President Joe Biden may have had some leftovers from lunch on his face during a meeting with governors Friday at the White House to discuss wildfire prevention.
AP photojournalist Andrew Harnik was able to capture a note handed to the president by one of his staffers that said “Sir, there is something on your chin.”

The Republican National Committee (RNC) later posted video of the moment that followed, which appeared to show Biden wiping his chin with his fingers and then putting them into his mouth.

Joe Biden’s gaffes have gotten a lot of attention throughout his entire political career, including such moments during the 2020 election cycle as appearing to forget the Declaration of Independence, and saying “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids,” and “we choose truth over facts,” among other moments.

The gaffes have continued into Biden’s presidency, such as the time the other G7 world leaders laughed at him when he reminded British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to introduce the president of South Africa after Johnson had already given the introduction.
