President Biden commits the trifecta of his gaffes while speaking at Ebenezer Baptist Church to speak during a service honoring Dr. Martin Luther King.
Let’s give some context to this embarrassing event. Biden chose to speak at this historic church because it is that parish MLK used to pastor. But it is being pastored now by Sen. Raphael Warnock, the man who is in the midst of a scandal that surfaced during his campaign.
The president gave some remarks honoring MLK, but he couldn’t speak without lying to the congregation. His first gaffe was to once again talk about being involved in the civil rights movement.
“When I started off as a 22-year-old kid on the east side in the civil rights movement,” Biden said. But this is a widely debunked lie that he just keeps telling. When he was first caught in this lie in 1987, he finally admitted back then, “I was not an activist…I was not out marching. I was not down in Selma. I was not anywhere else.”
The president’s second gaffe came when he talked about his attendance in a “black church” after going to Catholic mass in the morning.
“I used to go to 7:30 mass every morning in high school and then in college, before I went to the Black church. Not a joke.”
But Congregants in the church say they can’t remember Biden ever attending.
Biden’s third gaffe, the complete trifecta, came when he couldn’t manage to pronounce his appointment to the Supreme Court. He called Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, Kejanji – Ketanji Drown Jackson.
That would certainly be enough to be embarrassed, but let’s throw in one more “creepy Joe” gaffe for good measure.
President Biden caught the eye of a young girl in the congregation and said, “What’s your name, honey? It’s good to see you. Maybe I can have a picture with you before I leave, ok? Is that all right?”
You can’t make this stuff up.
