US President Joe Biden was once again caught mumbling that he "was going to get in trouble", during a meeting with European Union leaders at EU headquarters in Brussels. The repeated act of the US President led to many netizens calling him an 'embarrassment'.
The US President held a bilateral meeting with the European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and European Council President Charles Michel. The White House said that the meeting was to "underscore our commitment to a strong transatlantic partnership."
Biden Forgot to Thank His Top Aides
In a video from the meeting which has gone viral on the social media, Biden was talking about forgetting to thank a list of his top aides during his meeting.
"And uh, I've said before and I apologize for the - Oh, I didn't Jake Sullivan from the State Department [inaudible]. I'm leaving out a lot of people here I apologize. I'm going to get in trouble. But, anyway, we'll get back to that. But um we um you know...'" Biden is heard mumbling in the video.
The fear of getting in trouble was sparked by the US President just two days ago when he had joked about getting in trouble with his staff if he didn't answer questions from a pre-approved list of reporters.
Earlier, during a press conference after the G7 summit in Cornwall, the US President caused a major embarrassment after he repeatedly confused Libya and Syria three times.
