While speaking to a group of children as part of a White House “take your kid to work day” event on Thursday, President Biden was asked which country he visited last. The president was unable to recall, though a young girl in the crowd managed to remind him before he could remember.
“The last country I’ve traveled, I’m thinking what was the last one I was in. I’ve been to 89, met with 89 heads of state so far. So uh, I’m trying to think where was the last place I was, it’s hard to keep track,” Biden wondered aloud.
After pondering the question for about 15 seconds, a young girl in the crowd shouted “Ireland,” which led to a lightbulb moment for Biden. “Yeah you’re right, Ireland! That’s where it was. How’d ya know that?” Biden said.

The little girl was not the only “take your kid to work day” attendee to fact-check the president. When Biden told the kids that he had five grandchildren, a little girl in the crowd again corrected him.
“I did say five, you’re right,” Biden said. “So let me see, I got one in New York, two in Philadelphia, three, no three because I got one granddaughter who is, I don’t know, you’re confusing me, but they’re all around Wilmington, California, New York and Philadelphia, the cities they live in.”
