2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden referred to his running mate California Sen. Kamala Harris’s husband, Doug Emhoff, as “Kamala’s wife.”
“My wife, Jill, as you know and Doug Emhoff, Kamala’s wife were there,” Biden said speaking of Texas on Monday.

The latest series of campaign slip-ups have resurrected fresh concerns over the 77-year-old candidate’s age and ability to command the Oval Office should he be elected next week. If sworn in, Biden, who will be 78 by January would be the oldest president ever to take power.
Biden’s repeated gaffes also help explain the Democratic nominee’s light campaign schedule just days before the November contest. Last week, Biden implemented a 72-hour lid ahead of the second and final presidential debate. This week, Biden’s schedule has remained light, with few events scheduled while Trump continues to aggressively campaign in multiple states each day.
