Biden Compares Trump To Nazi Leader, Says He's Been In Senate '180 Years' - WATCH
Former vice president seemingly gets confused with teleprompter
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden likened President Donald Trump to an infamous Nazi Party figure during an awkward interview with MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle on Saturday.
The video clip, which has since gone viral, showed the former vice president struggle to make a series of points before remarking he was elected to the U.S. Senate “180 years ago.”
Critics highlighted Biden's new gaffes, which have brought President Trump's opponent's mental health into question once again.
“Well, uh, I’m not sure anybody that hadn’t already made up their mind they’re for Trump [inaudible], but who knows,” Biden told Ruhle.
“But that’s, you know, he’s sort of like Goebbels, you say the lie long enough, keep repeating, repeating, repeating, it becomes common knowledge.”

Biden later seemed to require Ruhle’s help to remember what he was talking about later in the interview.
“For example, the Paycheck Protection Act, you know, one percent of the money’s gone out,” Biden claimed.
“One percent. One percent of the, uh, the—that’s not the Paycheck, the, the, the, um, uh, the, uh, the bill for small, for major, for small businesses—”
“Mainstream lending,” Ruhle interjected.
“Mainstream lending, one percent’s gone out,” Biden proceeded.
Biden later said the name “John” without citing any clear reference, before getting mixed up and changing direction.
“One thing I gotta, we gotta communicate, John, Joh—, look, the whole notion of what’s going on here is we cannot let, have an excuse for him to avoid what needs to be done.”

Biden later stated:
“I got to the Senate 180 years ago."
The Trump War Room later suggested Biden's gaffe was due to him misreading the teleprompter.

Earlier this year, the Trump campaign trolled Biden with an embarrassing video compilation of his blunders.
Twitter later removed the video for a 'copyright violation.'
