Biden Gaffe Machine Cranks Up to Eleven
Biden Gaffe Machine Cranks Up to Eleven
It’s clear that Joe Biden has withered under the weight of the 2020 campaign, since he’s produced one gaffe after another. President Trump has been making hay out of Biden’s verbal screw-ups, playing some of the worst examples at recent rallies.
You might think it’s cruel to mock Biden in this way. But you know that “politics ain’t beanbag,” as the old saw goes, so why did Democrats select him as their standard bearer? Why do they think he’s capable of taking on the heavy mantle of the Presidency?
They should be ashamed. And while Trump has been attending enormous rally after rally like an Energizer Bunny on steroids, Joe Biden has spoken at measly car rallies and made gaffe after gaffe.
His most recent blooper: confusing the Philadelphia Eagles logo with that of the Delaware Blue Hens, the mascot of his college days. He said this at a drive-in rally in a church parking lot:
“I know Philadelphia well. I married a Philly girl, by the way, and by the way got my Eagles jacket on.”
Yikes. Around these parts there would be enormous consternation if Trump stumped in Kansas City, MO, bragging that he was wearing a KC Chiefs Super Bowl Championship jacket, but instead was wearing one with a KU Jayhawks patch.
In this video, Joe Biden claims to be wearing a Philadelphia @Eagles jacket.
It’s a Delaware Blue Hens jacket.

It just got worse by the day, didn’t it? Last month Joe claimed that “210 million” people had died of COVID, before correcting the number to 210,000.
Then there was Saturday’s car rally in Flint, MI, where President Obama arrived to shore up Biden’s campaign. Obama gave a warm-up speech as only Obama can, and then announced “my friend, the next president of the United States of America: Joe Biden!”
Then this happened.

After Biden’s speech, Obama signaled to him that it was time to leave the stage. However, Biden then realized he had forgotten his mask. That would be a huge no-no for the guy who is obsessed with mask-wearing.
So Biden — still on stage — searched his folder, his pockets, and the lectern. Finally he found it in one of his pockets. But then he did something really odd: he picked up the mic again, held it to his face, and then laid it down.
What Obama was thinking at this point is anyone’s guess.
I could go on and on about Biden’s bloopers. Like not knowing what state he was in. Or calling a man who challenged him “fat.” Or that time he called a young woman a “lying dog-faced pony soldier” — whatever the hell that is.
I’ve heard many people claim that Joe Biden has some form of dementia, maybe Alzheimer’s. Now I’m not a doctor, but I am a speech pathologist, and I see some alarming expressive language issues in his speech. What’s more, my late mother had Alzheimer’s, and Biden’s language patterns eerily remind me of my mother’s. Her inability to organize sentences was my first clue that there was something seriously wrong with her. But, as the saying goes, “If you’ve seen one case of Alzheimer’s, you’ve seen. . . one case of Alzheimer’s.”
And no, this is not a resurgence of Biden’s old stuttering problems, as some of his supporters have used to excuse his blunders.
Shame on the Democrat party for foisting this man upon the nation. He has no business being anywhere near the White House. Nor should he be dealing with people like Chinese president Xi Jinping, who will chew him up in trade talks. (Not to mention the cozy arrangement between the Chinese and son Hunter, but that’s another story.)
And shame on wifey Jill Biden, who told Jake Tapper that “you can’t even go there” when he had the nerve to question Biden’s gaffe productions.
Apparently the lure of becoming First Lady is more important to “Dr. Jill” than her husband’s well-being. As for the Democrat Party — it’s of utmost importance that they regain power, more than any concern they might have for Joe Biden. After all, he’s actually expendable. Once his mental faculties diminish even further, President Biden will give way to President Kamala Harris. She will usher in the progressive utopia they’ve been dreaming about since the days of Woodrow Wilson.
So spare me the self-righteous posturing about how crass and unpresidential President Trump may be sometimes. At least with him, what you see is what you get. With Joe Biden, the Democrats are trying to pull off one of the biggest con jobs ever foisted upon American voters.
