( – Former President Donald Trump criticized President Biden on social media, responding to Biden’s comments that seemed to imply he had forgotten his own wife’s name. Trump accused the Democrats of fabricating stories about him due to Biden’s perceived inadequacies, both mentally and physically. He labeled Biden as the most ineffective president the country has ever had.

This exchange was sparked by Biden’s appearance on NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers,” where, when questioned about his age—a recurring topic for him and his campaign—Biden made a remark about someone his age unable to remember his wife’s name, hinting at Trump. Biden emphasized the age of one’s ideas as the more critical factor.

Biden’s statement appeared to reference an incident during Trump’s address at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), where Trump mistakenly mentioned Mercedes Schlapp, CPAC Chair Matt Schlapp’s wife and Trump’s former aide, in a context that seemed to confuse her with his wife, Melania Trump. This led some, including social media users and critics, to suggest Trump had confused the two women, according to The Associated Press.

Trump defended himself in his video message, clarifying that his mention of Schlapp was unrelated to his wife. He recounted how, during his CPAC speech—which he claimed had a record audience—he praised Melania’s popularity, which was met with applause. He interpreted this reaction while looking at Matt and Mercedes Schlapp, which was misconstrued as him mistaking Mercedes for the first lady.

Trump dismissed the allegations as dishonest, framing them as attacks from opponents who he sees as supporting a weak presidential candidate.
