Afternoon Oopsy: VPOTUS Pool Edition

VPOTUS Biden spoke at the memorial service for former Presidential candidate George McGovern on Thursday afternoon. On pool duty that day was HuffPost’s Jen Bendery. While reporting on Biden’s remarks, Bendery wrote, “Biden suddenly began shouting in the church. ‘Your father gave courage to people who didn’t have the courage to speak up,’ he said, then bringing up McGovern’s failed presidential bid in 1980.”

Turns out, she made an oopsy.  Read more..Bendery sent her final correspondence of the day, which read, “Correction to last pool report: McGovern was the Dem presidential candidate in 1972, not 1980 (duh).”

We give her high marks for humbly calling herself out on flubbing the date.
