It’s a shame that President Trump wasted so much time and effort trying to have Rudy Giuliani find some juicy opposition research on Joe Biden. The former VP is doing a fine hatchet job on himself.
As the gaffe-prone Biden’s campaign continues to self-destruct, he recently told crowds in South Carolina that he was running for “the US Senate.”
His speech at the “First in the South Dinner” earlier this week came ahead of the presidential primary in the state which will be held on Saturday.
A video of Biden’s speech shared widely on social media showed him saying, “My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden.” WTF?
Biden, 77, has made a series of confusing and controversial statements during his presidential campaign that has seen his poll numbers plummet.
Earlier this month, he mistakenly referred to New Hampshire as Nevada on the night of the state’s first-in-the-nation primary.
The speech led some on social media to raise concerns about his health and how rigorous campaigning was affecting him. However, despite the gaffe, Biden has a lead over current overall frontrunner, Senator Bernie Sanders, in the latest South Carolina poll of Democratic voters.
According to figures released by polling firm Public Policy Polling on Monday, Biden has 36 percent of votes, ahead of Sanders who has 21 percent. The firm added that Biden was the only candidate with a favorability rating of over 50 percent.
