White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre may have said the quiet part out loud when she slipped up and called Barack Obama the president.

Jean-Pierre’s alleged slip of the tongue came as she was making announcements at the top of the briefing, causing a wave of laughter and surprise among the press corps.

“So today, as you all saw just an hour or so ago, President Obama announced that—Pardon me, President Biden!” Jean-Pierre said as reporters shouted surprise. “Whoa! Ahem, that is news. I know, we’re going back not forwards. We’ve gotta go forwards.”
