As Twitchy reported Tuesday, a lot of people saw the evidence of why President Biden has gone 49 days without a solo press conference, breaking a record that goes back 100 years. During a speech, he seemed to forget the name of his defense secretary, Lloyd Austin, substituting instead “the guy who runs that outfit over there.”

Fact-checking site Snopes.com says it’s neither true nor false that Biden “forgot” Austin’s name, but if Snopes were serious about doing a fact-check, they’d check if Biden forgot the name of the Pentagon as well.
