There he goes again: Biden mixes up Gaza with Ukraine in latest senior moment

President Joe Biden’s handlers are going to have some heavy lifting to do if they expect to convince voters that he’s fit for another four years and he isn’t giving them much help.

In another of the senior moments that only validate the critics who say that he’s too old and mentally feeble for the job, the geriatric Democrat fired off another doozy on Friday, once again becoming confused over foreign countries.

During a meeting with Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni at the White House, Biden was discussing the unfortunate incident on Thursday when dozens of people were killed and hundreds more injured when gunfire erupted around a food convoy and he got Gaza mixed up with Ukraine during his remarks.

“Today, I also, we’re going to discuss the Middle East and yesterday’s tragic and alarming event in north Gaza, trying to get humanitarian in there and the loss of life is heartbreaking,” Biden said. “People are so desperate that innocent people got caught in a terrible war to feed their families. And you saw the response when they tried to get aid. And we need to do more, and the United States will do more in the coming days.

“We’re going to join with our friends in Jordan and others in providing airdrops of, additional food and supplies into Ukraine and, seek to continue to open up other avenues in the Ukraine, including the possibility of a marine corridor, deliver large amounts of humanitarian assistance in addition to expanding deliveries by land,” he added, another big headache for his campaign team.

What is particularly embarrassing for Team Biden this time is that the president had been reading off of what appeared to be a cheat sheet as damage control efforts continued in the aftermath of Special Counsel Robert Hur’s devastating report that concluded that the “sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” was too senile for a jury to convict.

Biden’s mixup comes after he confused the presidents of Egypt and Mexico last month during a disastrous impromptu presser in which he denounced Hur’s observations, serving up more fodder for those who believe that it’s long past time to shuffle him off to the old folks’ home.

Regime spox John Kirby acted as Johnny on the spot with a wet mop cleanup during Friday’s daily press briefing.

The reaction to Biden’s latest addition to his extensive blooper reel drew a savage response from X users.

Biden campaign staffers were looking to move beyond the questions about his mental faculties and advanced age, using the upcoming State of the Union address as a reset opportunity and limiting him to controlled settings like his appearance with late-night leftist Seth Myers last week. But the illusion could come crashing down at any time that the president opens his mouth.
