TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO……
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Tuesday made a pair of Election Day gaffes during a rare in-person campaign stop in Philadelphia, saying his late son Beau Biden was a senator and mixing up his granddaughters’ names.
Just hours before potentially becoming the nation’s oldest-ever president-elect, Biden spoke about his family to a crowd of supporters in swing state Pennsylvania’s largest city.
“This is my son, Beau Biden, who a lot of you helped elect to the Senate in Delaware, this is my granddaughter Natalie — no wait, I’ve got the wrong one. This is Natalie, this is Beau’s daughter,” Biden said as he introduced his granddaughters.
The former vice president initially identified his 20-year-old granddaughter Finnegan Biden whose father is Hunter Biden, as the 16-year-old Natalie. Last month, Biden appeared to forget Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney’s name and said, “I’m running as a proud Democrat for the Senate.”
