Former Vice President Joe Biden will be 78-years-old by the time the election rolls around in November of 2020 so it’s no wonder he gets a little mixed up sometimes. The problem is that this isn’t just some family friend or elderly Uncle Joe. This man is running for president!
He told a group of donors in Columbia, South Carolina on Saturday that “14 heads of state” have contacted him, and “voiced concerns about Trump.” The problem with that is that Bloomberg reports he included Margaret Thatcher in his list of leaders. Did she contact him from the grave? Not only is this really bad form for a former VP but even worse for someone who is trying to be taken seriously in the 2020 election. Would this comment of faux concern have a tinge of sedition in it?
He did correct himself claiming he was actually referring to British Prime Minister Theresa May but the gaffe is out there and is just one more example of Biden’s scattered thinking on the stump (see below).
Biden also went low and called President Trump a “clown” and a “no good S.O.B.”
While Biden claims to be taking the high road when he compares himself to President Trump, it certainly is a low blow to speak of a sitting president like Biden continues to do.
He also pulled out the race card during his South Carolina visit saying that Republicans want to take us back to “Jim Crow”.
The supercut below shows just how scattered Joe really is when he mixes up words and even makes up new ones during his speech to Union workers.
The curious thing is that not one of the many gaffes below was seen on the news.

While Joe tried to get everyone worked up about his campaign, the supporters in the crowd looked just as sleepy as Joe’s slurred words:
