US President Joe Biden, who has committed a lot of gaffes in the past, has done it again. During an event commemorating Equal Pay Day for women on Tuesday, March 15, the Democrat called Vice President Kamala Harris “the first lady”. He was mentioning the reason for Harris not being present at the event when he made the mistake.

Biden said, “There’s been a little change in arrangement of who is on the stage because of the first lady’s husband contracting COVID,” prompting laughter from the audience. The video of the same has also been shared on Twitter, attracting a lot of negative attention. The clip also appeared to show someone correcting the commander-in-chief for his slip.

Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff’s positive Covid test result was disclosed by the White House on Tuesday evening. In a statement, Harris' spokesperson Sabrina Singh said, “Earlier today, the Second Gentleman tested positive for COVID-19. Out of an abundance of caution, the Vice President will not participate in tonight’s event. The Vice President tested negative for COVID-19 today and will continue to test.”

During Tuesday’s event, Biden also added, “Kamala chose not to take a chance since her husband had contracted Covid, although he’s feeling very well, I’m told. By the way, he’s fine, but out of an abundance of caution, she decided she wasn’t going to join us today. But let’s send her our love.”



 

 

It has been said Emhoff is the latest high-profile person who has tested positive for Covid. Former President Barack Obama has also contracted the virus. On Sunday, March 13, he tweeted, “I just tested positive for COVID. I’ve had a scratchy throat for a couple days, but am feeling fine otherwise. Michelle and I are grateful to be vaccinated and boosted, and she has tested negative. It’s a reminder to get vaccinated if you haven’t already, even as cases go down.”
