The White House had to come to the defense of President Joe Biden after he made a mistake during a speech in Ireland. While at the Windsor Bar in Dundalk, the President spoke about a distant relative and an Irish rugby player who he said had beaten the “Black and Tans.” However, he actually meant to refer to the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team.
The Black and Tans were infamous British reserve troops that were deployed against rebels during the Irish War of Independence in 1920.
Some may interpret this mistake as evidence that the President is too pro-Irish, but the White House has clarified that it was simply a slip of the tongue.
