WONDERFUL JOE: Did Joe Biden forget Austrlian Prime Minister Scott Morrison's name? Bizarre moment US President thanks 'that fella Down Under... pal'

US President Joe Biden appeared to forget Scott Morrison's name while announcing America and Britain will help Australia build a nuclear-powered submarine fleet.

The prime minister joined Mr Biden and British PM Boris Johnson in a historic three-way press conference to unveil the 'AUKUS' alliance to counter the worrying rise of China in the Pacific.

But Mr Biden seemed lost recalling his Australian PM's name as he thanked the other two leaders who spoke before him.

'Thank you Boris, and I want to thank...' he began, before an awkward pause in which he turned and pointed to the screen with Mr Morrison's smiling face.

'That fella Down Under... Thank you very much pal... Appreciate it Mr Prime Minister,' he continued.


Media commentators were quick to point out the 'awkward' gaffe.

'A very political announcement,' Today show host Karl Stefanovic said after the press conference was aired live.

'But that fella from Down Under, I mean totally awks.'


Nine political editor Chris Uhlmann replied: 'Almost as awkward as the acronym AUKUS, Australia, United Kingdom and United States.'

Americans, Australians, and Britons quickly flocked to social media to have a chuckle at the bizarre moment.

'Just a public speaking tip - if you’re going to mention someone by name WRITE IT DOWN,' one American woman Tweeted.

'How did you not remember the prime minister's name? That was honestly so embarrassing.'

British journalist Graeme Demianyk wrote: 'Biden calls the Australian prime minister "that fella down under" and tosses in a "thank you very much, pal".'

This American Buhari...

It’s obvious the vegetable has dementia.

Americans has made the kind of mistake Nigerians made in 2015 when zombies shouted “anything but Jonathan” only to end up having a terrorist as president.

Biden is no different. The way he has handled Afghanistan and many other things has proven to many Americans that they would have been better off with Trump.

I don't know why Americans keep electing old men into the Oval office. A Nigerian pastor once predicted that Joe Biden would step aside for Harris. That could be a distinct possibility.

Sleepy Joe strikes again

Tensions rising in China, Russia, NK, Afghanistan, Turkey.. all aggressive countries, with hostility towards the US and guess who is the leader of the free world and the US president? Sleepy Joe

God save us all

America will rue the day they booted out the only Man who could command respect and instill fear in any world leader. Such a shame, really

Forgetting one man’s name isn’t the issue here, it’s the consistency of his memory lapses, slurred speeches and deliberate cover up of the ineptitude of the leader of the free world by the leftist media (CNN)

Biden should be in the old people’s home retiring gracefully not leading the charge against terrorism and democracy in the modern world, a sham of leadership, himself and Harris both

Why are people making a fuss outta this? Isn't it a common knowledge that older people forget things quite easily as they age?

Were they expecting his brain or memory to be as sharp as that of a teenager?
Don't be surprised that the majority of Nigerians who are speaking against Biden on this issue are the same ones who want to force Tinubu on us.

But thank God for the political sagacity of the northern politicians; coupled with the grace GEJ carries.
Northern APC politicians would rather retain power come 2023 than give any southerner other than GEJ.
