Confused Biden Refers to Doug Emhoff as ‘Kamala’s Wife’

October 27, 2020

In a TV interview in Texas on Monday, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden had another “confused Biden” moment when he referred to his VP pick Kamala Harris’ husband Doug Emhoff as “Kamala’s wife.”

“We have 17 battleground states across the country,” Biden said. “We’re not losing focus on securing, uh, uh, the many pathways to 270 [electoral votes], but my wife, Jill, as you know, and Doug Emhoff, uh, Kamala’s wife, were there. Kamala will be back later this week.”

Biden did not correct himself, and the local NBC station airing the interview did not mention it in its story. Imagine the media attention if President Trump had made such a gaffe.

This is in addition to Biden’s blunder on Sunday, when he seemingly referred to Donald Trump as “George” Bush. Sitting next to Jill Biden and speaking with comedian George Lopez and CNN analyst Ana Navarro, Biden said, “Four more years of George, uh, George, uh, he, uh — gonna find ourselves in a position where, if, uh, Trump gets elected, uh, we’re gonna be, uh, we’re gonna be in a different world.”

His wife reportedly muttered “Trump” under her breath to get Joe to correct himself. A Washington Post “fact check” nonsensically claimed that Biden meant to refer to co-host George Lopez, because the media continue to cover for every Biden gaffe and controversy.
