During a speech he delivered yesterday morning, President Joe Biden managed to sneak in one of his signature gaffes.
Biden was talking about the latest jobs report, touting the increase of 943,000 payrolls in July, when he decided he deserved an extra pat on the back. He wanted to brag about the number of Americans who have been vaccinated so far.
But, as it turns out, the joke is on him, because he got the number very wrong.
“We have roughly 350 million people vaccinated in the United States and billions around the world,” he said. “We have to get more vaccinated. I said, well over, what’s the number — 350 million Americans have already been vaccinated.”
This would be a pretty big deal if there was any truth to it.
