Joe Biden has been making plenty of gaffes as of late on the campaign trail. From being accused of saying black kids are not as smart as white kids to saying go to his website Biden3030.com at the latest debate. Now, in a speech in New Hampshire Biden brought up a very awkward scenario.
What if Barack Obama had been assassinated?
My senior semester they were both shot and killed,” Mr. Biden said. “Imagine what would have happened if, God forbid, Barack Obama had been assassinated after becoming the de facto nominee. What would have happened in America?”
I think of where we are at the moment. You know, none of you men are old — women are old enough, but a couple of you guys are old enough to remember. I graduated in 1968. Everybody before me was, drop out, go to Haight-Ashbury, don’t trust anybody over 30, everybody not getting involved. I’m serious, I know no woman will shake their head and acknowledge it, but you guys know what I’m talking about. Right? But then what happened? Dr. Ki— I only have two political heroes. I have one hero who was my dad, but I have two political heroes were Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy. My senior semester they were both shot and killed. Imagine what would have happened if, God forbid, Barack Obama had been assassinated after becoming the de facto nominee. What would have happened in America?New York Times
This was not the only gaffe Biden made in New Hampshire. He also stated that he wanted affordable insurance and not quality insurance.
Joe Biden continues to be an embarrassment for the progressive left wing Democrats. Will they keep on the attack and desperately try to get rid of him the next few debates? Or do they truly believe he is the best chance at beating Trump?
Hillary Clinton ran on Barack Obama’s record and was soundly defeated by Donald Trump. Joe Biden seems to be going in with the same strategy. Biden much like Hillary is being accused of being out of touch.
