On Monday, Joe Biden addressed the International Association of Fire Fighters Legislative Conference.
The IAFF represents hundreds of thousands of firefighters and paramedics.
It was the first major labor group to back Biden’s 2020 presidential bid, according to Bloomberg.
The IAFF stated in 2019:
“Joe Biden is a lot like fire fighters, he is a problem solver who cares deeply about his country and is driven to make it better,” said Harold Schaitberger, General President of the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF), in announcing the union’s endorsement of Vice President Joe Biden in his bid to become the next president of the United States in 2020.
Although many Democrats think Biden should forego a 2024 re-election campaign, his speech to the labor union hints at a 2024 presidential run.
Unsurprisingly, Biden made befuddling comments during his speech.
Biden talked about experiencing headaches when he said they had to take the top of his head off a couple of times to see if he had a brain.
“I was diagnosed with having a anyway they had to take the top of my head off a couple times to see if I had a brain,” Biden said.

You really can’t make this up!
Twitter users reacted to Biden’s comments:
I’m sure it was determined that he did not, in fact, have a brain. https://t.co/ebkcY2N46m

President Joe Biden sought to shore up support from an important labor union whose members enjoy broad appeal across the political spectrum ahead of an expected 2024 reelection bid.
“I promise you, you’ve had my back and I’ll have yours.” said Biden in a speech to the International Association of Fire Fighters’ legislative conference in Washington Monday.
Biden hinted at plans to run for a second term, touting his accomplishments during his first two years in office. “I’m determined to finish the job,” he added.
Firefighters routinely top polls of Americans’ most trusted professions, and the union was a key part of Biden’s labor coalition in the 2020 presidential election. The IAFF was the first major organized labor group to endorse Biden in that campaign, throwing its support behind him just four days after he announced his candidacy in April 2019.
