Joe Biden’s legendary “gaffes” seem to be getting more frequent. Not only did he head into Super Tuesday by forgetting the most famous line of the Declaration of Independence and telling supporters to press on to “Super Thursday” (Democrats: please note that this year’s election has been moved to the secondThursday in November, per Joe Biden), during his victory speech, he mixed up his wife and his sister.
It was especially unfortunate that this happened right after he promised to launch a war on Alzheimer’s disease. Maybe this particular “gaffe” was just a function of lights in his eyes, campaign stress or being distracted by the crowd, but it happens a lot, even in dim light and one-on-one interviews. Some pundits are suggesting that if Biden were elected, most of his duties might be delegated to others, and as we’ve seen from him promising to put “Beto” O’Rourke in charge of gun control, that’s a scary thought, indeed.
As sad as this is, some commentators couldn’t help joking about Biden confusing his wife with his sister. Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit remarked, “This puts Hunter’s behavior in a whole new light.” And comic Steven Crowder tweeted: “BREAKING! Ilhan Omar endorses Joe Biden for President.”
(NOTE to all the liberal “fact-checking” sites: that last tweet was a JOKE. Ilhan Omar didn’t really endorse Biden. It’s premised on the claims that she married her brother to get him a green card. Confusing a sibling with a spouse. See? Sigh… Jokes were so much funnier when you didn’t have to explain them to humorless leftists.)
