Joe Biden is trying to ingratiate himself to voters in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. During his latest virtual round table, he made a claim that is sure to raise a few eyebrows. Of course, there were also a host of technical issues and glitches. Biden’s signature mental gaffes also marred the broadcast.
It took him 20 whole seconds to actually remember who he is receiving his coronavirus briefings from. From there, things got even worse. Biden managed to confuse the number of Americans who have passed away from the coronavirus with the number of Americans who are unemployed. It’s a pretty big mistake to make but that is Joe Biden for you.
85,000 Americans have died as a result of the coronavirus but Biden thinks that this is the number of people who have lost their jobs. Meanwhile, there are over 30 million Americans who have been forced to file for unemployment and Biden seems to have his wires crossed. He’s talking about millions of people dying but that is not the case.
While the COVID-19 outbreak has caused untold disruptions to civil life, we are not at the point where we have had to bury a million people. Hopefully, we never get there. Biden’s struggles with public speaking only underscore the foolishness of the Democratic party.
We are not here to praise Bernie Sanders by any stretch of the imagination. The last thing that this nation needed was a socialist president who was looking to push everything further to the left. On the other hand, the Democrats might have wanted to choose a candidate that would be able to string a few sentences together without experiencing any mental lapses.
It’s an interesting quandary. This is the second election in a row that has been swung away from Sanders when it looked like he was starting to build a groundswell of support. Instead of allowing their race to run its natural course, the Democrats elected to put their thumb on the scale. Name recognition means a lot to them and there has been a lot of chatter about “elect-ability”.
Sure, Biden has the name value that any party would want in a candidate. How much is that name value worth when he is clearly past his mental prime, though? We are not sure what the plan is here. Do they plan to install Obama as a behind the scenes president if Biden wins?
A puppet regime is exactly what the Democrats would want but things are not looking good. Watching Biden bumble and fumble around is not going to inspire much confidence in their voter base. No one is going to want to risk their life to head to the polls, especially in support of a candidate that is this long in the tooth.

The “can you believe Joe Biden actually said that?” game is a lot of fun, though. When you are not on the left side of the aisle, these clips provide a great deal of hilarity. Once you have had a chance to watch this clip, you are definitely going to appreciate it.
The best part of all is that he is providing all of this hysterical content without actually being on the campaign trail. We cannot begin to imagine how many more gaffes he would have given us by now if he was able to campaign in a more conventional manner.
In a bizarre way, the pandemic has provided Biden with an opportunity to stay indoors and avoid the embarrassment that he would normally feel. We cannot begin to imagine how many gaffes would have taken place if he was going to rallies and speaking to the general public on an everyday basis.
No wonder Barack Obama is getting more closely involved with the Biden campaign. He knows deep down that Biden does not have a real chance to win unless he is willing to wield his influence. At this point, we have serious doubts as to whether he can even help Biden to overcome all of the slip ups he’s already had.
We are sure that President Trump is putting together a highlight reel that will be used for one of his campaign ads. The debates between this one are going to be sidesplitting. It won’t take Trump long to start mocking Biden’s mental deficiencies. We are old enough to remember when people were actually doctoring videos to make Biden look bad. It’s not like he needs the help! Hopefully, he is able to avoid any more major mistakes but we wouldn’t bet on it.
