Self-proclaimed gaffe machine President Joe Biden was in full swing during a recent trip to Ireland, and social media was taking notice.

First, he said his office--the Oval Office--was in the Capitol Building when it is actually in the White House. He corrected himself later.

During a state dinner, Biden told the guests to "lick the world" as he was trying to address cooperation between Ireland and the U.S.

He also confused the All Blacks rugby team with the British Black and Tan security forces unit, which fought the Irish Republican Army 100 years ago.

“He’s a hell of a rugby player, and he beat the hell out of the Black and Tans,” Biden gaffed about Rob Kearney, a player on the All Blacks.

Biden also said he would never go back to the U.S. from Ireland, even though he is the president of the country.
