Democrat President Joe Biden appeared at one point during a press conference on Wednesday afternoon to forget the name of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy after meeting with the California Republican just a few hours prior. The president’s remarks came at an event late this afternoon where he delivered updates about his administration’s work in combatting the coronavirus pandemic. Earlier in the afternoon, Biden met with McCarthy, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi about topics of bipartisan agreement. “I’m encouraged not just because of a solid meeting with um, with uh, the uh, Republican leader in the House and with, uh, with Mitch, or Senator McConnell, who I’ve known a long, long time and worked with,” Biden said. Biden drew criticism back in March at a press conference where he appeared at one point to forget the name of Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin while speaking at an event on International Women’s Day. “I want to thank you both and I want to thank the sec-, the, the, ugh, the former general, I keep calling him general but my, my, ugh, the guy who runs that outfit over there,’ Biden said.
