Biden Brain Freeze: Would ‘Appoint’ a Senator, Was a ‘Professor’ After White House

Biden looks to be shooting his campaign in the figurative foot.

Joe Biden’s campaign has been struggling as of late, as Bernie Sanders begins to run away with the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

The Vermont Senator is a hard sell for moderates, however, thanks to his belief in democratic socialism.  These centrist voters are still clinging tight to the idea that Biden could come back strong, and use his charm to woo the Midwestern moderates they’ll need to defeat Trump in November.

But the former Vice President is often his own worst enemy, and a pair of flubs this week certainly aren’t helping his cause.

Former Vice President Joe Biden on Friday committed yet another gaffe on the campaign trail, pledging to “appoint” the first black woman to the “Senate,” seemingly forgetting that two black women have served in the upper chamber.

“I’m looking forward to appointing the first African American woman to the United States Senate,” Biden, 77, said in a stump speech in Sumter, South Carolina, prompting cheers from supporters. Biden appeared to ignore that Sen. Carol Moseley Braun (D-IL) served as the first black female senator from 1993 to 1999, while Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) was the second black woman to be elected to the upper chamber in 2017.

Harris and Biden traded blows on the campaign trail and the debate stage just weeks ago.

Biden also stunned with his claim that he went into teaching after leaving the White House.

Biden made the claim Wednesday at a campaign event in Georgetown, South Carolina, saying he “became a teacher, became a professor” rather than “taking a Wall Street job” before his book about his son, Beau, released. The University of Pennsylvania did indeed make Biden the “Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor” in 2017, but neither the school nor Biden expected him to teach any classes, according to comments at the time.

“He will not be teaching classes,” Biden spokesperson Kate Bedingfield said in 2017.

This error is far more palatable than his earlier temper tantrums, one of which ended with Biden calling a town hall attendee ‘a damn liar’.
