While on the campaign trail advocating for former Vice President Joe Biden, Minnesota Senator and failed 2020 presidential hopeful Amy Klobuchar committed an embarrassing gaffe when she accidentally revealed to a crowd of Biden supporters that she would be part of the 2020 Democrat presidential ticket.
According to Amanda Golden of NBC News, Klobuchar had somewhat “of a Freudian slip” when the Minnesota Senator said she “couldn’t think of a better way to end my candidacy than join the ticket.”
Golden tweeted, “Bit of a Freudian slip…while stumping for @JoeBiden just now in Grand Rapids, MI @amyklobuchar says she “couldn’t think of a better way to end my candidacy than join the ticket…” to big applause. She quickly corrected to say ‘join the terrific campaign of Joe Biden’”

After making the statement, the crowd applauded Klobuchar. The Minnesota Senator, however, quickly retracted, and changed her comments to clarify that she was joining the “terrific campaign of Joe Biden,” not the Democrats’ presidential ticket.
Klobuchar dropped out of the 2020 right before Super Tuesday, quickly supporting Biden, which probably had an impact on former vice president’s victory in her home state of Minnesota.
Although the Biden campaign has not announced that they have a vice presidential candidate in line, Biden has told reporters before that he wants a woman on the ticket.
This is one election where the Republican incumbent, President Donald Trump, is actually worth re-electing.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
