President Joe Biden again referred to Vice President Kamala Harris as “President Harris” on Tuesday, apparently forgetting again that he was the President of the United States.
“Last week President Harris and I …” Biden began, referring to their speeches on Capitol Hill marking the one year anniversary of the January 6 protests for the 2020 election.
The President spoke about Harris and the Jan. 6 protests during a speech in Georgia, criticizing Republicans and Senate Democrats for blocking legislation that would federalize state and local elections.
“Pass the free vote law. Spend it now! Biden said.
He called for filibuster reform that would allow the bill to move forward, despite resistance from two Democratic senators to political pressure to do so.
Biden decried the Senate for its 50-50 split, complaining that it was just a “shell of itself” – an institution that was once known as “the world’s greatest legislative body.”
He said he supported changing the filibuster “in any way” so that they could federalize the elections.
“To protect our democracy, I support changing the rules of the Senate,” he concluded. “When it comes to protecting majority rule in America, the majority should rule in the United States Senate.”
Biden also referred to Harris as president in a December speech in South Carolina and in March during a coronavirus speech in DC.
