The president was accompanied by Vice President Kamala Harris when he met the 2020 World Series winners on Friday.

When speaking to the teammates, Biden messed up three-time Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw's name.

"Krenshaw," the president said once, before trying to fix his mistake with "Krayshaw."

The pitcher went along with the president's mistakes, before presenting him and Harris custom jerseys alongside his teammates.

Observant viewers quickly took to social media to point out the 78-year-old's mistake.

"JOE BIDEN DID NOT JUST SAY CLAYTON KRENSHAW," one shocked American wrote.

Another questioned: "Did Biden say Crenshaw instead of Kershaw?" followed by cry-laughing emojis.

Despite dozens of Dodgers being at the Washington DC visit, pitcher Trevor Bauer was not present.

A White House official reportedly said that Bauer would not be present ahead of the Friday afternoon photo opportunity.

Bauer is currently facing an assault investigation, however, he was also not part of the 2020 team when they won the World Series. It is unclear why he was not in the photograph.

Earlier on Friday, Biden snapped at reporters for questioning him about the drawdown of US troops in Afghanistan, telling them he only wanted to "talk about happy things" ahead of July 4th.

The president had been delivering remarks from the White House to celebrate a new report showing the country added 850,000 new jobs in June when he opened up the room for questioning.

He quickly grew impatient while fielding several questions about the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, as the nation teeters on the brink of a civil war.

Calling the plan to bring American troops home "rational", Biden told the gathered journalists: "I want to talk about happy things, man."

Biden's patience ran out after a third reporter asked him about Afghanistan, cutting them off mid-sentence to interject: "I’m not going to answer any more questions about Afghanistan.

"Look it’s the Fourth of July," he continued. "I’m concerned that you guys are asking me questions that I’ll answer next week.”

“This is a holiday weekend, I’m going to celebrate it. Great things happening," he added.

Biden then reeled off that job numbers were increasing, the economy is rebounding, troops are returning home, Covid-19 cases are down, and fans are returning to baseball stadiums.

"I’ll answer all your negative questions… not negative, you’re legitimate questions [next week],” he said, correcting himself.
