Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden remains the leader in the polls to face off against President Donald Trump in 2020, even as he struggles with vocalizing lucid thoughts on the campaign trail.
Biden’s most recent embarrassing lapse came during an appearance at an LGBTQ forum in Cedar Rapids, IA. He appeared to endorse allowing convicted criminals to determine their sex behind bars, which would potentially allow rapists and other sexual predators to have intimate access to vulnerable women behind bars.
“In prison the determination should be that your sexual identity is defined by what you say it is not what in fact the prison says it is,” a rambling Biden said to tepid applause from the LGBT audience.
Biden continued on with some unintelligible gibberish while the moderator looked on with shock and pity.

In addition to criticism he is receiving for this outburst, the far left is hammering Biden for other insensitive remarks that he made at the conference as well.
Biden was accused of sexism after he made condescending comments toward the female moderator when she pressed him on kind words once he made about Vice President Mike Pence, who is a bogeyman to the LGBT community for his support of traditional marriage.
“You’re a lovely person,” Biden tells the moderator to laugher.

Despite his many faux pas, Biden continues to advertise his record as a champion of gay rights. Biden claims he “didn’t have to evolve” on the issue and has been a pioneer of promoting the homosexual agenda legislatively throughout his career, even though he once supported “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policies for the military.
“I’ve been a strong, strong advocate,” Biden said at the forum. “My son Beau — the one who is deceased — set up the Beau Biden foundation to deal with children who are abused and gay and lesbian children and transgender children. He passed the first transgender (rights) law in Delaware, as attorney general, to make sure there was in fact no discrimination and so on. I am very proud of my record.”
Biden’s confidence does not seem to be daunted, so much so, in fact, that he does not even see the need to make the case for himself to be President to undecided and skeptical voters.
File this in the 'why is Biden even running for president?' drawer.

If Biden is ultimately the opponent of President Trump in the 2020 presidential campaign, he will have a hard time keeping up this facade during a bitterly contested race.
Iowa Certifies Republican Congressional Candidate as Winner by SIX VOTES
The closest congressional election in decades.
The Iowa State Board of Canvass voted on Monday to certify a Republican congressional candidate as the winner of an election for the state’s 2nd district, with a recount leaving Mariannette Miller-Meeks up on Democrat Rita Hart by a mere six votes.
The final standing result for the election of Iowa’s 2nd congressional district leaves Miller-Meeks with 196,964 votes, and Hart with 196,568 votes. Miller-Meeks’ margin of victory had stood at 47 votes before a mandatory recount, dwindling to a final lead of a half dozen. The election is slated to become the closes congressional race in the United States since 1984, and the closest in Iowa since 1916.
Hart is expected to legally challenge the vote after Monday’s certification. A GOP victory in the Democrat-leaning swing district would be the 14th Republican pickup this year, significantly eroding the Democrat majority in the House of Representatives.
“While the race is extraordinarily close, I am proud to have won this contest and look forward to being certified as the winner,” said Miller-Meeks, an Iowa State Senator representing Ottumwa on Saturday when declaring victory. “It is the honor of a lifetime to be elected to serve the people of eastern and southern Iowa. Iowans are tenacious, optimistic and hardworking, and I will take those same attributes to Washington, D.C., on their behalf.”
The recount process had proven dramatic, with results of Miller-Meeks’ outstanding lead placed in jeopardy when a recount board identified and counted dozens of absentee ballots that weren’t previously accounted for. It’s likely Hart will litigate in hopes of getting county clerks to count additional ballots that had been ruled unlawful.
As the nation demands answers to allegations of pervasive election misconduct and voter fraud, it’s worth noting that only a handful of ballots can overturn the end result of many local, county, and state elections. Let no illegal ballot infiltrate the final count, and let no legal vote go uncounted.
