Normally, when someone misspeaks you give them the benefit of the doubt. But with former Vice President Joe Biden (76) it’s an every other sentence occurrence. That don’t impress me much. His latest gaffe is causing people to really question whether he’s all there or not. Fox News’ Brit Hume expressed concern on Saturday that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s string of recent gaffes may be a sign of “senility.” Indeed.
Biden is the Democratic anointed one but socialist Bernie Sanders is leading the pack with 21 percent of the left’s support. Biden came in a distant second, with 15 percent. Sanders trails Biden by less than one point in New Hampshire. That’s a very bad sign for Biden.
Biden just keeps on making horrific and embarrassing mistakes. Just this week he called for an audience to imagine the assassination of Barack Obama, he flubbed on healthcare, and now this. Perhaps a designated Democrat should wear a sign in the audience to remind Biden where he is at all times.
This happened in Keen, New Hampshire during a 2020 campaign stop for Biden: “I’ve been here a number of times. The last time I think was all the way back in 2014, but I’ve been here before that,” Biden said while talking to reporters. “I love this place. Look, what’s not to like about Vermont in terms of the beauty of it?” I doubt the good people of New Hampshire were impressed either.
Buck Sexton tweeted: “Serious question, America: when was the last time you forgot what state you were in? Exactly.” Stephen Miller tweeted: “@VisitingAngelsM Come get Grandpa please.” Erick Fernandez tweeted: “All these gaffes are genuinely alarming signs about Joe Biden’s cognitive state.” Ryan Songalia tweeted: “Time for the manager to make a visit to the mound.” And on it went.
Joe Biden doesn’t know what state he is in.

From The Daily Wire:
“Biden’s latest misstatement comes after he other embarrassing remarks this week while in New Hampshire.
“On Friday, Biden said: “If you’re not satisfied, you have another option, high-quality options. The public option will be available in my plan.”
“We’ll make sure it’s not quality,” Biden continued. “We’ll make sure it’s only affordable, quality that’s affordable.”
“Moments later, Biden added, “And for folks in the working class … they will, in fact, will increase their premiums, excuse me, the will increase the generosity of the premium tax credit they now get.”
Serious question, America: when was the last time you forgot what state you were in?

“Also this week, Biden did not know what decade civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated as he then proceeded to question the role the women have had in political activism.
“Last week, Biden claimed that he was Vice President when the Parkland tragedy happened in February 2018, which was over a full year after he left the Obama White House.
“Those remarks by Biden came after he made the following embarrassing statements in Iowa the week prior:
- Referring to Theresa May as “Margaret Thatcher.”
- Claiming about the Democrat Party: “We choose truth over facts.”
- Saying: “Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”

It’s beyond obvious that Biden needs a handler and a teleprompter here. Actually, he needs to retire but if this is what the Democrats want as their candidate, I say have at it. If they choose socialist Bernie Sanders they will lose for sure. Four more years of President Trump is on tap.

Biden has always made gaffes by the bushel, but some his recent ones suggest the kind of memory loss associated with senility. E.G: This one, plus forgetting remembering he was not vp when meeting Parkland students, twice confusing Theresa May with Margaret Thatcher. https://t.co/WpXDd0XVQL
