US President Joe Biden.
US President Joe Biden, 80, has been accused of insulting an entire nation. The reason was the words he uttered during a speech to veterans of the US Armed Forces.
Biden greeted the 102-year-old World War II veteran this way: “I may be Irish, but I’m not stupid. I married the daughter of Dominic Giacoppa. So I have a bit of Italian in me, you know?
Among Americans there are many descendants of immigrants from Ireland. They considered Biden’s words an insult.
At the same time, Biden got confused about who and what his name is. He confused the names of his wife Jill’s relatives: Dominic Giacoppa is not Jill’s father, this is her grandfather.
According to journalists, “veterans listened to his speech in stunned silence.”
In November of this year, Joe Biden mistook Ukraine for Iraq, said that his son Bo died in Iraq, although he actually died of brain cancer in the United States.
