Biden has made the mistake of referring Harris as the president in the past too. He had also made many other mistakes while speaking on different occasions.  

The president had mistakenly said that he is going to celebrate his ‘58th’ birthday while it was his ‘79th' on November 20 this year.

During a menorah lighting celebration at White House for Hanukkah, the president appeared to forget Arab–Israeli history as he got confused between 1967 Six-Day War and Yom Kippur War of 1973.  

Not just this, he had also appeared to mistake Syria for Libya at a news conference after G7 summit in the UK some months ago.
