Biden Botches Assassination Dates of MLK and RFK

Will someone get Joe Biden a history book? Better yet, will someone in the Democratic party get Joe Biden out of the run for the presidency? Once again he botched information about significant events in American history. Now can you imagine him in the Oval Office, as Commander-in-Chief?

While campaigning in Iowa on Tuesday, Biden launched into a word salad recollection of days gone by. In his garbled speech he placed the assassination dates of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy in the wrong decade.

“Just like in my generation, when I got out of school, when Bobby Kennedy and Dr. King had been assassinated in the ’70s, the late ’70s when I got engaged.”

King and Kennedy were murdered in 1968, within a few weeks of each other. And not only did Biden screw up the dates, he also managed to insult women as well.

“Up to that time remember — none of you women would know this, but a couple of men may remember — that was a time, in the early, late 60s and the early 60s and 60s, where it was ‘drop out,’ go to ‘Haight Ashbury,’ ‘don’t get engaged,’ ‘don’t trust anyone over 30.’”

Yeah, well, I’m a woman and I sure know about all those things. Every last one of them, in fact.

Could you imagine Donald Trump saying that about women? You’d hear a litany of how Trump hates women, how Trump disrespects women, blah, blah, blah, from the talking heads at CNN, MSNBC, you name it. But Joe Biden? Ah, it’s just Joe being Joe!

Well, at least he got one major event of his life in the correct decade: Biden did marry Jill Biden in the 1970’s.

Joe has “misremembered” other major events, too. He claimed that the Parkland shooting happened while he was vice president, when, in fact, it happened in 2018, after Biden had left office.

In fact, gaffes like these are making Biden’s staff very, very nervous. So nervous that many are floating the idea of limiting his events on the campaign trail.

But not to worry, says Biden’s brain surgeon. Joe may be turning 77 in November, but he’s “as sharp as he was 31 years ago,” according to Dr. Neal Kassell. Kassell performed surgery on Biden’s brain three decades ago to correct two brain aneurysms.

“I can tell you with absolute certainty that he had no brain damage, either from the hemorrhage or from the operations that he had. There was no damage whatsoever.”

What’s more, Kassell intends to vote for Biden:

“I am going to vote for the candidate who I am absolutely certain has a brain that is functioning. And that narrows it down exactly to one.”

Oh, Joe Biden’s brain is definitely functioning. So are the brains of the idiots who proudly posted images of their credit cards on Twitter. But I wouldn’t want those dimwits anywhere near the White House, and I don’t want Joe Biden occupying it, either.

    So the fact that he did surgery on biden’s Brain in the eighties renders him competent to definitively state its condition now?

    “Yup, I repaired the transmission on that car 12 years ago and I can tell you she’s still purring like a kitten!”

  • Charles N. Steele says:

    Why would you want Biden to drop out? He seems the perfect candidate for today’s Democrat Party: confused, ignorant, and delusional.

    And I think we should fully believe Dr. Kassell’s professional evaluation — Biden’s brain was just as functional (and dysfunctional) 30 years ago.

  • Scott says:

    I agree with Charles, I say we should believe the quote “But not to worry, says Biden’s brain surgeon. Joe may be turning 77 in November, but he’s “as sharp as he was 31 years ago,””… he was a lying, mouth breathing moron 31 years ago, and still is…

  • Wfjag says:

    You act like telling lies is considered a disqualification among the people who will vote in the Democrat Presidential Candidate caucuses and primaries.

    • Scott says:

      No, just came across that way.. I’m convinced that it’s not only NOT a disqualification, but a requirement.

  • Judy Samford says:

    I don’t see a lot of the recent “gaffes” as gaffes, purposeful comments, lies or exaggerations. I see misfiring neurons and pray that he is out of this race sooner than later. It’s downright agony to watch his family and supporters deny reality.

    Clueless Joe. The Gaffeman Cometh.

    “I gotta million of ’em, folks, a million of ’em.” But Jimmy Durante was trying to be a clown, a role he carried off with aplomb. And he had more stage presence than Biden ever will.

    It’s as though the Democrats went looking for Bill The Cat ( and settled for his understudy.
