Once upon a time, Joe Biden was considered the Democrat frontrunner. The former vice president was supposed to be a shoo-in for the nomination. Some even thought he was the only one to challenge Donald Trump. But now he’s flagging in the polls and might lose the primaries. Watching his chances crumble, the man appears to be breaking down.
Joe Biden doesn’t have the best history communicating. During the Obama administration, he gave the president unending grief with his bizarre, confused gaffes. The media tried to write them off as “senior moments,” or just simple mistakes. But they kept adding up.
They only got worse when he started his campaign for president. We all remember the “smart kids” comment when he compared smart children to “black children.” Ouch. Over the course of his 2020 campaign, he hasn’t done himself any favors with his unusual and hard-to-defend comments.
That might not be the reason he’s falling behind Sanders, Buttigieg, or even Bloomberg. It could be all the negative press that came out of the impeachment scandal. The media tried to brand Trump as some kind of criminal that needed to be remove from office. But it was Joe Biden and his son Hunter, that many Americans questioned.
To date, Biden refuses to give a good answer over their arrangement in Ukraine.
Now, with his campaign near collapse, Biden seems to be coming apart at the seams. In a recent event, he claims his late son was… Attorney General of the United States?
Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden could not remember what his late son Beau Biden did for work during a CNN town hall event on Thursday night, falsely claiming that his son was “Attorney General of the United States.”

Was that a slip of the tongue? Was Joe lying? Or is it he just can’t remember correctly? You know, there is a big difference between a state attorney general and the man who runs the entire Department of Justice.
If that bothered you, this should get you downright nervous. During another moment, Joe Biden effectively said as president, he’d ban all firearms.
Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden made extreme remarks during a CNN town hall event on Thursday night where he called for banning semi-automatic firearms and “clips that have multiple bullets in them,” which would effectively ban nearly all firearms…
“And to get those clips that have multiple bullets in them not for sale, not be able to sell silencers, all those things.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Uh… I’m no gun expert, but I at least know that all clips hold multiple bullets. You won’t find a gun (even a six-shooter) that doesn’t hold “multiple” bullets.
It’s a sad reality that every Democrat running for president wants extreme gun control measures. We thought Bloomberg was the worst. But if Biden means what he says, we could be looking at a man trying to openly destroy the Second Amendment.
Was Joe just confused? Was he stumbling over his words again? Did he mean clips with large capacities? Or was he really suggesting we should ban firearms? This isn’t the first time he’s said this. He’s even said he was unwilling to compromise over this issue with Republicans.
So maybe he is the most extreme anti-Second Amendment candidate. Or, he’s just getting too tired and confused for this race. I’m not sure which is worse.
If we take Biden at his word, we’d have to forgive the many times he makes false claims—about his family, the economy, and everything else. And we’d have to accept the fact that he wants to get rid of “assault weapons” and every type of ammo clip.
That’s pretty bad. I think now I know why he’s really slipping in the polls.
