DEMOCRATIC nominee Joe Biden referred to his own campaign as “Harris-Biden” instead of “Biden-Harris” — just a day after his running mate Kamala Harris had the same awkward slip.
Biden uttered the mistake on Tuesday during a campaign event in Tampa, Florida.
“The Harris-Biden administration is going to relaunch that effort and keep pushing further to make it easier for military spouses and veterans to find meaningful careers,” Biden said.
Biden’s embarrassing moment came after vice presidential candidate Harris accidentally touted “the Harris administration” during a campaign event on Monday.
Harris, currently a senator from California, was speaking during a virtual economic roundtable with small business owners in Arizona when she made the remark.
“A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States,” the 55-year-old Democrat said.
Harris then quickly clarified: “The Biden-Harris administration will provide access to $100billion in low-interest loans and investments from minority business owners.”
Many online jumped on the error, calling it a “Freudian slip,” while others online said it was “no accident.”
