President Joe Biden, who shares a history of stumbling over words made an ugly Freudian slip Wednesday, November 9. While responding to a press question, Joe Biden accidentally misspoke and said Russian troops were pulling out of “Fallujah” while intending to reference the city of Kherson in southeastern Ukraine.

“I think the context is that whether or not they’re pulling back from Fallujah - from the city of Kherson – and [Russian forces] are coming back across the river to the eastern side of the [Dnieper} river,” Biden said while answering a reporter’s question about whether Ukraine is ready to enter negotiations with Russia.

Fallujah is a city in the Iraqi province of Al Anbar. Fallujah was the setting of the bloodiest urban conflict American forces had fought since the Vietnam War in November and December of 2004. Approximately 12,000 US troops fought in the battle, 82 of whom were killed, while about another 600 were wounded, according to the Pentagon. The US killed about 2,000 insurgents in the battle and captured another 1,200, military officials estimated. It is widely known as one of the key moments in the US invasion of Iraq.

Biden also stated that he “found it interesting” that Russia decided to announce its withdrawal from the region after Tuesday’s US midterm elections. Speaking about Russia and Ukraine's conflict he said, “We knew for some time that they were going to be going as evidence of the fact that they have some real problems in the Russian military,” Biden said. “It remains to be seen whether or not there’ll be a judgment made as to whether or not Ukraine is prepared to compromise with Russia.” The president said he believed Russian and Ukrainian leaders would “lick their wounds” after the withdrawal before deciding “what they’re going to do over the winter and decide whether or not they’re going to compromise,” reported New York Post

Social media users have yet again taken a jab at Biden claiming the president who is soon going to be 80 years old is suffering from declining health problems and should retire. While netizens have also demanded that there should be an age limit set for Presidency.

One Twitter user wrote, "The US need to enforce a maximum age limit of 65 on the presidency. (so should other countries) Any president over 65 should retire." Another user questioned, "Who thinks the age limit to be President should be 65 and under?" One user simply wrote, "Also—if people are too young to serve as President before age 35, there should be an upper limit to the age when you can serve in public office." "Like him or not, Biden's swift cognitive decline is evident to anyone with eyes. We really do need a maximum age limit for who can run for president. No one over 70," A user remarked. Another chimed, "i’m sorry, but we don’t need senators, congress members, judges, governors, state legislators, presidents or whoever else that are 80+ years old idc what party affiliation— if there’s an age requirement to run, there needs to be an age limit to hold that position as well."
