During remarks regarding Ukrainian aid, President Biden stumbled a couple of times —even confusing which country he was talking about at one point. The gaffe master was caught saying the United States “made sure Russia had Javelins” and noting the successful “Hungarian” resistance to Russia’s invasion.
“Before Russia attacked, we made sure Russia had Javelins and other weapons to strengthen their defenses so Ukraine was ready for whatever happened,” Biden said midway through his 16-minute speech at the plant.
Later, Biden said, “Just a few days ago, the Wall Street Journal quoted a young Hungarian fighter saying, ‘Without the Javelins, it would have been very hard to stop the enemy pushing ahead.’”

Former White House doctor Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) continues to question Biden’s mental health on Twitter:
“Does anyone HONESTLY believe Biden is all there? He gets lost on stage. He gets lost reading a teleprompter. His mind is GONE!!”

According to the New York Post, “The Journal’s report actually quoted a private first class named Oleksandr in Ukraine’s 128th Separate Mountain Assault Transcarpathian Brigade. The article does not identify him as Hungarian.”
“The president, who turns 80 this year, ironically began his remarks joking about his propensity to misspeak.”
