If Joe Biden somehow remains the Democrats’ presumptive 2020 nominee, Donald Trump should go ahead and start planning his victory party.
Biden is a wreck. He can barely conjure an entire sentence without misspeaking, which means that a debate between he and the furiously bombastic President Trump would be an unintelligible and embarrassing debacle for the Democratic Party.
Then, on top of that, he’s facing credible and growing allegations of sexual misconduct that would have certainly fueled calls for his removal were he hailing from the other side of the aisle.
The former Vice President’s latest gaffe-filled appearance on MSNBC has some wondering if it’s not time to replace him on the Democratic ticket.
“Over 600,000 dead, many of them who are those workers, those nurses, doctors, some of them,” he said.
A hot mic picked up a gasp from one of the hosts, but he continued, “Because they have put themselves in the position to save other people’s lives, protect the rest of society.”
“And we talk about that number like 600-plus thousand people,” he said, before host Joe Scarborough interjected, “Sixty.”
“Sixty thousand,” Scarborough said.
“Six— sixty thousand,” Biden responded. “I misp— 60,000.”
It gets worse:
“The pandemic is that the president has no intercourse whatsoever with the rest of the count— uh, the world,” he said.
Earlier this week, he said halted global travel will stifle “economic intercourse.”
In the very same thought, he seemed to forget the name of the Ebola virus.
“We led— Barack Obama led on the corona, I mean, excuse me, in the pandemic that occurred when we were in office. It was kept in Africa,” Biden said.
With only six months remaining until Americans are asked to make a choice at the ballot box, the Democrats will need to make a choice regarding Biden’s viability…and soon.
