The Democratic establishment really wants Joe Biden to be their 2020 nominee, and they are pulling out all the stops in order to make it happen. The only issue that Biden doesn’t quite appear up to the task.
The septuagenarian and former Vice President has always been known for his gaffes and accidental mistruths, but in the run-up to the 2020 election these unfortunate mishaps have been absolutely zany.
Several weeks ago, Biden got into a heated tiff with a town hall attendee, calling the man “a damn liar” directly to his face. He then attempted to instigate a push-up contest with another person. Just days ago, the former Vice President called a woman at one of his events a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier”, whatever that means.
Now, with just a few hours left until Super Tuesday, Biden is now misremembering the Declaration of Independence.
The former Vice President attempted to inspire a crowd by orating one of the most famous documents in world history, only to fumble over the words with “you know the thing.”
“We hold these truths to be self-evident,” Mr. Biden, said. “All men and women created … by the — you know — you know the thing.”
The Democrat meant to say something along the lines of, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
The batty Biden is still the Democratic establishment’s clear favorite over the Democratic voters’ preferred candidate, Bernie Sanders of Vermont, with a number of candidates dropping out of the race in the last 48 hours in order to throw their weight behind Biden.
