The gaffe machine is back in action.

According to Fox News, former Vice President Biden was forced to correct himself over the weekend after claiming former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was concerned about Trump. Sounds good, except for the fact that Thatcher passed away in 2013.

Biden claimed he mixed his Prime Ministers and meant to say PM Theresa May.

From Fox News:

According to Bloomberg News, Biden eventually corrected himself, explaining to the donors he meant to say British Prime Minister Theresa May instead of Thatcher, blaming the mix-up on a “Freudian slip.”

Biden’s confusing comments came Saturday during a closed-door fundraiser in Columbia, South Carolina. He listed Thatcher as one of 14 heads of state who he claimed have voiced concerns to him about Trump, the outlet reported.

May has been prime minister since 2016. Thatcher resigned as prime minister in 1990.

During his fundraiser swing in South Carolina, Biden also took a page out of Trump’s playbook on Saturday when asked if he had a nickname for the president. Biden reportedly said he didn’t want to get down in the mud with Trump, but if he had to choose a moniker for the current White House occupant it would be a “clown.”

“There’s so many nicknames I’m inclined to give this guy,” Biden said, according to Politico. “You can just start with clown.”

This is going to be a fun election season.
