Joe Biden raised eyebrows yet again during a White House speech on Monday by inexplicably declaring that he and the prime minister of the Cook Islands are from Baltimore, even though neither of them appear to have any roots in the city.
The bizarre comments came as the 80-year-old US President welcomed a group of world leaders to Washington for the two-day summit of the US - Pacific Island Forum.
Speaking alongside Cook Islands Prime Minister Mark Brown, Biden fleshed out why the two nations will benefit from diplomatic ties, before adding they were both from Baltimore.
Putting his hand on the shoulder of Brown, Biden said: “The real reason is, we are both from Baltimore. But that’s a long story.”
Antony Blinken appears confused by Joe Biden's comment
The Cook Islands prime minister is seen laughing nervously, appearing perplexed at the comment.
Biden’s Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, appears confused as he watches on.
