Biden Forgets Congresswoman Died in Latest Gaffe

2008: Dow Jones Industrial Average falls 777.68 points, its largest single-day point loss, following the bankruptcies of Lehman Brothers and Washington Mutual.

President Joe Biden asked if Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN) was at an event on Wednesday, apparently forgetting that the congresswoman was killed in a car accident in August.

Biden, 79, made the macabre mistake during a speech at the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health. Walorski co-chaired the House Hunger Caucus alongside Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA). The pair had co-sponsored legislation with Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Sen. Mike Braun (D-IN) to put on Wednesday’s conference.

During his remarks, Biden recognized the lawmakers who helped make the event happen — including the late Walorski.

“I want to thank all of you here, including bipartisan elected officials like Rep. McGovern, Sen. Braun, Sen. Booker, Rep. … Jackie, are you here? Where’s Jackie?” Biden said, referring to Walorski.

Walorski and staffers Emma Thomson and Zachary Potts died in a car accident on August 3. Biden issued a statement at the time, mourning the congresswoman’s death and extending condolences to her family.

Donald Trump Jr. tweeted: “I guess Biden forgot he issued this statement unless he didn’t actually issue this statement!?!”

The grim gaffe renewed questions about Biden’s mental fitness.

“This man is not mentally fit to serve as President of the United States,” the conservative group Tea Party Patriots tweeted.

  3. Don says:

    All I can think of is that it’s too bad his mother didn’t get an abortion.

  4. Hellmas says:

    Perhaps he was just attempting to invoke Walorski’s spirit. Or perhaps Biden’s handlers wrote his script before the accident and forgot to update it. And of course we couldn’t expect Biden to remember that far back. He can’t remember what flavor ice cream he had yesterday.

  5. Joe says:

    What a pathetic,sick,arrogant, human being,he isn’t fit to serve, or lead.

    1. Anna says:

      We the people should demand a cognitive test. Biden is supposed to be the leader of the free world so he should be aware of this. And we the people should be scared shitless that this is the case. And they were afraid Trump was going to press the nuclear button!!! God help us!!!!
