Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden appeared to confuse President Donald Trump with former President George W. Bush during in an interview at a virtual event Sunday. 

Biden supporters are backing him on Twitter after his mistake, saying it wasn’t a mistake at all. The virtual event, “I Will Vote,” was hosted by George Lopez, which is why Biden said “George,” according to his supporters. 

Biden says in the interview, “And the character of the country in my view is literally on the ballot. What kind of country we’re going to be. Four more years of George, uh, George, we’re going to find ourselves in a position where if Trump gets re-elected we’re going to be in a different world.”

Individuals on both sides of the parties went straight to Twitter to talk about Biden’s mixup. This isn’t the first time he has misspoken, and some Americans are concerned about his mental ability to run the country.

One Twitter user stated, “Biden can’t do one interview without misspeaking…I sure don’t want him talking to foreign countries for us.”

Edward Hardy, a host of the progressive political podcast, The Hardy Show, came back and said, “More fake news from the Trump campaign. Joe Biden was clearly speaking to George Lopez, who was hosting the fundraiser.”

Many responses to this tweet made it seem as though the people of America weren’t buying that excuse. When President Trump took his opinion to Twitter, it was a different story. 

President Trump said, “Joe Biden called me George yesterday. Couldn’t remember my name. Got some help from the anchor to get him through the interview. The Fake News Cartel is working overtime to cover it up.”

Trump's tweet was met by many responses calling him out for his misspeaking episodes like Tom Apple, Rick Gates, Melanie and Steve McCarthy. 

Only Biden knows what he really meant by “George” in his interview.
