Joe Biden mistakenly called a famous rapper by the wrong name to the Congressional Black Caucus last night, in yet another butchered speech by the US President.
Biden was presenting an award to American rapper LL Cool J when he appeared to stumble over his words and mistakenly called him “LL Jay Cool J”, resulting in the audience erupting in laughter at the President’s mistake.
The 80-year-old was presenting a Phoenix award to both LL Cool J and MC Lyte, for their musical contributions at the annual ceremony.
Appearing on stage, Biden said: “Two of the great artists of our time representing ground-breaking legacy of hip hop in America, LL Jay Cool J, uhhh…”
Joe Biden is the oldest-ever President to hold officePA
The audience at the show hosted in Washington DC began laughing at the President’s error, the latest in a series of gaffes the 80-year-old has become known for.
He continued: “By the way that boy - that man's got biceps bigger than my thighs.”
After the blunder, the President went on to congratulate MC Lyte, the other recipient of the award.
The President has since been trolled by social media users.
