Donald Trump - Forgetting Names
After president Joe Biden appeared to forget the name of Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and called him "that fellow Down Under," many Republicans said he was losing his mind.  In response, staffers at Jimmy Kimmel Live assembled a clip show of Donald Trump forgetting people's names.  Trump called Chuck Canterbury, the president of the Fraternal Order of Police, "Ken," He called Apple CEO Tim Cook "Tim Apple," He called National Security Advisor John Bolton "Mike." He called Florida congressman Matt Gaetz "Rick." He called Texas governor Rick Perry "Jim." He called Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu "Betanyahu." And he called his own vice president, Mike Pence, "Mike Pounds."

George W. Bush: Yen for Bloopers
One day during a visit to Japan in February 2002, George W. Bush announced that he had met with Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi and "talked about non-performing loans, the devaluation issue and regulatory reform." White House officials quickly intervened, explaining that Bush had "mis-spoken" and had meant to say "deflation" instead of "devaluation"... The purpose of Bush's visit? To show "support" for Koizumi's economic policies. The effect of Bush's visit?

Ron Atkinson - classic bloopers
Former soccer manager-turned-broadcaster Ron Atkinson was a great admirer of David Ginola. "I would not say that he is the best winger in the Premiership," Atkinson declared during one game, "but there are none better." ["Woodcock would have scored," Atkinson once remarked, "but his shot was too perfect." And on another occasion: "They must go for it now as they have nothing to lose but the match."]

Arthur and Gerald Balfour attend a lecture
"One snowy, stormy night," recalls biographer Blanche Dugdale, "Lord Balfour and his brother Gerald struggled forth on foot with their younger relatives to attend a lecture on some improving subject at the Parish Hall. The brothers were at that time respectively Prime Minister and President of the Board of Trade. The family found itself composing the greater part of the listeners, and the chairman apologized profusely to the lecturer for 'the miserable quality of the audience.'"
