Trump Knocks Biden For Making Comments About Forgetting Melania’s Name

Trump Knocks Biden For Making Comments About Forgetting Melania's Name

Former President Trump took to social media Wednesday night to jab President Biden over recent remarks that suggested he forgot his wife’s name.

“The radical left, Democrats are at it again. They’re constantly making up stories about me, because their candidate is a mental and physical basket case,” Trump said in his video message , referring to Biden. “There’s never been anything like it. He’s also the worst president in the history of our country.”

The former president — who is the GOP front-runner in the race for the White House – then slammed Biden’s recent comments during an interview on NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers.” Biden, who is the oldest sitting president in U.S. history, was responding to a question about his age — which has been a constant issue for him and his campaign.

“You got to take a look at the other guy, he’s about as old as I am, but he can’t remember his wife’s name,” Biden, 81, said during the interview. He then argued that what really matters is “how old your ideas are.”

The president’s comments were likely referring to a moment during Trump’s speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) where he referenced Mercedes Schlapp, the wife of CPAC Chair Matt Schlapp and a former aide to Trump, while talking about his wife, Melania Trump. Some on social media and critics suggested he mixed up Schlapp with Melania, per The Associated Press .

Trump claimed that referencing Schlapp had “nothing to do” with his wife.

“He went on a very poorly rated show last night, and he talked about Donald Trump and his wife — I don’t know the name of my wife. He was referring to the fact that at CPAC, we’re at a sold out speech, the biggest audience they’ve had in years, I think maybe ever,” he said in his video message.

“I made the statement that Melania was very popular because when I mentioned her name, the audience went wild. I then looked at the two people, man and wife, Matt and Mercedes Schlapp. And I said, ‘Wow, they really liked the First Lady.’ So this got taken as the fact that I thought Mercedes was the First Lady … has nothing to do with that.”

“These people are really dishonest. They are absolutely something,” he continued. “They have a horrible candidate who’s a horrible president.”
