Biden appears to confuse woman with Dem congresswoman who wasn't in attendance: 'I got it mixed up'

 President Biden raised eyebrows Thursday when he appeared to confuse a woman with whom he took a photo for a Democrat North Carolina congresswoman who was not in attendance.

"I want to mention Congresswoman Deborah Ross, where's Deborah?" Biden asked the audience in North Carolina during a Thursday speech.

Biden added, "I had my picture taken with her, which is probably why she left."

"Oh, she can't really be here," Biden continued. "That's not true. I got it confused."

It's unclear who Biden took the photo with and who he "mixed" with.

Fox News Digital contacted the White House and Representative Ross' office for clarification but did not immediately receive a response.

Biden's remarks also prompted social media users to bring up a past mistake in which the president forgot about the death of Indiana Rep. Jackie Walorski when he asked where she was on stage after her death.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters 14 times that Biden was not confused about whether Walorski was alive and in the room, but that he was "top of mind" because he was there that week. Will finally meet his family.

Since becoming president, Biden has been widely criticized by conservatives over his age, including those who have openly questioned his mental acuity.

According to a recent report, Biden has held a series of closed-door meetings with his top donors to ease their concerns, including concerns about his age and energy, in the 2024 election.

The White House has vigorously defended Biden's mental acuity on several occasions, including in November when Jean-Pierre said he would "do this on behalf of the American people, against anyone, against anyone." Will use the President's stamina, the President's intelligence, ability." Day of the week."
