It has been reported by two news outlets that Vice President Joe Biden looked bewildered and befuddled following Monday's tree-planting ceremony on the South Lawn of the White House.
The president and first lady planted a tree in honor of White House groundskeeper Dale Haney's 50 years of service, as reported by the New York Post and the Daily Mail.
The Post reports that after the tree planting, President Biden strolled into an adjacent garden before turning around and asking, "Where are we going?"
The article also noted that Biden was heard being directed back to the White House by aides. When he asked for directions, a man steered him in the proper direction.
I wondered, "What if I want to go that way?" The implication was that Biden was asking. And someone said, "You can go that way if you want."
Another worker just told me, "You can do whatever you want."
Biden said, "Yeah, I notice how much freedom I have," as he began to head in the right direction.
The Daily Mail pointed to footage of the incident and remarked that it was the latest in a long line of embarrassing situations for the president.
Almost two months after Indiana Republican Rep. Jackie Walorski was killed in a car accident in her state in August, Biden asked the audience at the White House Conference on Nutrition, Hunger, and Health where she was.
Biden made the mistake while praising the bipartisan efforts of members of Congress, specifically thanking Senator Mike Braun (R-Ind. ), Representative Cory Booker (D-N.J. ), and Representative Jackie Walorski (R-Mich.).
"Jackie, you here?" Biden said. "Where's Jackie? She must not be here."
