Former Vice President Joe Biden had yet another gaffe on the campaign trail on Saturday, in which he stumbled over his words and repeatedly mentioned President Trump’s re-election rather than his own election, as reported by The Daily Caller.
During the speech in Kansas City, Missouri, Biden said that he wanted to “turn this primary from campaign that’s about negative attacks into one about what we’re for, because we cannot reelect, we cannot win this reelection…excuse me, we can only reelect Donald Trump.” The gaffe has only added to speculation about Biden’s decreasing mental health, as well as other health-related questions for the 77-year-old.
Dan Scavino, who runs most of President Trump’s social media, shared the video on Twitter with the caption “Sleepy Joe in St. Louis, Missouri today.” The tweet subsequently drew numerous false claims from the left of deceptive video editing on Scavino’s part, even though the clip in question was entirely unaltered.
Biden was considered the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination before abysmal performances in the first three primary contests in Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada, all of which were dominated by Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). But after a handful of candidates inexplicably dropped out of the race just before Super Tuesday, Biden won a majority of those contests and surged back into frontrunner status. He is now, once again, considered the favorite to win the nomination.
