    Does Biden not use cards to help him remember who he is referring to?

    Biden calls Australian PM 'that fellow down under'

    Biden calls Australian PM 'that fellow down under'

    US President Joe Biden appeared to forget the Australian prime minister's name during a video conference.

    He referred to Scott Morrison as "that fellow down under" after addressing his UK counterpart, Boris Johnson, on first-name terms.

    To be fair, no one really cares what his name is.

    Give Biden a break, expecting him to know other people's names when he doesn't know his own is a very big ask.

    I prefer Biden be shamed for his disrespect towards one of America's closest allies as any president should be.

    Everybody forgets names. Nothing disrespectful about it.

    Not everyone is the president. If remembering names is an issue then be prepared. Someone should call Biden the yankee fellow.

    Presidents are human. All humans forget names. This is tempest in a teapot stuff.

    You'd think Biden would be intimate with this Aussie, considering that bloke as totalitarianism down to a science!

    When you get to his age as I have, you will discover how easy it is to forget things.

    A mentally competent president will suffice.

    Exactly.

    Forgetting names happens.

    I thought be president meant people were held to higher standards. Do we want a president who frequently forgets things he should know or rambles incoherently?

    Yeah, we all forget things, but Biden is taking it to a new, you know, the thing.

    In our lifetime we’ve seen Biden go from the banjo playing kid in Deliverance to Homer Simpson’s father.

    My comment wasn't about his fitness for the job. It was about his age. If you are looking for an opinion, I don't think he is fit for the job.

    They have to remind him 17 times a day what his Wife's name is! But to his defense he never forgets what time pudding is served!!
