Biden makes an embarrassing gaffe when he forgets the name of Luther King III's wife at her birthday party

Biden pronounced another name.


US President Joe Biden, 80, made an embarrassing mistake when he forgot the name of Martin Luther King III's wife, when he was singing with a group of singers the song "Happy Birthday" during an event honoring the late civil rights leader.

The birthday of Luther King's wife, Andrea Waters King, on January 16th, is a day honoring Martin Luther King Jr., the father of Martin Luther King III.

Biden attended breakfast in Washington, which is held on this occasion by Rev. Al Sharpton, who runs the “National Action Network” project, which had its beginnings in organizing civil rights during his adolescence, and then became the director of this project that combats poverty.

During his opening remarks, Sharpton paused to encourage others to sing "Happy Birthday" by Andrea Waters-King.

The president said about his wife, “My wife plays a role in our family. When someone is born, she sings the song (Happy Birthday).” But when it was Biden's turn to mention Watters King's first name in the song, he stuttered and seemed to start saying Valerie's name instead of Andrea.

The audience burst into laughter when the president faltered and said the wrong name into the microphone at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC.

The president concluded his stutter by saying, "Okay."

Andrea married Martin Luther King III in 2006, and they have a daughter, Yolanda Renee King.

The President had attacked the Republicans the same day during his conversation with reporters and demanded that they bring about a reduction in the federal fiscal deficit by one trillion dollars.

"Listen to the fact that there will be hundreds of billions of dollars in cuts over the next decade," Biden told the audience, as they clapped.

I think they have become financially unhinged.”

And the president traveled last Sunday to Atlanta, and he was the first US president in power to attend a ceremony at the “Ebenezer Baptist” Church, which was led by Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. from 1960 until his assassination in 1968.
