Biden has another gaffe: calls COVID-19 the ‘Lujan Virus’

On Friday, former vice president and current Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden held a live conversation with various workers on the frontlines combating COVID-19. During the conversation, Biden made another gaffe, this time claiming President Trump’s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo insists on calling the novel Chinese virus the “Luhan Virus.” 

Biden was trying to say “Wuhan,” which is the province where the deadly Coronavirus spawned. According to recent research, the virus originated from a shrimp vendor in a market in the Wuhan region.

It just so happens there are two elected officials whose last names are phonetically the same as Biden’s “Luhan Virus” gaffe. Those officials include Democrat New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and Democrat U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján (CD-3).

Ironically, Lujan Grisham could be on Biden’s shortlist for vice presidential picks, among other female politicians, such as Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI).
