“We have to make sure that we are in a position that we are, well let me go to the second thing. I’ve spoke enough on that,” Biden said.

However, this wasn’t the only gaffe Biden made in his first public appearance in over a week. The former vice president also referred to Republican Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker as “Charlie Parker,” when praising state governors for their response to the pandemic.
“We could put politics aside and meet the moment like governors all across this nation are doing,” Biden said. “Governor Mike DeWine in Ohio, Governor Larry Hogan in Maryland, Governor Charlie Parker in Massachusetts, Gavin Newsom in California, Jay Inslee in Washington, hard hit, Gretchen Whitmer in Michigan.”
