Joe Biden provided the latest televised gaffe of his presidency when he attempted to wish the daughter-in-law of Martin Luther King, Jr. on the day of the latter’s federal holiday.
Though not quite rising to the level of Trunalimunumaprzure, the moment nonetheless captures the essence of Joe Biden, who presumably forgot – and never really knew to begin with – the name of King’s kin.
The New York Post set up the cringe-inducing spectacle, which it described as “mortifying.”
The mortifying moment meant to honor 49-year-old Arndrea Waters King came as the 80-year-old president spoke at an event organized by Al Sharpton’s National Action Network and co-chaired by Martin Luther King III, 65, and his wife,” the New York Post wrote.
The Post later described Biden as trying to “search out the woman’s name on his teleprompter” while singing his off-key rendition.
“Biden’s eyes appeared to search out the woman’s name on his teleprompters midway through the tune in front of hundreds of guests at Washington’s historic Mayflower Hotel,” the Post continued.

Well look, my wife has a rule in our family. When it’s somebody’s birthday, you sing Happy Birthday ready?
Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday, dear Valz-dvit. Happy birthday to you. Well…
Amazingly, the botched birthday wish was hardly the lone embarrassment of the evening. Biden miserably preambled his way to the song by describing Dr. King as “Martin the Third” in a long, meandering run-on sentence. Not seen on the video was this catastrophe of the spoken English language:
“Martin the Third, we celebrate a legacy of your beloved father and mother. They worked for the beloved community. But congratulations today to the honorees including your wife, who I understand it’s her birthday today?” Biden uttered.
Immediately afterward, members of the King family were seen laughing and shaking their heads in what could only be called a combination of bewilderment and embarrassment. And yet they will vote for this senile fool again in 2024 if given the chance.
No doubt, Biden’s oratory failure at NAN continues the unimpressive and disturbing streak of presidential humiliation. It’s been likened to another recent head-shaker in which he sought out a deceased lawmaker among attendees. Biden infamously asked “Where’s Jackie” in reference to Jackie Walorski, who was killed in a car accident months before he began his query.
Still, as bad as these moments are, they provide cover for the very real crimes his family has committed. On the same day that Biden flubbed Arndrea’s name, which to be fair is not a common name, bombshell reporting came out that disclosed a massive and fraudulent cover-up of the Hunter Biden laptop story circa 2020.
That story was reported to the world in October of 2020 and could easily have been the tipping point in a Donald Trump re-election bid. Instead, federal agencies and social media colluded to bury the blockbuster scandal. It did so with the help of 51 intelligence veterans. Now, those veterans are speaking out about their role in covering up the truth.
The American Tribune joined dozens of other outlets in reporting on this revelation.
The Tribune wrote: “Defense Intelligence Agency deputy director Douglas Wise told The Australian, “all of us figured that a significant portion of that content had to be real to make any Russian disinformation credible.”
It continued: Wise did also try to defend the letter, however, saying “The letter said it had the earmarks of Russian deceit and we should consider that as a possibility. It did not say Hunter Biden was a good guy, it didn’t say what he did was right and it wasn’t exculpatory, it was just a cautionary letter.”
Wise also defended signing the letter, saying that he does not regret signing it “because context is important”. He also claimed that the laptop’s “chain of custody” left open the possibility that “Russians or even ill-intended conservative elements could have planted stuff in there,’” the Tribune concluded.
