The brother of late Representative Jackie Walorski was graceful toward President Joe Biden after the Commander in Chief erroneously called out for her at a speech in Washington Wednesday. 

Keith Walorski said that he was not angry at the president and added that he spoke with Biden after Walorski was killed in a car crash on August 3, 2022. 

Walorski told the New York Post Biden is 'doing the best he can do with what he's got right now' and he feels sorry for the president, adding that it's 'par for the course' for the 79-year-old Biden. 

He did acknowledge, however, that 'a nice way of putting it' is that Biden is forgetful, due to his age. Walorski added, 'I don't think anybody would look at the things that he's done and said and say that his mind is as sharp as it used to be.' 

Walorski noted that Biden was 'very sincere' when he called the family after his sister was killed, noting that Biden himself has been through that process.

Keith Walorski said that he was not angry at the president and added that he spoke with Biden after Walorski (pictured in Washington with her husband) was killed in a car crash on August 3, 2022.

'All I'm saying right now about the president is bless his heart for trying. Yeah, it was a big mess-up today. Inexcusable? No. Unforgivable? No. I'm not gonna hold it against him. I just feel sorry for him.'

Biden asked the crowd gathered for the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health in Washington, D.C. where Walorski was located as he thanked lawmakers for their work on a plan to end hunger in the U.S. by 2030.

He interrupted his own remarks to ask: 'Jackie, are you here?'

'Where's Jackie? She must not be here,' Biden concluded. It came after he also praised Senators Mike Braun, a Republican, and Cory Booker, a Democrat, on the bipartisan initiative.

The White House launched a confusing and nonsensical explanation for why President Joe Biden was looking for late Representative Jackie Walorski during an event after she was killed in a car crash in Indiana last month – and claimed she was 'at top of mind.'

The briefing room devolved into shouts as Biden's Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre sent reporters into a tizzy during Wednesday's briefing when she repeatedly suggested that the president did not forget Walorski was dead when calling out for her during his remarks earlier in the day.

Jean-Pierre insisted that it's 'not unusual' for people to say the names of deceased individuals when they are 'at top of mind,' a phrase she continued to repeat throughout her briefing Wednesday during questions from multiple outlets including CNN, CBS and The Washington Post. 

'I don't find that confusing,' she said when asked if having her at 'top of mind' also means that the president thinks Walorski is living and in the room.

'I mean I think many people can speak to sometimes when you have people top of mind, they are top of mind,' she said.

The reporter got snarky with Jean-Pierre, looking for an answer by saying: 'I have John Lennon top of mind just about every day but I'm not looking around for him.'

'When you sign a bill for John Lennon as president then we can have this conversation,' she said, launching the briefing room into confusion and shouting over each other.

The botched excuse ended up garnering even more negative attention than the initial remarks from Biden. 

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's Press Secretary Doug Adres seemed exacerbated with the way Jean-Pierre handled the gaffe, tweeting: 'just admit he misspoke!! good grief'. 

A spokesperson for Texas Senator Ted Cruz said the day will go down in history as the first time members of the press recognized Biden is mentally unfit.

'Remember where you where on September 28,2022,' Steve Guest tweeted. 'It's the day it finally became ok for the White House Press pool to acknowledge that Joe Biden is senile.'

Walorski's family plans to meet with Biden at a White House on Friday, another reason that Jean-Pierre claims she was on the president's mind during the event.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre repeatedly said that Joe Biden was only calling out for late Representative Jackie Walorski on Wednesday because she was 'at top of mind' 

'I think the American people out there who, you know, watch the briefing from time to time, maybe at this moment , will understand when someone is at top of mind,' Jean-Pierre said.

'I don't think it's all that unusual to have someone top of mind, especially as there's a big event – two big events – today and also Friday that is going to occur,' she said. 'And so he is going to see her family, they're going to honor her, they're going to celebrate her.'

The White House was scheduled to play a video tribute to Walorski during the event.

Walorski, who was 58 at the time of her death, was among the four people killed in a head-on collision on August 3, 2022 when returning from a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Claypool, Indiana. 

The other deceased were the driver of the other vehicle as well as two staffers in the lawmaker's office, communications director, Emma Thomson, 28, and her district director, Zachery Potts, 27. 

Biden released a statement on her passing at the time and announced that White House flags would fly at half-staff in her honor.

Jean-Pierre said that the comments needed to be taken into context so they made more sense, rather than admitting Biden made a mistake by forgetting Walorski was killed in the crash last month.

After being questioned on the mishap five times during the briefing, reporters began shouting over each other to try and get Jean-Pierre to answer the question more directly and give a more reasonable explanation.

This caused Jean-Pierre to shush and shut down Al Jazeera reporter Kimberly Halkett and call her 'rude.'

'I'm sorry, somebody was yelling over,' Jean-Pierre said when trying to redirect to a reporter asking an unrelated question.

'It is not your turn to speak and you're being rude to your colleagues,' the press secretary shot toward Halkett.

'You're yelling over your colleagues so that is incredibly rude so can you –' Jean-Pierre said as the reporter said she was trying to get an answer to the
