Biden wishes everyone a ‘Merry Thanksgiving!’

WASHINGTON, DC—President Joe Biden has inadvertently confused the nation by wishing everyone a “Merry Thanksgiving” on Easter Sunday. The gaffe, which occurred during a live televised address, has left many Americans scratching their heads and wondering if the holiday season has come early this year.

“I just want to take a moment to wish all of you a very happy Thanksgiving,” Biden said, looking visibly confused as he glanced at his teleprompter. “I know it’s not the usual time for turkey and stuffing, but I thought we could all use a little extra cheer right now.”

The president’s slip-up was met with a mixture of amusement and bewilderment, as people across the country took to social media to share their reactions.

“Did Biden just wish us a Merry Thanksgiving on Easter Sunday?” one user tweeted. “I’m pretty sure he’s lost track of the days.”

Others were more forgiving, chalking the mix-up up to the stress of the job and the ongoing pandemic.

“I think we can all relate to forgetting what day it is right now,” another user commented. “Give the guy a break.”

In a statement released shortly after the address, the White House clarified that the president had indeed intended to wish everyone a Happy Easter, but had mistakenly read from the wrong teleprompter screen.

“The president regrets the confusion and wishes to extend his sincerest apologies to anyone who was offended or confused by his remarks,” the statement read. “He would like to remind everyone that today is, in fact, Easter Sunday, and he hopes that all Americans can enjoy the holiday with their loved ones.”

Despite the confusion, many took the opportunity to poke fun at the president’s holiday mishap.

“Looks like we’ll be having turkey with our Easter eggs this year,” one Twitter user joked. “Thanks, Biden!”

As the nation continues to navigate the challenges of the pandemic and political landscape, it remains to be seen if Biden’s holiday mix-up will have any lasting impact. For now, it seems that we can all take a moment to laugh at the president’s well-intentioned, if misguided, attempt to spread holiday cheer.
