After President Joe Biden called out for a dead Congresswoman, the White House is trying to spin the mistake as evidence that he was thinking of her. From the NY Times:

President Joe Biden on Wednesday mistakenly asked whether the late Rep. Jackie Walorski, who died in a car accident last month, was at a White House event that she helped convene.

Biden made the gaffe as he delivered remarks at the White House Conference on Food, Nutrition, and Health, where he publicly acknowledged elected officials like Walorski, R-Ind., who helped organize the gathering.

At one point Biden asked, “Jackie, are you here? Where’s Jackie?” as he looked out and scanned the audience. He did not correct his remarks.

Walorski, a five-term lawmaker, died in a car crash along with two of her staffers on Aug. 3. She was 58. She had been a co-chair of the House Hunger Caucus, and she was one of four members of Congress who introduced the bipartisan bill that convened Wednesday's White House conference.

There is no good explanation for President Biden's behavior. Either he knows Rep. Walorski is dead and still looked for her in the crowd, or he doesn't know she's dead. If he doesn't know she's dead, then he either forgot or was never told.
