President Joe Biden has called VP Kamala Harris the “president” during his Thursday speech in which he references vaccinations.
“This is very important,” President Biden said of the nation’s immunization push. “Because we know efficiency and speed must be accompanied by equity and fairness. Now, when President Harris had a tour of the vaccination facility down in Arizona not too long ago, one of the people on that tour — the nurse who was giving people vaccinations, said that every vaccination was like giving people a dose of hope.”
This the second time President Biden has mistakenly referred to his VP as the commander in chief. Biden called her the “president-elect” before he took Office in December.
“I took the vaccine to give the public confidence. President-elect Harris also took hers today for the same reasons,” Biden said at the time.
