Brain Freeze: Biden Struggles To Name Defense Secretary, Department of Defense (Video)

While speaking at an event marking International Women’s Day at the White House on Monday, His Lying Demented Fraudulence, Emperor Joe Biden I suffered what appeared to be a brain freeze, causing him to have difficulty recalling the Department of Defense, and the name of the man he selected to run it, Lloyd Austin.

“So I want to thank you both, and I want to thank the sec… the former general, I keep calling him general but my… my, uh… the guy who runs that outfit over there,” he said.

According to Breitbart:

Biden spoke at a White House event highlighting his nomination of two women General Officers for positions as four-star Combatant Commanders — Air Force Gen. Jacqueline Van Ovost and Army Lt. Gen. Laura Richardson.

Here’s video, as posted to Twitter:

Breitbart added:

Biden concluded, “I want to make sure we thank the secretary for all he’s done to try to implement what we just talked about.”

Austin, who was present for the event, spoke about Biden’s and Vice President Kamala Harris’s celebration of the historic nominations.

“Both of you lead by example, and the example that you set in all things is one of inclusiveness,” Austin said, praising Biden and Harris. “You know that diversity of our nation makes us stronger, and that diversity in our military ranks makes us better at defending the American people.”

Response on Twitter was predictable:

And that’s on a good day.


There’s a lot more like this, by the way.

Twitchy noted: “The reason they don’t want Biden to take questions is self-explanatory at this point.”

Indeed.  It’s almost as if we don’t really have a president these days.  We can’t help but agree with Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., who wondered if we’re seeing the beginning of a transition to a Harris regime.
