Democratic US presidential candidate calls President Donald Trump “George” during an online campaign event, appearing to confuse him with former president George Bush and drawing ridicule from the incumbent president.
“Not because I’m running, but because who I’m running against, this is the most consequential election in a long, long, long time,” Biden says.
“And the character of the country in my view is literally on the ballot. What kind of country we’re gonna be? Four more years of George, ah, George, he… gonna find ourselves in a position where if Trump gets elected we’re gonna be in a different world.”

Trump responds with a gleeful tweet, falsely claiming that Biden needed the interviewer to remind him of Trump’s name.
Joe Biden called me George yesterday. Couldn’t remember my name. Got some help from the anchor to get him through the interview. The Fake News Cartel is working overtime to cover it up!
