Joe Biden is confused AGAIN as he messes up story about what part of Oregon voted to secede in front of wealthy donors who just gave $1M
- Biden made a verbal blunder at a fancy fundraiser
- He mixed up a story about Oregon in front of 65 wealthy donors
- They had just given $1 million to Democratic Party
President Joe Biden was muddled and confused again on Tuesday night when he spoke to a group of wealthy Democratic donors and messed up a story about Oregon.
Biden, 80, noted he was watching television on Air Force One on the flight to Las Vegas when he saw a report about a part of Oregon seceding to Idaho.
But he mixed up the part of the state where it’s taking place.
‘I got here on Air Force One. I’m watching and you got Western Oregon deciding they’re going to secede and become part of Idaho,’ he said.
‘What in the hell is going on?’
‘Idaho’s a beautiful state but no I’m serious. They’ve actually moved hard. They’ve passed resolutions in the state to do that,’ he said as his audience laughed.

The news report played on CNN as Biden traveled from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, the last stop of his three-day tour of the West Coast.
But it is actually Eastern Oregon that voted to secede.
Biden’s mistake came in a posh private home in one of Las Vegas most private and wealthy neighborhoods.
The president was speaking to about 65 attendees at a fundraiser that brought in over $1 million for the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Grassroots Victory Fund.
The fundraiser was closed to cameras but print reporters were allowed inside to take notes.
It’s not the first time Biden, who struggled with a stutter as a child, has made a verbal gaffe. He’s often referred to his Vice President Kamala Harris as the president. In September, he called out for Representative Jackie Walorski at an event, when she had died in a car crash the previous month.
Some Democrats have privately raised concerns about Biden’s health. He would 82 if he runs and wins a second term in the White House.
Last month he had his annual physical where his doctor pronounced him healthy and fit to be president.
Biden, on Tuesday, was referring to a move by the Idaho House of Representatives passing a nonbinding resolution calling for formal talks between the Idaho and Oregon legislatures to discuss moving some rural Oregon counties into Idaho.

The bill is also before the Oregon state legislature.
The proposal comes from the Greater Idaho movement, which seeks to include about 13 counties, or 63% of Oregon’s landmass, within Idaho’s borders.
Of the thirteen counties in the proposal, eleven of them so far have voted to move forward discussions about the prospect, and proponents are optimistic they will continue to gain traction.
Supporters of the proposal think eastern Oregon is more politically and culturally aligned with Idaho than Oregon’s larger progressive cities in the western part of the state.
‘People in eastern Oregon have felt like their state-level governance has not heard them, has not paid attention to our concerns, and has not been working for eastern Oregon,’ Greater Idaho Movement spokesperson Matt McCaw told Fox News last month.
Such a move would require the Idaho Legislature, the Oregon Legislature and Congress to all sign off on it.
It would also likely require multiple amendments to the Idaho Constitution and the Oregon constitution.
