The old man did it again!… Ukraine instead of Gaza!


Social media circulated a new gaffe by US President Joe Biden, in which he mistakenly mentioned Ukraine several times while talking about US plans to airdrop aid into Gaza.

Biden, alongside Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, said on Friday, “In the coming days, we will join our friends in Jordan and others in airdrops of additional food and supplies to Ukraine, and we will seek to continue opening other routes to Ukraine”.

Later, White House National Security Communications Advisor John Kirby clarified that Biden was referring to the Gaza Strip, not Ukraine.

Ironically, Biden’s latest lapse came during his meeting with Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, who showed signs of surprise on her face during the US President’s talk; with this incident comes shortly after a comedy show on a digital broadcasting service in Italy showed scenes mocking the US President and his repeated blunders.

Biden’s (81) slip on Friday, isn’t his first, as it joins a series of other similar incidents that have become more common.

Last month, Joe Biden gave a speech in which he defended his memory, after it was scrutinized in a special investigator’s report, but then he confused Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al Sisi with the president of Mexico, and became upset after journalists asked whether his memory had worsened as he gets older.

During one of his election campaigns events, in Las Vegas, early last February, the US President also mixed up the French President, Emmanuel Macron, with the former President of France, François Mitterrand, who died in 1996.
