'That fella down under': U.S. President Joe Biden forgets Australian PM's name

U.S. President, while referring to the Australian President said "I want to thank that fella Down Under."

In a humorous incident, U.S. President Joe Biden appeared to forget Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison's name as he called him 'that fella down under'.

During a virtual press conference about a new security partnership, the U.S. President, while referring to the Australian Prime Minister said "I want to thank that fella Down Under. Thank you very much pal. Appreciate it, Mr Prime Minister."

Morrison spoke first at the conference, followed by U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson before Biden had his turn and stumbled on his reference to the Australian premier as he began to speak. #ThatFellaDownUnder then ensued, becoming the top trending hashtag on Australian Twitter.
