During the visit, Biden rambled about the Truman balcony, telling an incoherent story that truly made no sense. Biden then forgot the name of legendary British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. See a clip of that moment below…

CNN reports on the Prime Minister’s visit…
When United Kingdom Prime Minister Rishi Sunak visits the White House on Thursday, he hopes a shared perspective on Ukraine and a new push for economic partnership can reinforce what has been a steady, if rather business-like, working relationship.
For President Joe Biden and his team, a relatively low-key prime minister whose term has outlasted a wilting head of lettuce – unlike his predecessor’s – is reason enough for celebration.
Stability in 10 Downing Street has allowed for better coordination on Ukraine, according to officials, and helped resolve a festering dispute over Northern Ireland trade rules. Sunak’s pragmatic approach in some ways mirrors Biden’s, even if they hold opposing ideological outlooks.
That makes Thursday’s meeting in the Oval Office – Sunak’s first since taking office – a key moment for the men as they look to deepen their relationship. They will hold talks before holding a news conference in the early afternoon.
The talks come at a turning point in the Russia-Ukraine war, following the collapse of the Nova Kakhovka dam and ahead of a widely expected counteroffensive meant to retake territory. The White House said Ukraine would be “top of mind” in Thursday’s meeting.https://www.cnn.com/2023/06/08/politics/joe-biden-rishi-sunak-visit/index.html
