Joe Biden was caught in an embarrassing blunder as he addressed a crowd in Philadelphia on election day. The US presidential hopeful was attempting to introduce his granddaughter Natalie Biden. While speaking through a megaphone to the crowd he introduced her as his deceased son Beau, Natalie’s father. 

After his gaffe, the crowd quickly falls silent forcing Mr Biden to correct himself at which point the cheers begin again.

Mr Biden said: “I want to introduce you to two of my granddaughters.

“This is my son Beau Biden who a lot of you helped elect to the senate in Delaware.”

As the crowd continues to murmur, Mr Biden attempts to correct himself.

As he realised his mistake he said: “This is my granddaughter Natalie.

“No wait I have got the wrong one.” 

During his Presidential campaign, Mr Biden has been criticised repeatedly for his many gaffes and errors. 

Some have argued these moments highlight his struggling health.


While others have insisted it is proof he is deserving of Donald Trump’s nickname for him, sleepy Joe.

Last week Monday, Mr Biden was mocked for making another naming gaffe while speaking to voters.

During a virtual event to encourage enthusiasm, the US presidential hopeful’s wife Jill Biden was forced to correct him.

Mr Biden said: “We need to look at what kind of country that we are going to be.

“Four more years of George, er, George, er, he – we’re going to find ourselves in a position where, if Trump gets elected, we’re going to be in a different world.”

Mrs Biden then quickly reminded her husband it was Donald Trump who was currently President.

Trump also took to Twitter to mock his opponent for his error.

He said: “Joe Biden called me George Yesterday, couldn’t remember my name.

“Got some help from the anchor to get him through the interview, the fake news cartel is working overtime to cover it up.”
