U.S. President Joe Biden mixed up ex-President Barack Obama and ex-President Donald Trump during a recent speech.
Biden called his mistake a “Freudian slip”…
“Back in 2009, during the so-called Great Recession, the president asked me to be in charge of managing that piece, then-President Trump,” Biden told the people of Pennsylvania on Wednesday. “Excuse me, Freudian slip, that was the last president. He caused the…anyway, President Obama when I was vice-president.”
Needless to say, people wasted no time picking up on the mistake and called out the President online.

McClatchy reporter Bryan Lowry also made a tweet, saying:
