Trump Torches Biden for Calling Him ‘George’ During Interview Gaffe
Former vice president's mental capacity comes into question again
President Donald Trump taunted 'Sleepy' Joe Biden for his recent gaffe during an interview where he referred to "George" while discussing the current POTUS.
The former vice president said, "we need to stop four more years of George."
"Four more years of George, uh, George, uh, he, uh,” Biden said, “gonna find ourselves in a position where if Trump gets elected we’re gonna be, we’re gonna be in a different world.”
The Democratic presidential nominee, whose ability to run a country has come under question by even members of his own party, appeared to receive a prompt from his wife Jill when he made the gaffe.
But Biden's gaffe didn't go unnoticed by Trump, who tweeted:
"Joe Biden called me George yesterday. Couldn't remember my name."
"Got some help from the anchor to get him through the interview," Trump added.
"The Fake News Cartel is working overtime to cover it up!"

It was unclear if Biden referred to George W. Bush, president from 2001-09, or perhaps George H.W., who was in office from 1989-93.
The blunder has raised questions about Biden's mental capacity.
Meanwhile, the Trump War Room also weighed on the gaffe.

Earlier, Biden also boasted about having “the most extensive and inclusive VOTER FRAUD organization in the history of American politics."

Justin Clark, the Trump Deputy Campaign Manager, quote retweeted the video, writing:
“People ask why the President fights so hard in court for ballot integrity?"
"Why we have such an extensive Election Day Operations team? This is why.”
President Donald Trump also retweeted the video and later quoted Clark’s tweet, writing:
“What a terrible thing for Biden to say! Rigged Election?”
