VIDEO: President Biden Knows Less Than A 5th Grader

This is so embarrassing.

President Biden’s most recent verbal slip-up occurred on Tuesday when he mistakenly asserted that the Grand Canyon is among the “nine” wonders of the world.

According to Fox, this blunder took place during a speech at the Red Butte Airfield in Arizona, a short distance south of the Grand Canyon. The speech centered on his administration’s climate and conservation initiatives.

Biden remarked, “Folks, it’s not hyperbole to suggest that there is no national treasure — none that is grander than the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon — one of the Earth’s nine wonders, wonders of the world, literally. Think of that. You know, it’s amazing. An enduring symbol of America to the entire world.”

The generally recognized list of world wonders comprises seven sites, and the Grand Canyon does not feature in that enumeration. The specific wonders encompass the Great Wall of China, Mexico’s Chichén Itzá, Jordan’s Petra, Peru’s Machu Picchu, Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer statue, Italy’s Colosseum, and India’s Taj Mahal.

However, CNN compiled a widely accepted index of the seven natural wonders of the world in 1997, which includes the Grand Canyon along with the northern lights (aurora), the Great Barrier Reef, Brazil’s Harbor at Rio de Janeiro, Mexico’s Parícutin, Victoria Falls straddling Zimbabwe and Zambia, and Mount Everest.

Biden attempted to rectify his mistake later on, but his correction was unsuccessful. He mentioned that he intended to say “seven” instead of “nine,” yet he still maintained the Grand Canyon’s position on the list of the world’s seven wonders.

“Upon my initial sighting of the Grand Canyon years ago, during my earlier days as a senator, I stood there gazing outward. A thought emerged—instinctual in nature. I remarked that this must be—indeed, it is akin to God’s cathedral. That’s what struck me. It’s utterly magnificent. In fact, I misspoke by saying nine. It unequivocally belongs to the realm of the seven wonders of the world,” he clarified.
