Donald Trump wants to be president for another 6 years, but according to Joe Biden he's already been in office for 8!
Biden continues to be mocked by his critics for his repeated mix-ups as he fuels concerns about his age. In April 2019, his aides were forced to defend him from reporters after he reportedly slurred his words during his campaign announcement speech
Former Vice President Joe Biden once again reaffirmed his reputation for notorious gaffes on Sunday, November 17, when he said President Donald Trump had been in office for eight years.
"We can handle with a lot of difficulty eight years of Donald Trump," Biden said. "Excuse me, four years of Donald Trump," the 2020 presidential hopeful corrected himself, before making a gesture of the cross over himself and drawing laughs from the audience.
Biden continues to be mocked by his critics for his repeated mix-ups, fueling concerns about his age. In April 2019, his aides were forced to defend him from reporters after he reportedly slurred his words during his campaign announcement speech.
Then, in May, the former vice president had an apparent "Freudian slip" at a fundraiser in Columbia, South Carolina, when he flubbed the name of British Prime Minister Theresa May and called her Margaret Thatcher instead.
"Margaret Thatcher, um, excuse me, Margaret Thatcher — Freudian slip," Biden said, according to a campaign pool report. "But I knew her too." He then corrected himself by saying: "The Prime Minister of Great Britain Theresa May."
During the third Democratic primary debate held in Houston on September 12, Biden accidentally called rival Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders "the president". However, he quickly realized the gaffe and corrected himself saying "my friend", instead.
Biden, who was standing between Sanders and Senator Elizabeth Warren, made the comment while talking about his healthcare policy.
"Everybody says we want an option. The option I'm proposing is Medicare for choice," Biden said. "If you want Medicare, if you lost the job from your employer you automatically can buy into this."
"You don't have... No preexisting condition can stop you from buying in, you get covered, period. And if you notice nobody's yet said how much it's going to cost the taxpayer. I hear there are large savings," he said.
"The president thinks...," Biden continued while gesturing to Sanders on his right. He then quickly corrected himself, saying: "My friend from Vermont thinks that the employer's going to give you back if you negotiate."
