Joe Biden is gunning for Donald Trump.
He thinks he has a chance at unseating the President in November, but first he has to get out of his own way.
And Biden went on Fox News and made one embarrassing blunder.
“Sleepy” Joe Biden finally won his first primary as a presidential candidate.
Biden won in South Carolina by 30 points after terrible performances in Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada.
Biden is viewed by Democrats as the moderate in the field who has the best shot at defeating Trump.
However, Biden is a weak candidate with a figurative glass jaw.
Trump calls Biden “Sleepy” for a reason; he’s made countless mental gaffes that have caused health professionals to question his cognitive function.
Those concerns came around again when Biden recently spoke with Chris Wallace on Fox News.
Biden responded to the moniker “Sleepy Joe” in a way that was truly embarrassing.
“I’m not gonna try to, you know, assign names and insults to the stable genius,” Biden responded. “This is a guy who doesn’t know what he’s doing, he doesn’t know how to run the country, he is making us more unsafe the way he’s responding to the coronavirus. He’s done virtually nothing well that I can see, and so I can hardly wait to debate him on stage. I want people to see me standing next to him and him standing next to me. We’ll see who’s sleepy.”
Biden’s response is laughable on so many fronts.
Trump’s presidency has overseen a record-high stock market, record-low unemployment, and massive gains in the energy sector; the U.S. is now a net exporter in oil.
But that wasn’t even the embarrassing part.
Wallace thanked Biden for coming onto the show, and Biden replied, “All right, Chuck, thank you very much.”
Wallace corrected him on his name, and Biden responded, “Chris! I just did Chris…No, no, I just did Chuck. I tell you what, man, these [interviews] are back to back. I don’t know how you do it early in the morning, too.”
If you’re trying to dispel notions that you’re sleepy and out of it, confusing Chris and Chuck on two completely different networks and complaining about an interview being too early in the morning isn’t the best way to go about it.
But this is just the latest Biden blunder.
On multiple occasions, he’s confused British Prime Ministers Theresa May and Margaret Thatcher, and forgotten which state he was campaigning in.
Biden turns 79 this year, and he’s not quieting skepticism about his advancing age and vitality.
Instead of being sharper in debates and pressers, Biden has become more belligerent, and even challenged one primary voter to a push contest or an IQ test.
If Biden thinks he has a shot at defeating Trump in November, he’s going to have to step up his game in a significant way, and he’s yet to show any signs of that.
