Ol’ Joe Delivers Gaffes Galore

There are gifts that keep on giving, and right now the biggest gift with the prettiest bow is Joe Biden and his gaffes.

Biden has been known to misspeak a time or two, but in the past three weeks, he has made his campaign staffers age three decades and seek medical help after trying to cover for him. They had hoped and prayed that the 2012 Biden claim about Mitt Romney putting black people back in chains if elected president was behind the former vice president.

Sadly, they were mistaken.

In the past month, the 76-year-old Biden has said that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids,” when speaking to the Asian & Latino Coalition PAC. He also incorrectly asserted that he was in office when the Parkland, Fla. shooting occurred in February 2018, despite him being out of office for more than one year at that time. He actually made the claim in two different speeches, which leads one to wonder if his marbles are all in the same spot.

And then a few days ago Biden could not remember the right decade of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. He thought it was the late 1970s, rather than 1968, a tumultuous year when the men were assassinated just months apart.

His timing was also off on knowing the female prime ministers of Britain, as he mixed up the recent prime minister Theresa May with the famous and also deceased Margaret Thatcher, who had not served as prime minister in nearly 30 years. And this, of course, was not the first time he mixed them up.

But Uncle Joe was not done yet. While not a gaffe, Biden did make a weird assertion, which could be interpreted as a threat, if it were not out of his mouth.

“We’re going to make him feel the pain,” Biden said in reference to President Trump at a campaign event in Urbandale, Iowa on Tuesday, Aug. 20.

Meanwhile, over in New Hampshire, Biden’s own wife, Jill Biden, did not provide a ringing endorsement of her husband’s candidacy ahead of him campaigning in the state.

“Your candidate might be better on, I don’t know, health care, than Joe is, but you’ve got to look at who’s going to win this election,” Jill Biden said, according to The Washington Post. “And maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, ‘Okay, I personally like so and so better,’ but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump.”

And this is what it always boils down to on the left side of the aisle: beating Trump.

All of the gaffes, blunders, misspeaks (whatever excuse one makes for the words coming out of Biden’s mouth) are not even the highest concern for Democrat voters, according to some on the “inside.”

“I wish he’d get his mojo back. I know he has it; I just haven’t seen it. Where did that guy go? I’m not seeing him right now,” said Tracy Freese, Democrat Party chairwoman in Grundy County, Iowa.

Mojo may not be the proper term to ascribe to anything involving the “Creepy Uncle Joe” that is Joe Biden. Everyone can agree that his tenure in that realm is not needed by anyone.

Even Vanity Fair  tried to provide some advice to Biden, stating that he should be resting more and not out on the campaign trail where all of the blunders keep happening. In the feature published on Thursday, Aug. 15, author Eric Lutz explained that those in the inner circle are looking at a cutback in campaign stops.

“The proposed schedule reduction would appear to serve two purposes: to give his opponents, both in the primary and potentially in the general election, fewer blunders to capitalize on, and to give him more time to rest ahead of what may be a grueling race for the 76-year-old,” Lutz wrote.

And yet, despite all that has happened in the past month, Biden still sits atop the list for most likely to be the nominee for the Democrats. CNN’s polling has Biden at 29 percent, which is actually up by seven percent compared to the previous June polling.

So with any luck, the fight that Biden is looking for with Trump will happen and more importantly, would provide the audience a few more laughs between the two septuagenarians.
