Just as you couldn’t think things in America and giant-tech couldn’t get any worse, it has done just that.
Open up your iPhone or Apple home devices and ask Siri, “How old is the President?”
Siri will tell you that Kamala Harris was born 56 years ago on Tuesday, October 20th, 1964. Wait…what? Where are the armies of Facebook and Twitter fact-checkers? Last time we checked, President Donald Trump was 74 years old.
This is what it was saying between 10:30 and 11:20 PM ET Sunday night. We documented it and it was documented by others who shared the videos to various social media platforms. By 11:20 PM Eastern Time, Apple corrected the answer to the correct response.

I asked #Siri “How old is the President?” Here below was response at 10:13pm ET. I believe the glitch has since been corrected (I’ve tried it since and gotten proper answers) but rather WIERD nonetheless?! doesn’t help big tech’s narrative #TrishIntel pic.twitter.com/DfzpkTg5RE
