White House Corrects Biden’s Gaffe; President Claimed Law Helps Keep Guns away from ‘Domestic Political Advisors’

President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris both made head-scratching gaffes during speeches on Wednesday. However, Biden’s error forced a correction to be issued by the White House. 

At an event commemorating Women’s History Month, the president accompanied first lady Jill Biden, second gentleman Doug Emhoff, and Vice President Harris. While President Biden was touting his work on the Violence Against Women Act, he made a crucial slip-up. 

“You know, but this builds on other steps you’ve taken, and we’ve taken, like the most significant gun safety law in 30 years, to help keep guns out of the hands of domestic political advisors,” said Biden, adding emphasis. 

The transcript of his comments issued by the White House crossed out “domestic political advisors” and wrote in what Biden was supposed to have said, “[convicted domestic abusers.].”

Earlier in the speech, the president made another curious comment. He said of the first lady, “Jill has — puts messages on my mirror, where I’m shaving, so I make sure I see them. And one that was put in about a year ago was, ‘Stop trying to make me love you.'”

The president has a history that is well-documented of awkward anecdotes and gaffes. In February, he touted during a speech at the White House that “more than half the women” on his team “are women.”

Earlier in March, during a speech that focused on health care policy, the president told a story about a nurse, saying, “She’d come in and do things I don’t think you learn in nursing school. She’d whisper in my ear, I couldn’t understand, but she’d whisper, and she’d lean down and actually breathe on me to make sure there was a human connection.”

During the same Women’s History Month event, V.P. Harris also gave a speech with a curious soundbite. 

“So, during Women’s History Month, we celebrate, and we honor the women who made history throughout history, who saw what could be unburdened by what had been,” said Harris to the crowd. 

Harris’ repetitive and circular rhetoric has frequently been called “word salads” by critics. 

Vice President Harris has been frequently mocked by “The Daily Show’s” Twitter account, which made a biting video that drew parallels between the VP and the kooky main character Selina Meyers, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, on HBO’s “Veep.”

Gaffes continued for Biden on Thursday

On Thursday, during an East Room of the White House event that celebrated the 13th anniversary of the ObamaCare health reform law, President Biden declared he likes “babies better than people.” 

The 80-year-old president drew a sharp line between personhood and babyhood  and said, “It’s OK, it’s all right,” as an infant cried during his speech, then added, “In fact, I like babies better than people.” He then held the infant, who was reportedly the noise source.
