A new report has revealed that President Joe Biden has committed 148 mistakes and verbal stumbles so far this year, which White House staff have scrambled to fix in official transcripts.

According to a report from the Daily Caller, the 81-year-old president has baffled his words in more than 118 statements, speeches or comments between January 1st and April 24th

The large changes have been made either to keep Biden’s words in line with Democrats’ policy stances or change the meaning entirely. 

The report comes after last week, Biden read from his teleprompter out loud during a speech at the North America’s Building Trades Unions National Legislative Conference, messing up a scripted call for his re-election. 

“Folks, imagine what we can do next,” he told the audience. “Four more years. Pause.”

The original White House transcript initially omitted the “pause” and put “inaudible” in its place before correcting it again.

Additionally, Biden has gone on to say the wrong names or titles for people, places and groups more than 20 times during his speeches, misidentifying the leaders of Egypt, France and Mexico. 

Staffers sometimes have had to edit words to align with Biden’s reasoning for decisions, which includes Supreme Court nominations and when discussing his Vice President Kamala Harris. 

“And look at what these autocrats are doing to limit freedom in their countries.  They’re limiting freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom to assemble, women’s rights, LGB[T]Q rights, people are going to jail, so much more,” a Jan. 5 transcript shows, updating the acronym to reference transgender people.

“I kept my promise to appoint the first Black [woman] Supreme Court justice,” a Feb. 22 campaign reception transcript reads, which was corrected to reflect his choice of Ketanji Brown Jackson. (Two black men, Thurgood Marshall and Clarence Thomas, have previously been appointed to the high court.)

Biden’s exaggeration on numbers has been shown throughout his statements. One example was when he falsely inflated spending by the executive branch or how many Americans were actually vaccinated from COVID-19. 

“We vaccinated the vast bulk of America. We got through that pandemic with less than 200 million — with less than 2 million people being vaccinated when I came to office. Today, 720 [270] million Americans have gotten COVID vaccine,” a Jan. 30 campaign speech transcript shows.

Meanwhile, the population of the United States is approximately 335 million, according to U.S. Census Bureau data. 

When he discussed the January 6th protests at his recent State of the Union Address, Biden said that the White House supports “threats to democracy.”

“We must be honest: The threat to democracy must be defended,” Biden declared. The White House later changed “defended” to “defeated.”

However, some would consider Biden’s blunder of mispronouncing the name of 22-year-old Georgia nursing student Laken Riley, who was killed by a migrant who entered the U.S. illegally during his presidency, according to authorities. 

Biden called her “Lincoln,” but the speech’s transcript still shows it as “Lanken” and corrects it to “Laken.”

The president also recently misspoke about his family’s history, which included his recent suggestion that cannibals ate his uncle during World War II.

“He got shot down in an area where there were a lot of cannibals in New Guinea at the time,” Biden told reporters on April 17 of his mother’s brother, Army Air Corps aviator Ambrose Finnegan. “They never recovered his body.”

However, U.S. military records revealed that the plane crashed on May 14, 1944 into the Pacific Ocean, and Finnegan was not rescued from the wreckage.
