MAY 22 2021 U.S. PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN MISTOOK SOUTH KOREAN PRESIDENT MOON JOON-OE FOR “PRIME MINISTER” AT AN AWARDS CEREMONY ON MAY 21, LOCAL TIME, THE NEW YORK POST REPORTED.
At the awards ceremony, Biden and Wen reportedly held a maskless, social-free celebration at the White House. To his delight, Biden was giving Ralph Puckett, Jr., a 94-year-old retired U.S. Army colonel who fought in the Korean War The award of the Medal of Honor confuses the title of President of South Korea. “The people of the Republic of Korea have not forgotten you, and the Prime Minister of south Korea attended the ceremony, and that is the evidence,” he said. ”
It is reported that the Prime Minister of South Korea, known as the Prime Minister of the Republic of Korea, nominated by the President of the Republic of Korea, and approved by the National Assembly, is the highest head of the Cabinet of the Korean Government, responsible for coordinating the work of cabinet members, only when the President of South Korea is impeached, the Prime Minister will temporarily act as President. It’s hard to see how Biden’s slip of the tongue has reduced Wen’s position, but Wen doesn’t care, and he’s happy to take a photo with Biden on both sides of the veteran’s half-knee. Wen said he was told he was the first foreign leader to attend the highest U.S. military honors ceremony.
This is not the first time Biden has reportedly made a slip of the tongue. In a May 20 speech celebrating the ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, Biden called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “President Netanyahu.” It is reported that the Israeli President is the head of state of Israel, elected by the Israeli parliament, but the power is only symbolic and ceremonial, the Israeli Prime Minister is the head of government and the country’s supreme leader.
In addition to confusing positions of foreign officials, Biden often misrepresents words in speeches. On April 28th, in a speech to a joint session of the U.S. House and Senate, Biden never read the word “escalation” accurately. On April 21, In A Speech On The New U.S. Crown Outbreak, Biden MisreaD The Word “Barbershop” As “Bar,” Causing The Media To Be UnSUbbed. Also in April, Biden misread the Russian president’s name Putin as “Krutin” in a conversation.
Biden’s slip-of-mouth, coupled with a fall on board the plane, has raised concerns about his health, and even the White House team is deeply concerned that his health is affecting the quality of the speech. White House press secretary George Psaki acknowledged that U.S. President Joe Biden’s impromptu questioning from reporters “wasn’t recommended by the White House team,” according to FoxNews.com.
