Joe Biden wants nothing more than to be President of the United States.
But his ridiculous decisions and statements continue to get in the way of that dream.
And he just made a huge mistake that will cost him the presidency.
Following escalating tensions between the United States and Iran, Joe Biden made his opinion known on the matter while speaking at an event in New York City.
He spoke about the strike Trump ordered to kill Iranian terrorist Qasem Soleimani, claiming that it is causing immense harm in the Middle East.
“Our allies and our partners who have troops in harm’s way that are in fact impacted by this decision,” he explained. “Our forces in Iraq and Syria are now focused on protecting themselves, preparing to leave, putting the counter ISIS mission on hold and allowing a deadly terrorist organization room to regroup and reactivate.”
It is no surprise that Biden is speaking out against that order, considering that he reportedly told Barack Obama not to pursue Osama bin Laden while serving as Vice President.
Outside of that fact, his statements mirror much of what other Democrat figures are saying.
But it was his next claim that is raising eyebrows, where he mixes up the Iraqi parliament with Iran.
“The Iran parliament,” he continued incorrectly, “The Iran parliament voted to reject all Americans coalition forces in the country, and however you may feel about American military presence in the Middle East, there’s a right way and a wrong way to draw down our troops.”
In reality, it was Iraq that placed that vote, not Iran.
This is far from the first time he has made a fool of himself on the campaign trail.
In recent years, his gaffes have proven to be disastrous for his political career.
He has been labeled the “king of gaffes” for his insane comments.
Recently he forgot what state he was in, asking a New Hampshire crowd “what’s not to like about Vermont?”
He also recently discussed the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., misstating the year of their deaths by a decade.
“Bobby Kennedy and Dr. King had been assassinated in the ’70s, the late ’70s, when I got engaged,” Biden said.
Biden also stated that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids,” mixed up the locations of the recent El Paso and Dayton shootings, stating that they were in “Houston” and “Michigan,” and confused both Theresa May and Angela Merkel with Margaret Thatcher.
And these are just things that he misstated, likely out of old age.
There are also comments he has made that are downright insensitive.
He recently praised segregationist Senators.
And during Obama’s first presidential run, he called then-candidate Obama “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”
While these in themselves are bad, mixing up Iraq and Iran during such a major conflict cast serious doubt on his ability to lead the nation during a world conflict.
On the campaign trail, this mistake doesn’t mean much.
But as the Commander in Chief, mistakes like these have the possibility of putting American lives at risk.
Do you think Joe Biden would put American lives at risk as President?
