Biden Stumbles Hard During Interview
(USNewsMag.com) – President Joe Biden has a history of making gaffes. In fact, in 2008, the media claimed he and former president Barack Obama’s campaign often kept him in the dark about conference calls, in part, due to those verbal mistakes. More than a decade later, the Democrat still has trouble speaking.
Biden sat down with CNN’s Jake Tapper for a wide-ranging interview on October 11, where he made a number of mistakes that confused viewers. During a conversation about his legislative victories, he called the Inflation Reduction Act, the “Inflation Act.” He talked about problems the country is still facing and admitted there are some, but stammered over his response, saying, “…look, look, look, look, look what we got done.”
The president also bragged about passing a bill that will lead to “a billion a trillion 750 million dollars billion dollars” in investments.

While trying to answer a question about a recession, Biden had a difficult time getting his answer out, saying, “It hadn’t — but — there — that had — there is no, there’s no…”
Republicans have questioned whether or not Biden is apt to remain in office because of his constant mistakes. For example, during the 2020 campaign, he mistook his sister for his wife. As president, he has made many more gaffes.
Democrats, on the other hand, point out that the POTUS had a stutter in his youth and has had to actively work on his speech throughout his life, as many people with the disorder do. A look at his history in public office (like the 2008 campaign and time as vice president) shows he has long struggled with different types of gaffes that may either be attributed to his speech impediment or may be a matter of “embellishing” the truth as the New York Times recently pointed out.
What do you think about the president’s stammering speeches and interviews?
