Joe Biden made an embarrassing gaffe during his final pit stop on election day as he introduced his granddaughter Finnegan as his late son Beau Biden, then called her by her cousin Natalie’s name, before finally correctly introducing Natalie as Beau’s daughter to a crowd of supporters in Philadelphia.
‘This is my son, Beau Biden who a lot of you helped elect to the Senate in Delaware,’ he said as he put his arm around Finnegan’s shoulder.
He then continued with the slip-up by calling her Natalie and saying she is Beau’s daughter. Natalie, 16, is Beau’s daughter while Finnegan, 20, is actually the daughter of Biden’s other son Hunter.
‘This is my granddaughter, Natalie,’ Biden continued, before saying: ‘No wait, we got the wrong one.’
He then finally put his arm around Natalie’s shoulder, who was standing close by, and said correctly: ‘This is Natalie, this is Beau’s daughter.’
The latest gaffe from Biden, who suffers from a stutter, came as he addressed a large crowd of supporters in Philadelphia just hours before the polls close.
This marked the second stop on a tour of two cities in Pennsylvania Tuesday as the Democrat makes a final play for the battleground state where pollsters and both political parties feel the White House race could be won or lost.
