I knew Barack Obama was out of touch, but he doesn't know what year it is? Isn't that one of the questions they ask people to determine if they are rational? Obama signed Westminster Abbey's distinguished visitors log with a 2008 date.
But the president seemed to have made a gaffe during the occasion - signing Westminster Abbey's distinguished visitors' book with the wrong year.
Mr Obama dated his entry in the book May 24 2008, rather than the current year.
Apparently Mr Obama was heard to ask the dean what the day's date was - but managed to get the year wrong.
A Westminster Abbey spokeswoman confirmed it was the president who had written the wrong date.
