79-year-old Joe Biden, during an event at the White House on Tuesday, said that “the first lady’s husband contracted COVID”, but was instantly told a few moments later by someone on the side that he is the first lady’s husband.

“Look at the stage,” Biden said. “There’s been a little change in the arrangement of who’s on the stage, because of– the first lady’s husband contracted COVID, but uh, look at this room and what you’ll see.”

Biden ultimately realized what he had said, then added, “That’s right. She’s fine. It’s me … The second lady — the first gentleman — how about that?”

Biden was apparently trying to announce that second gentleman Doug Emhoff, husband to Kamala Harris, had tested positive for COVID-19.

“Earlier today, the Second Gentleman tested positive for Covid-19,” said Sabrina Singh, deputy press secretary for Vice President Kamala Harris. “Out of an abundance of caution, the Vice President will not participate in tonight’s event. The Vice President tested negative for Covid-19 today and will continue to test.” Emhoff’s positive test is the first known case of Covid-19 among the first or second families since President Joe Biden and Harris took office in January 2021, CNN reported.

“I tested positive for COVID. My symptoms are mild and I’m grateful to be both vaccinated and boosted,” Emhoff said on Twitter Tuesday night. “If you have yet to get vaccinated and boosted, please don’t wait.” Continued Below

Biden also struggled when he announced Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, appearing to forget which state Granholm had served as governor.

Granholm, who was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, served as Governor of Michigan from 2003-2011 and as Michigan’s first female Attorney General from 1999-2003, Daily Wire noted.
