After delivering a speech on the availability of coronavirus vaccines for America’s youth, Joe Biden appeared to forget House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s name.
Biden was referencing a meeting he recently had with Rep. McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in regards to the proposed infrastructure package.
“I’m encouraged not just because of the solid meeting with uh…with uh…the uh… the Republican leader of the House,” Biden said in reference to McCarthy.

The latest apparent flub comes in wake of an open letter that was signed by over 120 retired generals and admirals that questions Biden’s mental health and the overall integrity of America’s election system.
“The mental and physical condition of the Commander in Chief cannot be ignored. He must be able to quickly make accurate national security decisions involving life and limb anywhere, day or night,” the former military officers wrote.
“The FBI and Supreme Court must act swiftly when election irregularities are surfaced and not ignore them as was done in 2020,’ they also wrote.
“Election integrity demands insuring there is one legal vote cast and counted per citizen. Legal votes are identified by State Legislature’s approved controls using government IDs, verified signatures, etc,” they added.
