On Wednesday, Joe Biden spoke at an event near Vail, Colorado where he designated Camp Hale as a national monument. During his speech, Biden made one of his infamous blunders, and this time it was just as bad as his “Jackie” memory lapse.

While talking about the training that soldiers go through and the sacrifices they have to make, Biden referenced his late son, Beau, saying, “I say this as a father of a man who won the bronze star, the conspicuous service medal, and lost his life in Iraq.”

Beau Biden passed away in 2015 from brain cancer after fighting it for over two years. Not in Iraq, but at a medical center in Maryland.


Just last month, Biden made another glaring mistake while speaking at an event. In September, Biden was giving remarks at a “hunger, nutrition, and health” conference when he tried to give a shout-out to a congresswoman who had recently died in a tragic car accident.

“Jackie, are you here? Where’s Jackie?” Biden asked, intently searching the audience for the recently deceased Jackie Walorski.


“She must not be here,” he mumbled, not realizing the major error he had made.
