Joe Biden is a complete mess.
His run for President continues to be riddled by scandal after scandal.
And Joe Biden will never live down the insane thing he just did.
Despite leading most polls, Joe Biden is in serious trouble.
As the field of Democrat candidates continues to narrow, some candidates are getting within striking distance of the former Vice President.
Both Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are getting within just a few points of Biden.
And the one thing that may end up giving Warren and Sanders the advantage is Biden himself.
Biden continues to slip up and say crazy things.
The latest of these statements was during a town hall where Biden couldn’t remember Barack Obama’s name.
“They invaded another country and annexed a significant portion of it, called Crimea,” Biden said in response, adding, “He’s saying that it was President … my boss … it was his fault.”
This is just one of dozens of gaffes Biden has made.
And he has even misstated Obama’s name before.
In 2012, while Mitt Romney was running for President, Biden referenced an attack ad from the Romney campaign, mistaking President Obama for President Clinton.
He says that the ad claims that “President Clinton bankrupted Chrysler so that Italians could buy it to ship jobs overseas to China,” when in reality the ad made that claim about Obama.
Since announcing his presidential campaign, he has made dozens of crazy statements.
Recently he forgot what state he was in, asking a New Hampshire crowd “what’s not to like about Vermont?”
He also recently discussed the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., misstating the year of their deaths by a decade.
“Bobby Kennedy and Dr. King had been assassinated in the ’70s, the late ’70s, when I got engaged,” Biden said.
Biden also stated that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids,” mixed up the locations of the recent El Paso and Dayton shootings, stating that they were in “Houston” and “Michigan,” and confused both Theresa May and Angela Merkel with Margaret Thatcher.
And these are just things that he misstated, likely out of old age.
There are also comments he has made that are downright insensitive.
He recently praised segregationist Senators.
And during Obama’s first presidential run, he called then-candidate Obama “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”
He also declared in 2006 that “you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.”
Because of these comments Biden has called himself the “gaffe machine” in an attempt to put humor on his statements.
But most aren’t laughing, and some believe the term “gaffe machine” is an understatement, with the Washington Post calling him the “Lamborghini of gaffes.”
Having an occasional mix-up during long days on the campaign trail is par for the course.
But Biden consistently finds himself forgetting important facts and making very obvious mistakes while speaking.
If this continues, and it appears that Biden can’t stop himself, it will likely be the end of his campaign.
