President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris both made confusing comments during speeches Wednesday, but it was Biden’s that forced a correction from the White House.
While giving remarks at an event to commemorate Women’s History Month, Biden made a major slip-up while touting his work in the Violence Against Women Act.
He stated, “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.”
The White House’s transcript of his comments later corrected the phrase “domestic political advisors” to “[convicted domestic abusers].”
This gaffe comes as Biden has a well-documented history of awkward anecdotes and verbal missteps, with critics pointing out his frequent blunders in speeches.
