Joe Biden blames 'Freudian slip' for confusing Trump with Obama in speech gaffe
Telegraph, 29 Jul 2021
President Joe Biden confused former President Obama with Donald Trump during a speech today in Pennsylvania, blaming the mistake on a “Freudian slip”.
“Back in 2009, during the so-called Great Recession, the president asked me to be in charge of managing that piece, then-President Trump,” Biden said.
“Excuse me, Freudian slip, that was the last president. He caused the… anyway, President Obama when I was vice-president.”
A Freudian slip is described as an unintentional error regarded as revealing subconscious feelings.
