Biden Asks Stunned Audience To Imagine If Obama Had Been Assassinated
Biden was referencing he formative events of his early days in the political field
Former Vice President and 2020 frontrunner, Joe Biden, took a bizarre turn Friday when he asked his audience to imagine what would have happened to America “if, God forbid, Barack Obama had been assassinated.”
Biden was referencing he formative events of his early days in the political field, with the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy.
Surprisingly, Biden did not make any blunders with dates.
“My senior semester, they were both shot and killed,” Biden said.
“Imagine what would have happened if, God forbid, if Barack Obama had been assassinated after becoming the de facto nominee. What would’ve happened in America?”
Biden brought up RFK and MLK at another event, before appearing confused about the dates of their assassinations “in the ’70s, late ’70s,” at an event in Urbandale, Iowa.
Biden's brain neurosurgeon insisted last week he has not suffered brain damage and is in good health, despite mounting concerns about his mental condition.

Biden, as he often does, talking about how his political heroes - RFK, MLK - were assassinated when he was in college. Then posits, rather starkly: imagine what would have happened if Barack Obama was assassinated— Mike Memoli (@mikememoli) August 23, 2019
Dr. Neal Kassell said that Biden ‘is every bit as sharp as he was 31-years-ago,’ insisting he has not seen ‘any change’ in his patient over the last 20 years, according to Politico.
Biden was previously treated for two brain aneurysms in 1988.
‘I can tell you with absolute certainty that he had no brain damage, either from the hemorrhage or from the operations that he had,’ Kassell said.
‘There was no damage whatsoever.’
Ever since Biden launched his White House bid in April, concerns over his mental acuity came into question.
Lat week Neon Nettle reported Obama told his former Vice President Joe Biden he didn't "have to" run for president in 2020, according to a report from The New York Times.
The former president reportedly told Biden, “You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t."
