Joe Biden Calls Republican Senator by Her Husband’s Name!

I don’t really understand how something like this happens… but the media and Democrats are just saying that it’s “Joe being Joe” again.

When new Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) stepped forward to be sworn in by the Vice President on Tuesday, he called her by her husband’s name! Now to be fair, Joni Ernst’s husband is named Gail… and so there could be some confusion. But how out of touch does VP Biden have to be to not have heard of Joni Ernst over the last year? She was all over the media for some 6 months before the election, it just doesn’t seem kosher that he wouldn’t know her name.

Here’s what they said

“Gail,” Biden said greeting Senator Ernst.

“I’m Joni,” said the senator, “my husband’s Gail.”
