"The statement was the latest in a string of gaffes that have plagued Biden on the campaign trail. On Thursday, Biden, 76, told a group of Asian and Hispanic voters that "poor kids are just as bright" as white children."

Moldy Joe also said there are "at least 3 genders." No one really knows what Biden means on any given day, least of all him.

- "at least 3 genders."

Male, female, newt.

Biden's "we choose truth over the facts" is the most revealing. He may not know what post-modernism and epistemic relativism is, but it's the ideology of the Left, frequently heard in phrases like "many truths" or "our truth" or "their truth," etc. Crazy-Cortez said something like it when she claimed it was more important to be morally right than factually correct.

You're an idiot if you think alternative facts are only a lefty thing.

Oh, Joe! Biden blunders pile up
www.axios.com

...Continuing a parade of slips and gaffes, Joe Biden yesterday told reporters in Iowa that he was vice president during the massacre in Parkland, Florida, which happened more than a year after he left office: "Those kids in Parkland came up to see me when I was vice president," Biden said.

Why it matters: Biden called himself a "gaffe machine" 8 months ago, and his slips have long been part of his persona. But he's 76 -- 3 years older than President Trump.

  - Once reporters start looking for slips, they'll find them.

  - And they become a bigger deal than they would be otherwise -- like President Gerald Ford's clumsiness or President George H.W. Bush's goofiness.

Biden allies point out that since he's always been this way, it's not a sign of aging.

  - And the WashPost Fact Checker database counted 10,796 false or misleading claims by President Trump during 869 days in office.

  - As the WashPost's Aaron Blake wrote about Biden's "mounting slip-ups": "This isn't to say Biden's comments are anywhere close to as problematic as what Trump has said."

The bottom line: Trump, who revels in defining an opponent's weakness (see Marco Rubio and the water), asked in a tweet last evening: "Does anybody really believe he is mentally fit to be president?"

- And Trump, who this week said "Toledo" when he meant "Dayton," said on the South Lawn on Friday: "Look, Joe is not playing with a full deck."

- Biden's retort, from December, during a book-tour stop at the University of Montana: "I am a gaffe machine, but my God what a wonderful thing compared to a guy who can't tell the truth."...

It's important for the President to be able to communicate clearly. It's one of the reasons I didn't support Bush, I don't support Trump and it's one of the reasons I'm not supporting Biden

It's a shame that out of both parties there is no voice of reason. Only extremism.

The Obama administration kept old Joe hidden in the attic. But if he gets elected president, who's going to keep hiding him?

So, we all agree.

Biden needs to step out of the running.

Nancy Reagan II?

He and Trump are about the same age.

Most of America would prefer someone who commits gaffes over someone who's already lied over 12,000 times since he was elected.

#14 As a hyperpartisan, you may not know it, but Uncle Joe has done his share of lying dating back to his days in college where he was exposed as a plagarist.

BTW, you do not speak for 'most of America'. At least I don't recall having appointed you as my spokesman.

If nominating Biden has one risk it's that it gives the "right" ammo to equate his occasional gaffes with Trump's constant lies and stupidity. You already see the media falling in line with this. On that basis alone Biden must be stopped.

In other words, no risks can be taken this time around. The candidate must be polished, energetic, engaging, and (apparently) must have never used a private email server.

#17"... must have never used a private email server."

Must not have used a private email server for official business or for storing top secret state correspondence and communications.

Fixed that for you.,

Oh, ok.

"Trump's use of his iPhones to speak with friends allows Chinese and Russian spies to listen in on his calls to get an idea of what types of arguments are successful with the president and who he trusts."

And i hope Jarvanka never runs for president.

"On Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and daughter Ivanka Trump, both advisers to the president, had used either personal email accounts or the messaging application WhatsApp to conduct official business, according to information from the House Oversight Committee."

#19. Was their correspondence on private servers? Are there official guidelines about talking on phones?

Nice try. Keep digging.

#20 Do you even know what WhatsApp is? Do you know that it's an encrypted form of communication that is easily concealed from law enforcement?

Just kidding. You don't know anything.
