White House issues a whopping nine corrections to Biden’s NAACP speech transcript

The White House transcript made nine corrections to President Biden’s gaffe-filled speech to the NAACP on Monday.

Biden made multiple confusing comments and flubbed words while speaking to the civil rights organization in Michigan. One notable one included his suggestion he was vice president during the COVID-19 pandemic, which began nearly four years after he left office .

“When I was vice president, things were kind of bad during the pandemic,” Biden said near the beginning of his remarks. “And, what happened was Barack [Obama] said to me: ‘Go to Detroit – help fix it.’”

The next day, the White House’s correction implied that Biden intended to say “recession,” referencing the Great Recession when he assumed the vice presidency in 2009.
