This is a big gaffe, even for Joe.

While delivering remarks in Red Cliff, Colorado on Wednesday to designate Camp Hale as a national monument, President Joe Biden raised more than a few eyebrows when he claimed his son Beau died in Iraq; he actually died of brain cancer in 2015.

“I say this as a father of a man and won the Bronze Star, the conspicuous service medal, and lost his life in Iraq,” Biden said.

Watch the clip above.

According to Fox News, “Biden said in a 2019 speech that he believes Beau’s ‘exposure to burn pits’ in Iraq ‘in my view, I can’t prove it yet, he came back with stage four glioblastoma. Eighteen months he lived, knowing he was going to die.’”

It’s possible that’s what Joe was referring to, but the optics are still unfortunate considering is string of other recent gaffes, including during recent interviews with CBS and CNN.

Former White House doctor and texas Rep. Ronny Jackson shared his thoughts on Twitter:

“Today Biden said his son lost his life while serving in Iraq, NOT years later due to cancer. If he’s forgotten moments in his life like this, HOW could he have the cognitive ability to lead the country? This has gone too far. Biden needs to take a cognitive exam or RESIGN!”
