President Biden’s basket of blunders continued to overflow in February and early March with more telling blunders, countless stumbles and falls, and even a misplaced laugh that landed him in hot water.
These follow what turned out to be a rough January for Biden, during which he averaged just under half a gaffe per work day as he tried to divert attention from his classified documents scandal and focus on other issues facing the country.
In early February, Biden bizarrely boasted during a speech at the White House that “more than half of the women” on his team “are women.”

“More than half of the women in my cabinet, more than half of the people in my cabinet, more than half of the women in my government are women,” Biden said at the 30th anniversary commemoration of the Family and Medical Leave Act.
Biden also had trouble multiple times when he tried to climb the stairs to board Air Force One. He tripped and fell while climbing them on a visit to Poland on February 22, and nearly did so again two weeks later on a trip to Alabama.
On the second occasion, he only seemed to lose his footing, avoiding obliterating completely.

Biden was shot while speaking to the House Democratic Caucus Issues Conference in early March when he laughed while talking about a mother who had lost two children to fentanyl.
“I should probably digress, I’ve read that she was very specific recently saying that a mother, a poor mother who lost two children to fentanyl, that I killed her sons. Well, the interesting thing is that fentanyl they took came during the last administration,” Biden said with a laugh, referring to criticism he had received from Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., On the fentanyl crisis.
BIDEN’S YEAR OF FORGETTING, GOING THE WRONG WAY AND SAYING THE WRONG
Earlier this week, Biden inadvertently shared details about former President Jimmy Carter’s health while speaking at a private Democratic fundraiser before later admitting that he “shouldn’t have said that.”
According to Biden, Carter, a cancer survivor who was admitted to hospice last month, has instructed him to deliver his eulogy as soon as he passes away. Biden later suggested that Carter’s cancer had returned.

“He asked me to do his eulogy — excuse me, I’m not allowed to say that,” Biden noted. “I spent time with Jimmy Carter and it finally caught up with him. But they found a way to keep him going for much longer than they expected because they found a breakthrough.”
