White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre may have said the quiet part out loud when she slipped up and called Barack Obama the president.
Jean-Pierre’s alleged slip of the tongue came as she was making announcements at the top of the briefing, causing a wave of laughter and surprise among the press corps.
“So today, as you all saw just an hour or so ago, President Obama announced that—Pardon me, President Biden!” Jean-Pierre said as reporters shouted surprise. “Whoa! Ahem, that is news. I know, we’re going back not forwards. We’ve gotta go forwards.”

The slip-up comes amid rumors regarding Biden’s plans for 2024. While the White House insists he “intends to run,” many Democrats have expressed skepticism due to his age. Many expected Biden to make an announcement in the wake of his State of the Union speech earlier this month, but nothing ever came.
