This isn’t exactly breaking news, but Joe Biden is in a constant state of confusion.
For the entirety of his campaign, Biden has continually made verbal gaffes, been guided by staffers and family, and been protected by the media despite his obvious mental incoherance.
Chalk up another video clip of Biden’s mental decline, as in a recent interview, he appeared to forget what year it was.
While talking about what four more years of a Trump presidency might look like, Biden seemed to confuse Trump with someone named George.
Let’s hope he meant George W Bush and not George Washington…
Biden said: “What kind of country we’re gonna be? Four more years of George, uh, George… gonna find ourselves in a position where if Trump gets elected we’re going to be in a different world.”
Fox News has more on Biden's most recent gaffe:
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden misspoke on Sunday and appeared to begin saying the name of former President George W. Bush rather than President Trump while emphasizing that the 2020 election is important "because who I'm running against."
Biden made the gaffe Sunday at an "I Will Vote Concert" virtual campaign event that featured a number of high-profile Hollywood names including John Legend, Dave Matthews, P!nk, Cher and more.
"Not because I'm running, but because who I'm running against, this is the most consequential election in a long, long, long time," Biden said. "And the character of the country in my view is literally on the ballot. What kind of country we're gonna be? Four more years of George, ah, George... gonna find ourselves in a position where if Trump gets elected we're going to be in a different world."
Republicans, who have taken pains to point out any verbal gaffe from Biden, clipped the video from the campaign event and shared it online. The video was posted to Twitter by the RNC Research account and GOP Rapid Response Director Steve Guest.
Biden has faced questions about his mental acuity but has put in two serviceable debate performances against the president with only one gaffe when he appeared to mishear a question in the final debate from moderator Kristen Welker about whether raising the minimum wage would hurt small businesses, and instead began talking about the need to bail out small businesses.
President Trump responded to Sleepy Joe's confusion at a rally
The New York Post has President Trump's reaction:
President Trump reminded Joe Biden whom he’s running against, mocking the former veep for appearing to confuse him with either former President George W. Bush or his dad, President George H.W. Bush, at a celeb-studded virtual fundraiser Sunday night.
“Joe Biden called me George yesterday. Couldn’t remember my name. Got some help from the anchor to get him through the interview. The Fake News Cartel is working overtime to cover it up!,” Trump said Monday on Twitter.
Later, at a campaign rally in Allentown, Pa., Trump brought up the Biden blunder again.
“Did you see yesterday when he called me George? No, I don’t know if I like George. Not George. What a mess. What a mess. No, he called me George. I don’t know if I should be insulted or happy about it. Sort of insulted. That’s the first time that’s happened to me in a long time,” the president said.
Never Trumpers tried to make the claim that Biden said "George" because he was talking to comedian George Lopez.
Luckily, others on Twitter were there to call out the lies and hypocrisy.
