For the entirety of his lengthy political career, Joe Biden has been a bit of a liability in front of a microphone, and not much has changed now that he’s assumed the highest office in the land.
The longtime politician has been prone to embarrassing and frequent gaffes for as long as many of us can remember. In previous roles, these goof-ups were considered mostly harmless, with their increasing frequency seen as a simple matter of age.
But now, with Biden sitting behind the Resolute Desk, there are renewed fears that his verbal violence could affect the way the world eyes the United States.
His latest bizarre soundbite seems to suggest that Biden was the Vice President for 36 years, and that he rode Amtrak to work every day.
President Joe Biden fumbled his words during a Wednesday speech, appearing to say he commuted on Amtrak for 36 years as vice president.
His latest word salad came as Biden delivered an address in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
“I commuted [on Amtrak] every single day for 36 years as vice president of the United States after my wife and daughter were killed, I went home to see my family, never stopped,” Biden said.
The video was a little bit tough to watch:

The linguistic lurching of the Commander in Chief has gotten so unruly of late that his staffers have reportedly begun to abstain from watching any live remarks from Biden, hoping to avoid embarrassment.
