Over the weekend, Joe Biden traveled to Cambodia where he attended the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit. In Biden’s remarks at the summit, he mistakenly referred to his host as the Prime Minister of “Colombia” instead of Cambodia. This is not the first time he has publically bungled the country’s name, either.
Biden wasted no time in embarrassing the United States, starting off the summit by saying,
“I want to thank the prime minister for Colombia’s leadership as ASEAN chair.”
Biden then continued speaking, not correcting his blunder or recognizing Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen.
