The media will just call it another “Biden gaffe.” During a press conference, President Biden seemed to forget to mention the tragic partial building collapse in Miami, FL which has left more than 140 Americans unaccounted for in the massive collection of debris and rubble.
The Daily Wire reports:
“So, again, if it turns out that what I’ve done so far — what we’ve done so far is a mistake, it’s going to show,” Biden said toward the end of his press conference on Thursday afternoon. “It’s going to show. The economy is not going to grow, like it wasn’t before. People aren’t going to have jobs with increased pay, like it was before. People are going to be out of work, like it was before, with no options. Unemployment is going to continue to climb, instead of continue to go down. If that happens, then my policies didn’t make a lot of sense, but I’m counting on it not. That’s my counting how it’s working.”
“I’ve got to get a helicopter [inaudible],” Biden concluded. “Thank you.”
At that moment, Harris is seen approaching Biden before he leaves the podium and telling him something — at one point, it appears as though she says the word “Florida.”
As Harris made the remarks to Biden, reporters shouted, “Mr. President, will you travel to Florida, sir?” and “Can we ask you about Florida — what you’ve learned and what you’ve [inaudible]?”
Only after Harris approached Biden did he then mention the tragic collapse. Biden said he’s reached out to Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and FEMA about the disaster. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has also issued an emergency order.
This is only Biden’s latest forgetful moment in a string of blunders that has caused Republicans to ask him to immediately submit to a cognitive exam.
