Joe Biden highlighted his administration’s push to dramatically expand the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines. That comes as the nation is on the cusp of meeting its goal of injecting 100 million doses in his first 100 days in office.
Biden today addressed the progress his administration has made to reach his goal of getting 100 million coronavirus vaccines into the arms of Americans within his first 100 days in office
Joe “misspoke” again during the speech today, referring to his vice president as “President Harris.”
“When President Harris and I took …” Biden said, before momentarily pausing, “a virtual tour of a vaccination site in Arizona not long ago, one of the nurses on that tour injecting people, giving vax each shot, was like administering a dose of hope.”

Calls her “President Harris.”
– Doesn’t say “God Bless America.”
– Waits for Harris to walk through the doorway before he does.
– Storms out without taking a single question.
Some leader of the free world Joe Biden has turned out to be.

At the same time, the president announced the administration would achieve its goal of 100 million vaccines administered in 100 days on Friday, the 58th day of the new administration. At this point, Biden said, 65% of people aged 65 and older have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine.
The president has made such gaffes before. In December he mistakenly referred to Harris as “president-elect,” also during a speech on Covid-19 vaccines. “I took it to instill public confidence in the vaccine. President-elect Harris took hers today for the same reason,” Biden said.
The comments ignited speculation of cognitive decline from the right, following a campaign where Biden repeatedly appeared tongue-tied.
Harris, too, once accidentally dubbed herself commander-in-chief. “A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States,” she said at a virtual roundtable in September.
President Biden, who is 78-years-old, has struggled with a stutter since his childhood and has occasionally slipped-up while speaking in public.
At a CNN town hall last year, Biden discussed his stutter and said: “It has nothing to do with your intelligence quotient. It has nothing to do with your intellectual makeup.”
He said he thinks “part of it’s confidence” and that he has to “think in terms of not rushing.”
Biden explained a technique he uses to help his speech and said: “You have to break it up, because you get so nervous.
“So what I do, if I say, ‘The Democratic presidential town hall is tonight on CNN,’ I’ll say: ‘The presidential town hall, slash, is on CNN tonight, slash, it’s going to have the following people, slash, Anderson Cooper is going to speak, slash.”
