President Joe Biden has a long history of miscues, gaffes, and general mistakes during public appearances.
Democrat leaders dismiss these errors as trivial, and claim they don’t indicate any signs of cognitive decline. Their Republican counterparts claim otherwise.
And when POTUS forgets the name of the birthday girl, Biden critics just get more ammunition.
The 80-year-old Commander-in-Chief was addressing the National Action Network (run by Al Sharpton, MLK III, and his wife).
And at one point, Biden decided to sing “Happy Birthday” to Martin Luther King Jr.’s daughter-in-law, which should’ve been a simple thing.
However, when the President tried it, he seemed to forget the name of the birthday girl.

When it came to saying the name, nobody could hear what Biden said, which led people to believe that he’d simply forgotten.
This was the same event at which Biden called Republicans “fiscally demented,” which came after the GOP pulled extra funding for the IRS.
The President also saw fit to go after the Second Amendment and gun owners, demanding limitations on the number of rounds of ammunition in magazines:
Ban the number of bullets that go in a magazine. There’s no, no need for any of that. I love my right-wing friends who talk about ‘the tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots.’
If you need to worry about taking on the federal government, you need some F-15s. You don’t need any AR-15. I’m serious. Think about it.
Critics immediately fired back, saying the statement was purely anti-2A, and the extra bullets in a magazine doesn’t lead to any rise in crime.
At the same time, these critics will point to certain Democrat-run cities with very strict gun laws, which have some of the highest levels of gun violence in the country.
At any rate, Biden seemingly forgetting the name of the person he’s singing Happy Birthday to — it doesn’t give American citizens a lot of confidence moving forward.
And this could be the biggest hurdle for Biden’s re-election campaign come 2024.
- President Joe Biden appeared to forget the name of the person to whom he was singing “Happy Birthday.”
- This seemed to be another example of Biden’s perceived cognitive decline.
- Biden also took the chance to go after gun owners and 2A.
