During a left-wing event on Monday, President Joe Biden struggled to recall the name of Martin Luther King Jr.'s daughter-in-law while singing "Happy Birthday" to her.
The incident occurred as President Joe Biden, 80, was speaking to the National Action Network, an organization led by Al Sharpton, Martin Luther King III, and his wife.
“Martin the Third, we celebrate a legacy of your beloved father and mother. They worked for the beloved community. But congratulations today to the honorees including your wife, who I understand it’s her birthday today?” Biden said of 49-year-old Arndrea Waters King.
“Well look, my wife has a rule in our family, when it’s someone’s birthday, you sing ‘Happy Birthday,’” Biden added. “You ready?”
“Happy Birthday to you,” Biden started. “Happy Birthday to you.”
“Happy Birthday dear [inaudible],” Biden finished. “Happy Birthday to you.”

During the event, Biden was able to pull it together long enough to label Republicans “fiscally demented.”
The statements were in reference to House Republicans withdrawing additional funding that the Democrats had approved for strengthening the IRS.
“They’re going to talk about big spending Democrats again,” Biden said, adding, “There’s gonna be hundreds of billions reduced over the next decade, but so what? These guys are the fiscally — well, they’re fiscally demented, I think. They don’t quite get it.”
“You know, all these new IRS agents we have is because they fired a lot of them and a lot are retiring. And guess what? Who needs serious agents to know what they’re doing or not doing? The billionaires, the multi-multi-millionaires,” Biden said. “And according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, this one bill alone will add $114 billion to the deficit."
President Joe Biden also delivered a message to gun owners during his speech, advocating for restrictions on the capacity of ammunition in firearm magazines.
“Ban the number of bullets that go in a magazine. There’s no, no need for any of that. I love my right-wing friends who talk about ‘the tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots,’” Biden said. “If you need to worry about taking on the federal government, you need some F-15s. You don’t need any AR-15. I’m serious. Think about it.”
