Biden Claimed He Was Still Vice President During 2018 Parkland Shooting
Quote:Joe Biden topped off a weekend full of gaffes by claiming that he was still the vice president when the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting happened.

Speaking at a gun control forum in Des Moines, the ex-veep and Democratic 2020 candidate made the claim that he was still in office during the Parkland massacre. Of course, the shooting happened in 2018, more than a year after the end of Barack Obama’s presidency.

“I met with them and then they went off up on the Hill when I was vice president,” Biden said. Bloomberg reports that Biden made the same mistake later in the day, saying “those kids in Parkland came up to see me when I was vice president” as he talked about congresspeople “basically cowering” away from confrontations.

Biden’s campaign later told reporters that the former vice-president was thinking about the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting when he said those words. It is true, however, that Biden did meet with Parkland survivors after that massacre.

Biden’s remarks follow several other misstatements from him over the last few days. The former vice president raised eyebrows when he said that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids,” and there was also a confusing moment when Biden said in a speech that Americans “choose truth over facts.”

It’s gotten to the point where it’s no longer funny to mock or ridicule him. He is an elderly man with little or no awareness of what’s going on around him. When he speaks, no one expects him to make any kind sense.

Unless his own staff or family stages some kind of intervention beforehand (unlikely), it will be up to the caucus/primary voters in Iowa and New Hampshire to bring down the curtain on this sad little farce.

Trump said Biden wasnt playing with a full deck. Biden responds by saying he was VP during the Parkland shootings.

Biden is still very possibly the least detestable democrat in the presidential field to me.

Sounds like he has a bunch of poor kids who are as smart as white kids running his campaign.

It is getting a little sad.

The idea that it’s now “news” when he doesn’t screw something up... not good.

Maybe he can get his cokehead son to get him a lil pick-me-upper?

This, to me, is undeniably true. He’s about the only one that perhaps wouldn’t strive like the dickens to further screw things up worse than zerO did. That and his clear incompetence would keep him from “achieving” much of anything, and that’d be fine with me as well.

Thing is, I don’t think we need a POTUS that’s sitting alone in a dark room muttering to himself in 18 months either.

But, hey. That’s just me

If any democrat is elected president in 2020, then my fondest hope would be that he/she would accomplish exactly nothing. The best thing about Obama is that he was black (or at least half black). The second best thing about Obama is that he is an egomaniacal, narcissistic, arrogant a-hole who doesn't know how to work with people, so he couldn't even get his own party to go along with his socialistic agenda. Thus it didn't happen.

If Biden loses all his faculties, might make him our best choice for President.

LOL, I’ve been waiting for someone to spot that.

Trump does, indeed, exhibit some Bidenesque qualities from time to time. But it sure seems to me that Joe is a lot farther along down that path than the Don.

Either way, I think Biden’s candidacy is going to sink without a trace before the end of February. As for Trump’s campaign — it’s still on a knife edge. Depends on what happens over the next 12 months.

When you have been in office as long as Joe you tend to forget what year it is.

Which means he's never actually DONE anything in his whole life.
