On Monday (November 20), while giving his turkey pardoning speech ahead of Thanksgiving – which falls on November 23 – President Biden spoke about two turkeys, named Liberty and Bell, sharing that they were pardoned after traveling thousands of miles – meaning they will not be killed and cooked for the typical Thanksgiving dinner.
Biden jokingly likened the turkeys’ “difficult journey” to fans’ struggles to secure passes to Beyoncé‘s latest tour: “You could say it’s harder than getting a ticket to the Renaissance tour”.
The President then confused Britney Spears of Taylor Swift, the latter of whom is currently touring in Brazil, which is facing record-breaking heatwaves that has resulted in the death of one fan this past weekend.
“Britney’s tour – she’s down in… it’s kind of warm in Brazil right now,” Biden said following his remarks on Beyoncé’s tour. See the moment unfold below.
