• Biden thinks Britney Spears, not Taylor Swift, performed in Brazil
  • An error occurred as Biden pardoned turkeys at the White House
  • The president celebrates his 81st birthday today

Joe Biden confused Taylor Swift and Britney Spears by going off-script while pardoning two turkeys at the White House.

The president, who celebrates his 81st birthday today, also joked about his age, saying he was actually only 60 years old.

He assumed the traditional presidential duty of pardoning turkeys for Thanksgiving, this year sparing a couple named Liberty and Bell.

Biden said the birds had to “overcome tough obstacles and competition” to be with him on the White House lawn.

He continued: “Arguably even harder than getting a ticket for the Renaissance tour…or, or, or…the Britney tour…she’s over there…it’s pretty hot in Brazil right now.” »

The Renaissance Tour was Beyoncé’s world tour that ended last month.

Britney Spears hasn’t toured in several years and is currently not in Brazil.

The president seemed to want to talk about Taylor Swift, who is currently performing a series of shows on her “Eras Tour” in Brazil.

A 23-year-old fan died in extreme temperatures at a Taylor Swift concert in Rio de Janeiro on Friday, leading the superstar to postpone her Saturday night show.

Biden’s gaffe was the latest to attract attention among his age group, with polls showing him losing ground to Republican front-runner Donald Trump among those under 35.

Polls show three-quarters of Americans think Biden is too old to be effective for four more years.

During the turkey pardon, Biden made light of his age.

He said, “By the way, it’s my birthday today…I just want you to know that it’s hard being 60.” »

The president added: “This is the 76th anniversary of this event. I want you to know that I wasn’t there…’

When presented with one of the turkeys to be pardoned, he said, “It’s a big birdman.” I am impressed. I hereby forgive Liberty and Bell. Congratulations birds.

Biden said he wanted to “end on a serious note about why we have Thanksgiving in the first place.”

He said it was “to remind us, and we sometimes forget, how we have so much to be grateful for as a nation.”

“Let us remember that we are fortunate to live in the greatest nation on the planet. »

The president also paid tribute to former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, who died over the weekend.

The turkey pardoning event was held this year on the South Lawn of the White House instead of the Rose Garden.

This marks the unofficial start of the holiday season in Washington.

Steve Lykken, President of the National Turkey Federation, said, “We think this is a great way to kick off the holiday season and a really fun honor. »

The turkeys were driven by road from their Jennie-O Company home in Minnesota, in a black Cadillac Escalade.

On Sunday evening, they were taken to the Willard Intercontinental, a luxury hotel near the White House, and given a suite whose floor had been covered with plastic sheeting.

They checked into a suite there on Saturday after arriving on the red carpet in the US capital following a day-long road trip from Minnesota in a black Cadillac Escalade.

Before their big day, they were played music, including songs by Taylor Swift, to prepare them for the crowds at the White House.

Lykken said: “They listened to all kinds of music to prepare themselves for the crowds and people along the way.

“I can confirm that they are in fact Swifties, and they like the Prince. »
