Okay, I know what you're thinking and no I don't want to make this political. BUT, and this is a big but, I DO want to show you how goofy Joe Biden can be. I have completely given up all hope for American politics so I could give two shits about who you vote for. I mean I could do this same thing for Trump and his adderall fueled twitter rants, but thats on your timeline everyday as it is. Biden might not be stupid, but he's definitely not the smartest American we have to offer, especially considering his age and how it has affected him in recent years. The way I look at it, Biden is like the grandpa that accidentally says racist things sometimes, even though he doesn't mean to be racist at all. I mean the guy was the VP of Americas first black President, so whether or not he was racist in the past, he clearly does not hold any racially charged hate in his heart right now. Anyway, enough of this intro, let's just get right into it.
1. "I am a Gaffe Machine"
Okay at least he knows how to make fun of himself and take responsibility for his gaffes. That's a quality I actually really appreciate in people. Whether he was told to act like this or if this is genuine, is not for me to say but it was a very good PR move nonetheless.
2. "You lying dog-faced pony soldier"
If you haven't seen this video before, you gotta get on twitter more. This is one of the weirdest and funniest things I've ever heard a politician say to a person. The Biden campaign claimed this is a quote from a John Wayne movie but nobody has been able to find the scene they're talking about so I think it's fair to say that Biden gave us two goofs for the price of one.
3. "WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY"
After a little political tussle with Bernie Sanders, Joe got asked why he kept attacking Bernie after he accepted Bernie's apology. The reporter kept asking him the same question but reworded it every time, probably so he didn't sound like a skipping record. After saying "why this, why that" enough times, Biden displayed his dominance and showed him what a real skipping record sounds like. I think we've all had moments like this, maybe your siblings or kids are bugging you with question after question so you just snap a little bit. It's understandable, but I hope he knows that every time he does that he's just giving us more material to goof on him.
4. "Kids used to rub my legs down"
Alright, what the hell. Even for a grandpa talking about his grandkids, this is so weird. I'm not sure if I should be creeped out or dying laughing. Both maybe? Judge for yourself.
5. "We can only re-elect Donald Trump"
This one was a very big goof-up. Even Donald Trump was tweeting about this one. In the video Biden says "we cannot win this re-election," obviously he meant to say that we can't let Trump get re-elected but that didn't stop Trump from tweeting out the video.
Whether or not Biden would make a good president isn't for me to say. Some might say goofs and gaffes are proof that Biden's mental capacity is on a downward trend and I can't really disagree. The only thing I know for sure is that Bidens campaign manager has their work cut out for them if he wants to actually win this thing. Meanwhile I think I'm just gonna sit back and enjoy the show, because if Biden and Trump end up on the debate stage together, it is going to be 100x more entertaining than the 2016 debates.
