77-year-old Joe Biden let the truth slip on Tuesday during his speech in Tampa, Florida and referred to a “Harris-Biden Administration.” Only one day earlier, Kamala Harris slipped in a virtual forum speaking about “A Harris administration together with Joe Biden.”
Biden, who has aroused concerns over his fitness for the presidency in recent weeks, told reporters in Tampa that a White House helmed by himself and Sen. Kamala Harris would work to expand opportunities not only for veterans, but military families as well.
“The Harris-Biden administration will relaunch that effort and make it easier for military spouses and veterans meaningful careers, to ensure teachers know how to support military children in the classroom, and to improve support for caregivers and survivors so much more than we do now,” the former vice president added.

It is unclear if Biden misspoke or was having technical issues, as his campaign has occasionally resorted to using teleprompters for public events. Such language has led some to suggest the Biden campaign is deliberately pitching Harris as the dominant player on the Democrat ticket.
Biden himself has indulged such speculation by asserting that the major reason he picked Harris is because she is “ready to lead on day one.”
But wait…Kamala Harris made the same Freudian slip earlier this week!

The Democrat nominee’s pitch for “Harris-Biden administration” comes only days after his running mate used similar language while addressing a virtual forum of Latino small business owners from Arizona.
“As part of our Build Back Better agenda, we will need to make sure you have a president in the White House who actually sees you, who understands your needs, who understands the dignity of your work, and who has your back,” Harris said on Saturday, according to the Arizona Republic.
“A Harris administration together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States, the Biden-Haris administration will provide access to 100 billion dollars in low-interest loans and investments for minority-business owners,” she added.
Both those remarks and Biden’s on Tuesday underscore the concerns that have arisen in recent months over the Democrat nominee’s fitness and stamina for the White House. Since jumping into the 2020 race last year, the former vice president has flummoxed even the most ardent of supporters with his frequent gaffes and misstatements.
