Confused Joe Biden Thinks Bernie Sanders is the President (WATCH)
2020 frontrunner adds to his series of embarrassing gaffes
Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared to add to his back catalog of blunders during the Democratic presidential debate on Thursday by confusing independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders for the President of the United States.
Biden, who has raised concern amongst his own campaign managers for his growing series of blunders, referred to Sanders as “the president” before quickly calling him by his actual title.
“I hear this large savings, the president— my friend from Vermont says you’re going to give back, got a cut in wages because you got insurance,” Biden said.
“They’re going to give back that money to the employee?”
The 2020 frontrunner has left a trail of gaffes in his campaign trail, raising questions about mental health.
Last month, Biden defended his recent spate of embarrassing blunders by insisting he is "not going nuts."
The former Vice president's neurosurgeon recently stepped in to reassure voters the former vice president had not suffered brain damage.
Biden, 76, attempted to comfort his audience during a campaign rally in New Hampshire on Friday by telling them that he isn't losing it.
"I want to be clear, I’m not going nuts," Biden said.
Biden would be the oldest president in American history if he is elected presdient.
Democratic Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan claimed that Biden is “declining,” and said he had heard similar concerns expressed by voters on the campaign trail.
“I just think Biden is declining,” Ryan said.
"I don’t think he has the energy. You see it almost daily. And I love the guy.”
In August, Biden said he was the vice president in 2018 during the Parkland school shooting, despite leaving office almost two years prior.
Biden claims he was VP and oversaw the attacks at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that took the lives of 17 people in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018.
According to Bloomberg, while speaking to a group of reporters at a pro-gun control forum in Iowa on Saturday, Biden said, “those kids in Parkland came up to see me when I was vice president.”
However, the Parkland shooting took place long after Biden had left office.
