Biden calls bestie Zelensky ‘Vladimir’ day after NATO rejection

Joe Biden is once again having his cognitive fitness questioned after he mixed up Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky with Russian president Vladimir Putin.  Even though the names are practically the same, folks are jumping on the gaffe.

The 80-year-old president referred to Zelensky as ‘Vladimir’ while raving about the Ukrainian military for its fight against Moscow’s troops.

It is yet another high-profile gaffe from Biden, who would be 86 at the end of a second term were he to win re-election.  He quickly corrected himself saying he shouldn’t be ‘so familiar,’ and then referred to him as ‘Mr. Zelensky.”

Biden had just vowed to continue to stand by Ukraine ‘as long as it takes’ as he and fellow G7 leaders announced a new security deal for Kyiv.

The slip up came just one day after Zelensky launched a social media tirade against his Western allies over what he called an ‘absurd’ delay in creating a pathway to his country’s full membership of the NATO military alliance.

Speaking about America’s support for Ukraine, Biden said in a speech alongside fellow leaders from the G7, ‘We are going to be there as long as it takes.’

‘We are going to help Ukraine build a strong and capable defense across land, air and sea,’ he added, insisting that the Ukrainian military would be ‘a force of stability in the region.’

Assuming as long as the United States continues to send billions of dollars to his country’s aid, Volodymyr Zelensky doesn’t care what Biden calls him.
