U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden briefly appeared to mistake his granddaughter for his son as he spoke in Philadelphia on election day, in a verbal blunder that was quickly grabbed by the Trump campaign.
Biden, a former stutterer known to get tangled easily in his words, introduced the daughter of his son Beau – who died of brain cancer in 2015 – to supporters in the city of Pennsylvania when he called her “no other than my son Beau Biden. “
He quickly corrected himself to say “this is my granddaughter Natalie”, before realizing that he had wrapped his arm around the wrong grandchild, noting his mistake and shooting Natalie.
With the campaign over and with the two candidates now waiting for the final votes to be cast and the election called, the confusion has given President Donald Trump’s campaign one final mistake to offer his supporters as proof of what it has got. long referred to as Biden’s senility. .
“WATCH: Joe Biden confuses his granddaughters,” the Trump campaign posted on Twitter with an accompanying video of the incident.

Trump, 74, also blunders regularly, both verbally and on Twitter, but insists he has all the “best words.”
Biden mentions Beau on almost every public occasion. As Delaware’s attorney general from 2007 to 2015 and an army reservist who served in Iraq, Beau had flirted with following in his father’s footsteps in the Senate and seemed destined to reach the national stage.
Biden began the morning with a visit to the Delaware church where Beau is buried alongside Biden’s first wife and daughter, who died in a car crash in 1972.
