Chalk up another moment of confusion for Grandpa Disaster, Joe Biden.
Biden was at the White House for a bill signing event to which he’d invited some Democrats including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Rep. Chuy Gracia (D-IL).
While there, a hot mic picked up what Biden was saying, and talk about embarrassing. How long has he known Maxine Waters? Decades? It was a financial-services-related bill, so it’s under the Financial Services Committee of which she is the chair.
But Biden called her by the wrong name, calling her Maxine “Walters” and slurring the title of the bill. Then when he saw Waters, he said “Senator, I hope. You think I’m kidding. I’m not.” Waters is 82 years old, isn’t running for Senator, and isn’t leaving her seat in the House anytime soon (unfortunately). So what was he talking about? Some thought he confused Waters with Rep. Val Demings (D-FL) who is black and who is running for a Senate seat in Florida. Yikes.
Did Joe Biden confuse Maxine Waters with Val Demings yesterday?

You can see both Pelosi and Waters are like ‘what the heck?’ Waters even shrugs her shoulders. Pelosi tries to clean it up, saying Waters has more important things to do.
Excuse me ..Say what …
Embarrassing..maybe she will become a US senator

I’m with RNC Research on this one. I think Biden confused her with Val Demings. That’s bad enough and it says something about where he’s at mentally that he’s not able to distinguish the two women. It might be even worse if he actually really thought that mad Maxine Waters would make a good senator. The Biden team has been trying to convince people of the lie that Democrats really aren’t the ones going after the police and calling to defund them. Waters of course was another prominent Democratic voice who has constantly attacked the police. She even went to Brooklyn Center, Minnesota and hyped up BLM protesters to be more “confrontational” if they didn’t get the verdict they waned in the Chauvin case. So if Biden is endorsing her for the Senate, he’s also endorsing that radical anti-police attitude.
“Hey, by the way, keep it up,” Biden also whispered to Pelosi before the mic cut out. It’s not clear what he was encouraging her to keep up. The general insanity that she sows?
