President Joe Biden appeared to forget the name his defense secretary when he was delivering live remarks from the White House on International Women’s Day.
“I want to thank Sec—the former general, I keep calling him general, my, uh, the guy who runs that outfit over there. I want to make sure we thank the Secretary,” Biden said on Monday, March 8.

The name of the secretary of defense is Gen. Lloyd Austin, who gave a speech a moment before Biden in the same event.
During the event, Biden announced his nomination of two female generals for 4-star combatant commands. He wanted to thank Austin for his work in implementing “maternity flight suits.”
Biden said, under his administration, the top priorities of the U.S. military will be tailoring uniforms and body armor to fit female soldiers better and changing hairstyle requirements.
“We’re making good progress designing body armor that fits women properly, tailoring combat uniforms for women, creating maternity flight suits, updating their hairstyle requirements, and some of it is going to take an, uh, you know, an intensity of purpose and mission to really change the culture and habits that cause to leave the military,” Biden said.

The alleged dementia of the incumbent president, who is 78 years old, is raising concerns about his mental health.
Steve Bannon, host of “The War Room,” warned on his recent show that it is time to get ready for the transition from Biden to Vice President Kamala Harris.
Bannon, who served as the White House’s chief strategist in the Trump administration, pointed out that Harris is involved with a large number of meetings though it is not the role of the vice president, and that may signal an impending transition of power.
