Former Vice President Joe Biden joked just days ago that he would need to be extra careful in choosing his own running mate in 2020, on account of his advanced age.
That may have been humorous to Biden and his crew, but his latest blathering miscue has some wondering if there wasn’t a little more truth to the clever quip than ol’ Joe was willing to let on.
Former Vice President Joe Biden made an unfortunate gaffe just days before the critical South Carolina primary, telling voters he’s a Democratic candidate for the “United States Senate.”
Biden was one of several 2020 hopefuls to attend the South Carolina Democrat Party’s First in the South Dinner, where he reportedly received the longest ovation of any of his competitors.
However, wrapping up his remarks, he misspoke about which office he was seeking.
“You’re the ones who sent Barack Obama the presidency. And I have a simple proposition here: I’m here to ask you for your help,” Biden pleaded to Democratic voters. “Where I come from, you don’t go very far unless you ask. My name’s Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United State’s Senate. Look me over. If you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden. Give me a look though, okay?”
Biden’s bizarre behavior has been on display throughout the 2020 campaign, with the former veep at one point shouting at a town hall attendee that he was “a damn liar”.
Just weeks later, Biden referred to another audience member as a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier”.
