Obama botches Buffalo mayor’s name at bus tour kickoff

Barack Obama speaking - pointing

While thanking Buffalo’s area representatives during his college affordability bus tour kickoff at the University of Buffalo Thursday morning, President Barack Obama confused the city’s mayor with its Congressional Representative.

Byron William Brown is Buffalo’s mayor’s. Brian Higgins is Buffalo’s Member of Congress.

Obama quickly figured out his mistake after a large number of students hollered at him that Brian Higgins was not their mayor’s name.

Meanwhile, students standing behind Obama on the risers continued to smile and clap, seemingly oblivious to the gaffe. That college education is clearly serving them well.
