Oops! Joe Biden Mixes Up Taylor Swift and Britney Spears in Turkey Pardoning Speech
President Joe Biden mistakenly referred to Taylor Swift as Britney Spears during the White House’s annual Thanksgiving turkey pardon ceremony while discussing the Liberty and Bell turkeys and their journey. He mentioned Taylor Swift’s overseas tour using the name Britney. “Even harder than buying a ticket for the Britney tour or the Renaissance tour.” He explained, “She’s down, the weather is pretty hot in Brazil right now.”

“This is harder than getting a ticket for the Revival tour, or the Britney tour…it’s kind of hot in Brazil right now”

Pop Crave posted a video of Biden’s mistake on X, and many users commented, suggesting that his age may be a factor in making errors during his speeches. On Nov. 20, Biden will turn 81. “Take your Grandpa to bed,” someone tweeted, while another wrote, “Get this man out of office.” “Even people with dementia KNOW about the Renaissance tour,” claimed another, adding, “This guy shouldn’t be running a country.” Meanwhile, Taylor returned to the stage in Brazil after rescheduling his performance due to the death of a fan. The singer appeared to pay a heartfelt tribute to his fan, Ana Clara Benevides, who died after falling ill due to the heat at the concert venue.

During his 81st Birthday Remarks, President Joe Biden confuses ‘anti-hero’ singer Taylor Swift with Britney Spears
On Monday, President Joe Biden’s Taylor Swift blunder during the White House’s traditional Thanksgiving turkey pardon went viral on social media. During his speech at the annual Christmas celebration, Biden appeared to mix Britney Spears and Taylor Swift, who are on tour in Brazil, while explaining how far the two turkeys, Liberty and Bell, to receive a pardon. The mistake comes as Biden continues to face questions about his age ahead of the 2024 presidential election, with detractors raising concerns about his gaffes as president. Her latest mistake happened on her 81st birthday. “It’s even harder than getting tickets to the Renaissance or Britney tours.” He added, “Spears is down in…it’s hot in Brazil right now.” Spears has not toured since 2018. The term “Renaissance” refers to Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour, which ended on October 1. On Friday, during a heat wave in Brazil, one of Swift’s fans died at the event venue when the temperature exceeded 60. degrees Celsius (140 degrees Fahrenheit). Despite being the Democratic nominee for president next year, Biden continues to face questions about his age, especially from many Democrats.
He has also faced criticism for his ability to connect with young people, who have split with him over key issues such as the conflict between Israel and Hamas in the run-up to the 2024 election. On social media, detractors responded Biden for the gaffe. “Biden jokes about difficulty getting tickets for Beyonce’s Renaissance Tour, except he calls her Brittany.” On the other hand, he claims that she is now performing in Brazil, where Taylor Swift recently finished her Eras Tour. “Beyonce’s tour ended in October,” Greg Price, a conservative pundit on X, Twitter previously said. “President Joe Biden will only confuse Taylor Swift and Britney Spears during his annual Thanksgiving turkey pardon,” said Amber Duke, editor of The Spectator, a conservative British weekly. Biden has made several gaffes in recent months that have alarmed both Republicans and Democrats. He said in October that he had toured Israel for the first time before the Six Day War. His first trip to Israel was in 1973, shortly before the Yom Kippur War. In September, he called rapper LL Cool J “LL J Cool J” during his speech at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s annual Legislative Conference.
He is 190 years old soon to be an ancestor. What did you expect?

As long as he knows the Renaissance journey that is important to me. He knows the important one.
