President Biden had a gaffe so bad that even the far-left "Daily Show" host Trevor Noah is making jokes about it.
Noah described it as "awkward" when Biden gave a shoutout to Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN), who died in a car accident just last month.
“After a shaky start to his presidency, Joe Biden has recently gotten some of his groove back,” Noah began. “People are saying that Biden might have a really good shot at winning a second term in office. All he has to do, though, is avoid doing stuff like this!”
From there Noah rolled a clip of Biden asking if the deceased Walorski is around.
“Jackie, are you here? Where’s Jackie?” he asked. “She must not be here."
“No, Joe, what are you doing?!” Noah questioned. “So awkward.”
To make the matters worse, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Biden calling out for a dead Congresswoman was “not an unusual scenario.”
“You all saw, you all watched, which is why you’re asking the question, right? Where he was calling out, again, congressional leaders, a bipartisan leadership that we have seen on this particular issue,” Jean-Pierre said. “And again, he’s going to see her family in just two days, and she was on top of mind.”
Reporter: "The confusing part is why, if she and the family is top of mind, does the president think that she's living and in the room?"
KJP: "I don't find that confusing."

"Top of mind" was the defense Jean-Pierre used. That's completely insane. If Jackie was "top of mind" then he'd be fully aware she's no longer with us.
