Who did Joe Biden call a ‘one horse pony’?

Joe Biden made the blunder at a press conference.

He was seemingly attempting to subtly insult a Fox News reporter, Peter Doocy.

The reporter asked Biden if he still believes that reports on Hunter Biden’s emails were Russian disinformation.

The New York Post had published an article about a “smoking gun email” Hunter Biden received from Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to Ukrainian gas company Burisma.

This took place just before the election.

Biden replied yesterday (December 22) to the reporter’s fresh questioning with: “Yes, yes, yes! God love you, man! You are a one horse pony.”

He meant to say ‘one trick pony’ instead presumably.

What is a ‘one trick pony’?

‘One trick pony’ is a common saying in the English language.

It means someone has just one area of expertise or skill, so they only have ‘one trick’.

It’s usually used as a mild insult as it suggests someone has few talents.

What are some of Joe Biden’s famous gaffes?

Joe Biden’s political career has been filled with gaffes.

These are just a few of the most memorable ones.

Calling Trump “George”

Joe often mixes up peoples names, and during the presidential campaign he called Donald Trump “George”, perhaps thinking of George Bush.

He said: “Four more years of George – we’re going to find ourselves in a position where, if Trump gets elected, we’re going to be in a different world.”

Trump was not impressed on hearing the footage.

Joe 30330

Joe accidentally told people to visit a website that didn’t exist as he said: “if you agree with me, go to Joe 30330.”

He actually meant to say it was a text service.

Nonetheless, a rival bought a website in that name (which now belongs to Joe) and hashtags started going viral about the gaffe.

Confusing his wife for his sister

Joe’s wife is called Jill and his sister is Valerie.

With them both standing by him on either side at an event, he once went to take his sister’s hand while saying: “By the way, this is my little sister, Valerie.”

He’d actually grabbed his wife’s hand.

He then declared, “And I’m Jill’s husband,” as he realized his error.

The then-VP follow with, “Oh, no, this is her,” pointing to his sister, to whom he then said, “You’ve switched on me.”
