Biden Mocks Critics Who Think He’s ‘Stupid’ Right before Embarrassing Gaffe: ‘Where’s Doug?’

During a speech in Virginia, Democrat President Joe Biden mocked people who think he’s “stupid” right before he made an embarrassing gaffe.

Biden went to a Steamfitters Union hall in Springfield to talk about the economic progress that the White House claims the country has made during the president’s first term.

However, the president delivered a flub-filled performance that went viral on social media for all the wrong reasons.

Biden started off by making a joke to mock his critics who think he is “stupid.”

He then started repeatedly flubbing the name of a congressman.

Biden started with a joke:

“How are you all doing?  Please, take a seat if you have one.  (Laughs.)

“I said that, I said that — when I was seeking the nomination, I said, ‘Take a seat, everybody.’

“And there wasn’t a single chair in the place.

“And they said, ‘That Biden really is stupid.  He doesn’t know…’”

After a positive start, the speech almost immediately went downhill fast.

Biden then called out for Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA) but he called him “Doug.”

He looked lost, scanning the crowd for “Doug” until an audience member helped him out.

He repeated the flub calling Beyer “Doug” multiple times until finally catching himself.

Biden said: “Where’s Doug [Don]? The congressman.

“He’s around here somewhere.”

“Right here!” someone shouted from the audience.

“Oh, there you are,” Biden said.

“Doug [Don], thanks for the passport into town.

“Doug [Don] and I have something in common.

“We both married way above our station.

“Way above our station.”

The White House transcript shows Biden made the gaffe several times.
