Biden’s Forgets Name Of MLK Jr.’s Daughter-In-Law While Singing Happy Birthday
BACK TO HOMEPAGE
- President Biden forgot the name of Martin Luther King Jr.’s daughter-in-law Monday while singing “Happy Birthday” on the federal holiday honoring the late civil rights icon.
- The mortifying moment meant to honor 49-year-old Arndrea Waters King came as the 80-year-old president spoke at an event organized by Al Sharpton’s National Action Network and co-chaired by Martin Luther King III, 65, and his wife.
- Biden’s eyes appeared to search out the woman’s name on his teleprompters midway through the tune in front of hundreds of guests at Washington’s historic Mayflower Hotel. “Happy birthday, dear Valz-dvit,” Biden ultimately uttered.
