At a recent campaign appearance, former Vice President Joe Biden became confused about where he recently spoke and after stumbling around for a few seconds he finally blurted out, “I’m not going nuts.”
The latest in a long, long string of ongoing gaffes only undermines whispers that Biden is going senile and is not mentally fit to become president.
At the event in New Hampshire, Biden began to talk about his vision for healthcare but suddenly could not remember where he had just spoken on the topic.
“I just spoke at a, at Dartmouth for healthcare at the medical school, er, not, I guess it wasn’t actually on the campus, but people from the medical school were at… er… I want to be clear, I’m not going nuts, I’m not sure whether it was the medical school or where the hell I spoke, but it was on a campus. It was on a campus and a dean was there.”
Biden’s latest gaffe comes only days after mistakenly saying he was in Vermont when he was actually in New Hampshire.
Biden was speaking in Keene, New Hampshire, and was asked about the town he was standing in. But he then noted how great it was to be in Vermont.
“I love this place. Look, what’s not to like about Vermont in terms of the beauty of it? And what a neat town. This is like a scenic, beautiful town. The mayor’s been a good guy. Everybody has been really friendly. I like Keene a lot,” Biden said.
President Donald Trump took a swipe at Biden after a previous gaffe.
“Joe is not playing with a full deck. He made that comment, I said ‘woah,’ ” Trump said earlier after Biden told supporters that “poor kids are “just as talented as white kids” in a line seeming to assume that all white kids are rich and all black kids are poor.
But that wasn’t the worst gaffe this month. On August 10, Biden insisted he was still vice president when the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School happened and that he met the victims and their parents in the White House even though he had been out of office for over a year, already, before the incident occurred.
Sadly, Biden has a long history of lying about where he was and what he was doing during particular historical events.
