President Biden in a speech on Wednesday repeatedly stumbled over the views of pro-Trump Republicans, labeling his agenda “mega” rather than the acronym MAGA.
Biden got the word wrong three times during a speech when he stormed into a tax plan introduced last month by Sen. Rick Scott, a Republican from Florida.
Biden said the proposal would raise taxes on 75 million American families, 95% of whom earn less than $100 million a year.
“It’s hard to make this up, but again, it’s the mega agenda,” Biden said.
MAGA, which stands for Trump’s Make America Great Again campaign slogan, has become a staple of America’s political lexicon. It is so popular that Mr. Trump filed a trademark application to own it.
Mr. Biden, in the same speech, again substituted mega for MAGA when berating Republican lawmakers for contributing to the federal debt.

“I don’t want to hear Republicans talk about deficits and their ultra-mega agenda,” he said.
He then mispronounced MAGA for the third time before he knew it.
“As income equality grew to historic levels under Republicans, a mega Republican: MAGA Republicans. I don’t want to mispronounce it: MAGA Republicans,” she said.
Mr. Biden is known for his verbal stumbles.
A day earlier, he mistakenly said that the United States had supplied Russia with Javelin missiles to defend itself while visiting a missile factory in Alabama. He meant Ukraine. He also referred to himself as the first senator from Delaware, when he was referring to the state’s first president.
Biden, who overcame stuttering in his youth, showed a sense of humor about blunders.
“Every once in a while I make a mistake, not like, well, once in a speech,” he said Monday.
