Watch: Gaffes Pile Up During Bumbling Biden "Virtual Roundtable"

Watch: Gaffes Pile Up During Bumbling Biden "Virtual Roundtable"

Presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden continues to struggle through media appearances where he consistently has trouble communicating basic stances and policies, or even articulating coherent sentences for that matter, teleprompter or not.

Of course, as we’ve highlighted multiple times things get drastically worse any time he has to field questions not specifically scripted, making it deeply awkward for the mainstream media interviewers who seem desperate to prop him up as the only “serious” candidate, not to mention raising serious questions of the sharpness of the 77-year old’s mental faculties.

On Thursday afternoon Biden held a “virtual roundtable” despite what seems a past half-year of his team finding any excuse possible to keep him away from interacting with the public, given the number of times things go horribly wrong into hilarity and embarrassment.

From nearly the beginning of the event, Biden made bizarre and confused tongue-tied claims, saying:

“We’re … in the middle of a pandemic that has cost us more than 85,000 jobs as of today. Lives of millions of people. Millions of people. Millions of jobs. You know, and we’re in a position where, you know we just got new unemployment insurance, this morning, uh, numbers — 36.5 million claims since this crisis began.”

Currently there are a little over 300,000 deaths from COVID-19 globally, and over 85,000 in the United States. It’s hard to know exactly what Biden was trying to say, considering too he references “unemployment insurance… uh, numbers”. 

The Daily Mail describes of his switch-up on the numbers, something he didn’t seem aware he was doing:

And the self-proclaimed ‘gaffe machine’ did little to mitigate those apprehensions during a monologue about soaring unemployment levels on Thursday, in which he wrongly claimed 85,000 jobs have been lost in the US as a result of COVID-19, and millions of Americans have died

The former Vice President appears to have got his numbers confused. In reality, at least 85,000 Americans have died, while  36.5 million have lost their jobs.

Democrats might prefer that their presidential hopeful front-runner be hidden away somewhere until the general election, given that the more he talks the more it’s impossible to ignore what’s clearly not just the usual gaffes and Bidenisms, but which actually raise questions of cognitive capacities and potential senility.

Likely the Dem party bosses simply hope they can put a warm body in the White House after next November while they write the script, but this too could be overreaching given Biden at this point seems to struggle even when reading off a teleprompter.

As for Thursday’s roundtable  in consolation we can say at least there was no “lying dog-faced pony soldier” moment…

  1. Every US Presidential Candidate, should, have to pass a mental Capacity test, Period. BEFORE, being allowed to run for office. IT IS CALLED VETTING !

  2. DEMENTIA JOE AT HIS BEST… HE SHOULD BE A DOOR GREETER AT WALMART… ” WELCOME TO WALMART… WE ARE OUT OF TOILET PAPER… CAN I SNIFF YOU “

    1. Greeters are there at Walmart to make the multitude of thieves who constantly rob the place, to at least think twice. These greeters are upright people who have already put in there due to society at a past job and now are just trying to support themselves to supplement their retiree income. All are upstanding citizens. Do not belittle them. They work for the number one retailer in the world.

  3. the real reason demoncrats don’t want their primaries to proceed is because they want to deny biden a majority of delegates on the first ballot. then the party “elites” can pick the nominee of their own choice, and it would not be biden or bernie.

  4. Please disregard the firefighters holding up signs for Biden. The vast majority of firefighters are voting for Trump. This is an example of the minority in charge of our union unethically forcing the majority into a position we don’t agree with. Things will change in the IAFF, but it will take time!

  5. Once Barr exposes the truth, and indictments occure, the November election will reveal Trump accepts second term, and Republicans will win both houses by the largest landslide in history.

  6. If Biden somehow gets elected he will immediately be impeached for Ukraine where audio and video convict him in two minutes. OR; 25th Amendment is invoked to remove a man who is clearly demented. VP options are so bad they eliminate any chance to win.

  7. Imagine if Trump was aloud to do his job with out all the distractions the cry baby left has caused ? We gave obonzo a chance he failed, now you want this idiot in? Biden been in for 40+ years , last 8 in the White House, ” that name will be change next,” what did he and obonzo do about racism?
