We agree Joe!
In an odd, gaffe-riddled speech that lasted less than 10 minutes, Joe Biden appeared to endorse none other than… Donald Trump for President!
Speaking to supporters in St. Louis, Missouri, Biden said that “we cannot get — re-elect — we cannot win this re-election — excuse me. We can only re-elect Donald Trump — if, in fact, we get engaged in this circular firing squad here. Gotta be a positive campaign, so join us.”
Though Biden is known to be gaffe-prone, he’s been unusually sloppy on the the campaign trail within the last week.
The unintended endorsement caught the attention of the president himself!
See the only thing Biden has said correctly since he started his campaign below:
Democrats are in panic.
The two frontrunners are not very good choices. One is an open socialist. And the other is an uninspiring candidate whose gaffes and mental lapses only seem to get worse each day.
Furthermore, he doesn't appear to be capable of delivering knockout verbal punches, which is leaving many observers eager to see what a debate with Donald Trump would look like.
Fox News has more details on Biden's campaign appearance and his stuttered statement that appeared to endorse the president:
Joe Biden is racking up endorsements from former rivals and Democratic insiders, but a gaffe-riddled 7-minute speech on Saturday in St. Louis, Missouri, led President Trump to tweet out an edited clip that appears to have the former vice president endorse the current commander in chief.
During the brief address, Biden, 77, declared: "If you want a nominee who will bring this party together, who will run a progressive, positive campaign, and turn, turn this primary from a campaign that's about negative attacks into one that's about what we're for -- because we cannot get -- re-elect -- we cannot win this re-election -- excuse me. We can only re-elect Donald Trump -- if, in fact, we get engaged in this circular firing squad here. Gotta be a positive campaign, so join us."
Biden also bizarrely described himself as an "O'Biden Bama" Democrat, transposing his name and the name of his old boss.
The muddled remarks led to renewed concerns from both Republicans and left-of-center commentators that Biden may be mentally unfit for the presidency. On Twitter, President Trump jokingly took Biden's speech as a mangled endorsement.
"I agree with Joe!" Trump wrote, captioning a video of the address that edited out the second part of Biden's remarks.
Surprisingly, after a strong showing on Super Tuesday, Biden has received endorsements from the likes of Kamala Harris, who absolutely railed against him on the campaign.
If Biden keeps misspeaking like this, he'll need all the endorsements he can get!
This isn't the first time that Biden has raised eyebrows this week.
He appeared to mix up his name with Barack Obama's, referring to himself as "O'Biden Bama."
This was in the same speech where he appeared to make statements supportive of reelecting president Trump.
NY Daily News has more on Biden mixing up his own name:
“To all of Amy’s folks, to all of Pete’s folks, to all of Kamala’s folks... Beto’s folks, I tell you what. What a gigantic difference it’s made. We’re going to unite this party and unite this country," he said, referring to Democratic presidential primary drop-outs Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Sen. Kamala Harris of California and former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
“If you want to nominate a proud Democrat, a lifelong Democrat, an O’Biden Bama Democrat, join us,” he urged.
The twitter account “The Democratic Machine” gave the gaffe a gentle chide.
“A reminder to some people on here that if Joe Biden refers to himself as O’Biden on Tuesday the 17th, it’s officially a reference to St. Patricks Day no matter the context,” it tweeted.
Others posters weren’t so kind.
“Spoke for only 7 minutes and still messed up the speech,” groused a a supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)r.
As the stress of the campaign heats up, many are interested to see how Biden's performance unfolds.
Time will tell!
