During an interview with NBC 5 DFW on Monday, Oct. 26, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden mistakenly called Sen. Kamala Harris’s husband “Kamala’s wife.”
Biden made the blunder while he was responding to a question about his campaign’s effort in the state during the final week of campaigning, reported The Sun.
“Well, we put a major effort into Texas, to begin with—eight days to go, uh, and, uh—the Lone Star State has a shot of becoming blue again,” Biden said. “You know, uh, we have 17 battleground states across the country, and we’re not losing focus on securing, uh, uh, the many pathways to 270.”
“But my wife Jill, as you know, and Doug Emhoff, uh, Kamala’s wife, are there,” Biden continued.

GOP War Room shared the video on its official YouTube channel, which drew the attention of many social media users.
“This is beyond sad now,” an user wrote. “If the American people vote this guy president, they will forever be labeled the country of dum-dums.”
“The saddest part of it all is that Biden voters do not have full confidence in Biden,” another said. “It’s simply a vote against Trump.”
While a person mocked, “If Joe wins, Kamala and her wife will be President!”
Biden’s comments came just one day after he appeared to refer to President Donald Trump as George Bush, drawing criticism from the president.
“Did you see yesterday when he called me George? No, I don’t know if I like George. Not George. What a mess. What a mess. No, he called me George,” President Trump told his supporters at a campaign rally in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
“I don’t know if I should be insulted or happy about it. Sort of insulted. That’s the first time that’s happened to me in a long time,” he said.
Harris, Biden’s running mate, also made headlines earlier this week after being caught on a hot mic at a rally.
“Are we in Cleveland?” she asked an aide before yelling to supporters, “Hey, Cleveland, it’s Kamala!”
During the Cleveland visit, Harris also overstated the U.S. death toll of the CCP Virus (coronavirus) pandemic, saying it had killed “over 220 million” Americans while the actual number is around 224,000—Biden similarly made false statements in June and September.
