Joe Biden on Sunday night seemed to forget who the president was, noting that he was fighting against ‘four more years of George.’
Addressing supporters online, during a virtual concert to drum up enthusiasm, the 77-year-old sat next to his wife Jill.
‘Four more years of George, er, George, er, he – we’re going to find ourselves in a position where, if Trump gets elected, we’re going to be in a different world,’ said Biden.
As he spoke, his wife appeared to remind him, under her breath: ‘Trump’.

Many speculated that he was thinking of George W. Bush, president from 2001-2009.
The moment was seized upon by Trump War Room, a pro-Trump group which claims to ‘punch back 10x harder’.

On social media, people were dismayed.
‘Watch his wife saying Trump under her breath 3 times,’ said one.
Another remarked: ‘The look on Jill’s face was like “come on Joe, get the train back on the tracks…”‘
Yet another said that Biden was showing signs of dementia – an accusation frequently made by Trump himself.
‘Having been charged with the care of a relative with dementia I recognize the actions of Jill,’ said one woman, Karen Gresham.
‘Saying the words he can’t find. Moving him to the place he’s supposed to stand. Guiding his steps when he is unsure of his destination.
‘You don’t have to watch him. Watch her.’
Earlier on Sunday, Biden, in an interview with 60 Minutes, laughed off Trump’s attacks on his mental agility.
‘Hey, the same guy who thought that the 911 attack was a 7-Eleven attack?’ Biden responded.
‘He’s talking about dementia?
‘All I can say to the American people is watch me, is see what I’ve done, is see what I’m going to do. Look at me. Compare our physical and mental acuity.
‘I’m happy to have that comparison.’
