The Democratic Party’s elder statesman continues to prove he deserves his title, making another confusing gaffe when speaking in Iowa on Tuesday.
The former Vice President incorrectly claimed that both Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy “had been assassinated in the ’70s — the late ’70s.”
Both men were in fact assassinated in 1968, ten years before Biden seems to remember the deaths occurring.
This isn’t the first time the Democratic frontrunner has seemed forgetful and distracted on the campaign trail.
After an embarrassing series of similar gaffes, Biden campaign staff are said to be limiting the 76-year old’s public appearances. It’s unusual for a major Presidential candidate to run a light schedule, let alone one competing and even winning a major party’s presidential nomination, but Biden is essentially running three-quarters of a presidential campaign at the most.
The series of mix-ups and slightly embarrassing mistakes don’t seem to be hurting his campaign’s prospects, if the polls are to be trusted. Biden has consistently led in polling for the Democratic nomination, despite concerns over his sharpness and accusations of lacking any serious policy proposals other than merely opposing Trump.
Biden is also facing criticism from some Democrats for some of his policy stances articulated before his Vice Presidency. The longtime Democratic senator was attacked by California’s Kamala Harris in the second primary debate over Biden’s opposition to school busing as Delaware’s U.S Senator. Others point out Biden’s support for “tough-on-crime” sentencing legislation in the 1990’s.
It is frankly surprising that Biden maintains a consistent and enduring lead in the polls. He’s a Democrat of yesterday, who lacks literally any innovative or new policy proposals. When asked what he wanted his first major accomplishment as President to be, the elder statesman strangely and nonsensically replied with “defeating Donald Trump.” Were he to become President, Trump would hypothetically already be defeated.
Yet Biden continues to pull in hefty leads in national polls, indicating that Democrats intend to nominate a 20th-century conventional establishment career politician in the 2020 election.
Obama Reportedly Said Pete Buttigieg Too ‘Gay’ and ‘Short’ to be President
Tell it like it is, Barack!
Former president Barack Hussein Obama reportedly said that former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg was too “gay” and too “short” to be a serious presidential contender during the midst of the 2020 presidential race.
Buttigieg, who ran for president in 2020 and surprisingly won the Iowa caucus, is now the Transportation Secretary under President-imposed Joe Biden. He is considered a rising star in the Democrat Party due to his homosexual lifestyle, which includes being gay married to a husband, but Obama is apparently a doubter.
Obama reportedly made his remarks while addressing a group of black Democrat donors in Oct. 2019 as he was attempting to exert his influence over the process. The revelation comes from a new book authored by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and NBC’s Jonathan Allen titled, Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency.
At the time, Obama was apparently supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for president. The excerpt from the book, which includes various pot shots made by Obama toward Buttigieg, reads as follows:
When he was asked to return to the original question on his advice, Obama said he liked Buttigieg, a rising talent who’d worked on his own campaign. But despite his affinity for the South Bend mayor, he rattled off a list of reasons why Buttigieg couldn’t win.
“He’s thirty- eight,” Obama said, pausing for dramatic effect, “but he looks thirty.” The audience laughed. Obama was on a roll, using the tone of light ridicule he some-times pointed at himself — ” big ears” and “a funny name,” he’d said so many times before. Now, it was directed at Buttigieg. “He’s the mayor of a small town,” the former president continued. “He’s gay,” Obama said, “and he’s short.” More laughter.
Only months earlier, Buttigieg had sat in Obama’s postpresidential office in Washington seeking counsel on how to maintain equanimity in the face of homophobia on the campaign trail. Now, behind his back, Obama was riffing on him to some of the wealthiest Black men in America at a time when Buttigieg had been dubbed “Mayo Pete” by critics who believed he couldn’t connect with African American voters.
It goes without saying that any conservative who made similar remarks would be pilloried by the fake news media. Obama will get a pass, although the comments may make the former president’s relationship with the former mayor strained as Buttigieg climbs up the political ladder undeservedly due solely to identity politics.
