Freudian Slip: Biden Calls Kamala Harris ‘President-Elect’

Fact checked
Biden calls Kamala Harris 'President-elect'

Joe Biden made yet another verbal gaffe Tuesday when he ‘accidentally’ referred to Kamala Harris as ‘president-elect.’

Biden made the admission during his scripted remarks regarding the coronavirus pandemic in Wilmington, Delaware.

“I hope the president will clearly and unambiguously urge all Americans to take the vaccine once it’s available,” Biden declared. 

“I took it to instill public confidence in the vaccine. President-elect Harris took hers today for the same reason.” reports: Earlier Tuesday, Harris received the Moderna vaccine on live television.

“Literally, this is about saving lives; it’s literally about saving lives,” Harris said of the vaccine. “I trust the scientists. And it is the scientists that created and approved this vaccine.”

Biden received the vaccine on December 21.

Biden’s flub today isn’t the first time his remarks have stirred talk about Harris assuming the presidency, perhaps after the president-elect’s first term.

In August, Biden said he selected Harris as his running mate because she is “ready to lead on day one.”

“If @KamalaHarris and I are elected, we’re going to inherit multiple crises, a nation divided, and a world in disarray. “We won’t have a minute to waste,” Biden tweeted at the time. “That’s exactly why I picked her: She’s ready to lead on day one.”

In September, Harris referred to the “Harris administration” during a virtual roundtable on the economy.

“A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States,” she said before quickly correcting herself.
