I’m not sure whether former Vice President Joe Biden, 77, has gone senile or is in shock that his son Hunter Biden has gifted him with an illegitimate grandson or both. At the debate last night he stuttered and rambled. Then he made a monstrous gaffe that made the entire audience burst out laughing. He was immediately roasted on social media and on the debate stage as well.
The colossal gaffe was made when Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) was challenging the former vice president on his support in the black community. “I have more people supporting me in the black community that have announced for me, because they know me. They know who I am,” said Biden. “Three former chairs of the black caucus. The only African American woman to ever be elected to the United States Senate. A whole range of people!” he added. Except that wasn’t correct and he was standing right next to Kamala Harris – the second black woman to be elected to the US Senate. She maniacally laughed in response along with everyone else.
“But not only was Biden wrong about there only being one black female Senator, but he was completely ignoring that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), the second black female elected to the Senate, was standing on the debate stage next to him.
“That’s not true!” laughed Booker, laughing.
“Nope. That’s not true,” laughed Harris. “The other one is here!”
“The audience burst out in laughter at Biden’s brazen gaffe. He was also brutally mocked online by both left and right for the mistake…
“MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell called it a “colossal” gaffe and said it was as bad a mistake as Biden could have made on the debate stage.
“However, as awkward as the moment was, Biden was right in claiming he has a monumental lead among all of the presidential candidates in the black community.
“Biden’s campaign didn’t help him much when they prematurely sent out a post-debate email hours before the debate even started.”
Biden claimed the only Black woman elected to the Senate has endorsed him.
Senator Kamala Harris is standing RIGHT THERE.#DemDebate

One wonders just how many times Biden and his campaign staff can screw up and he keeps the lead for the nomination in the Democratic Party for 2020. However, he is still leading and it looks like the Dems may nominate a senile candidate who would be nothing more than entertainment for the masses, an embarrassment to America, and a foreign policy disaster if elected. But never fear… he won’t be elected… Trump will bury him in the upcoming election.
Biden, along with the other candidates on the stage, was asked about the impeachment inquiry into President Trump that has been unfolding over the past week on Capitol Hill. It’s been an utter sham. Unlike the other Democrats, Biden’s response was disjointed and punctuated by a stutter at certain points. The stutter, which Biden has previously discussed overcoming as a child, caught the notice of many on social media. My theory is he has Alzheimer’s.
Biden says he’s endorsed by the only African American woman ever elected to the senate. Kamala Harris on stage laughs maniacally.

This is nothing new for Biden. From Breitbart:
“Since jumping into the presidential race, the 77-year-old former vice president has been known to stammer and slur his words on the campaign trail. Most notably, Biden slurred through his first speech as a candidate in April, often confounding his audience by using words like “baldanny,” among others.
“I want to thank Rich Fritzgerald, the county executive for — the baladanny — the Allegheny County executive for being here,” the former vice president said at the time, before proceeding to stumble over the words dignity, success, and hospitals.”
Biden claims to have been endorsed by the only African-American woman elected to the Senate… while standing feet away from Kamala Harris, an African-American woman elected to the Senate.

As for the gaffe with Harris, it is one of many, many that Biden has had just since declaring his candidacy. When he made his gaffe, the crowd roared with laughter as Harris laughed and raised her arms with disbelief. Not a good sign for Biden.
“I said the first African-American woman — so my point is one of the reasons I was picked to be vice president was because of my relationship, long-standing relationship with the black community,” Biden said. “I was part of that coalition.” The debate moderators mercifully cut to a commercial break. But the damage was done.
Biden forgetting who Kamala Harris is… wow. #DemDebate

And that wasn’t his only gaffe last night. Biden promised to repeatedly ‘keep punching at’ domestic violence if he is elected president. That drew some laughs from the audience as he appeared unaware of the metaphor he was using to describe how he would combat violence against women and sexual harassment. “No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman in anger other than in self-defense, and that rarely ever occurs,” Biden said. “And so we have to just change the culture, period, and keep punching at it, and punching at it, and punching at it.”
Donald Trump Jr. retweeted a post asking: “Is… is Joe Biden senile?” sharing a video of the former vice president’s choppy opening statement during Wednesday night’s Democratic debate, held the same day Biden turned 77. A very good question. The president’s eldest son followed that up with his own take on the video. “Is this real at this point? It’s just embarrassing, he can’t complete a sentence,” Trump said.
Honestly Biden's gaffe that the "only black woman elected to the Senate" supports him when Kamala is standing next to him onstage is just… like…. people, these are not one-off gaffes!! They happen every time he talks!! He is 77 years old!

Biden says he is the most electable of the Democrats and that may be true. It shows what an awful and weak field they have this time around. Just imagine what Biden would do as president and then vote for Trump.

Joe Biden is reduced to nonsensical stammering because he is so overcome with joy at the sudden news that he became a new grandfather today 😘
