country on its feet again.
According to the report, Biden appeared confused on many issues in front of Robert Hur on October 8 and October 9. He “did not remember when he was Vice President. He forgot the first day of the interview and when his term ended.

Biden said, “I was just sitting down and I said, ‘America is back’ and Mitterrand from Germany, I mean from France, looked at me and said – ‘You know what – why – how long you’re back. Have you come?'”
Biden was referring to the discussion among NATO leaders at the G7 meeting regarding the violence that took place on Capitol Hill on January 6, 2021. In the official transcript of the speech, the White House has admitted Biden’s mistake. According to this, Biden had called Mitterrand. However, he had to mention Macron, the French President since 2017.
Fourth story – Forgot the name of Hamas, then said – opposition movement, later apologized
According to the report of Independent, Biden was giving a speech on February 6 regarding the Israel-Hamas war. During this time the name of the terrorist group Hamas was forgotten. After thinking for some time, he started calling Hamas an ‘opposition movement’. Biden said that there has been some reaction from the opposition. After this the journalists reminded him that he was talking about Hamas. After this, Biden apologized and said, “Yes, I am sorry… there has been some reaction from Hamas.”
Some more stories- Donald Trump as sitting president, New Zealand’s All Black rugby team as Black and Tans
Last week, in another such incident, Joe Biden had called his rival Donald Trump a ‘sitting president’. In April last year, Biden confused New Zealand’s All Black rugby team with the Black and Tans.
