Trump mocks Joe Biden after embarrassing 'George' blunder – ‘Couldn’t remember my name’

US President Donald Trump took to Twitter to address his adversary’s mistake after he seemed to forget the President’s name. Mr Biden was speaking at a virtual concert when he apparently called Mr Trump by the name of “George”.

He said: “Four more years of George, er, George, er, he - we're going to find ourselves in a position where, if Trump gets elected, we're going to be in a different world.”

Mr Biden’s wife, Jill, who was sitting next to him at the time of the address, appeared to try to correct him, whispering “Trump” under her breath.

Tweeting from his controversial Twitter account, President Trump mocked his opponent, claiming he “could not remember my name”.

Mr Trump wrote: “Joe Biden called me George yesterday. Couldn’t remember my name.

“Got some help from the anchor to get him through the interview.

“The Fake News Cartel is working overtime to cover it up!”

Some claimed Mr Biden was referring to George Lopez, one of the hosts of the rally for Latino voters, and whose question he was answering.

Others said Mr Biden could have been thinking of former US president George W Bush or George H W who was president from 1989-93.

Mr Biden’s apparent mix up was picked up on by Republicans who questioned his mental abilities and whether he would be well suited for the top job.

Governor Mike Huckabee tweeted: “Biden thinks he's running against George....Washington.

“He knew George back then. No wonder they ‘call a lid’ every day at 9am.”

Donald Trump Jr added: “It’s getting beyond ridiculous. This guy is not up for the job.

“The left is using him to get in their radicals.

“Did Biden think he was running against George Bush or George Washington?”

He said: “Hey, the same guy who thought that the 911 attack was a 7-Eleven attack? He's talking about dementia?

“All I can say to the American people is watch me, is see what I've done, is see what I'm going to do.

“Look at me. Compare our physical and mental acuity. I’m happy to have that comparison.”

He added: “The way he's handling COVID is just absolutely totally irresponsible.

“He's telling people that we've turned the bend, in one of his recent rallies.

“Well, he's gone - as my grandpop would say - he's gone round the bend. I mean, we are in real trouble.”
