Joe Biden has been trying to defend his record.
But his tendency to make outrageous statements is making voters think twice.
This shocking public blunder could make his campaign crumble apart.
Joe Biden is one of the oldest politicians in the Democratic race.
He is facing criticism because of his character, age and record.
Biden has always been the loose cannon in the Democratic Party.
His missteps have caused them embarrassment before.
When he was running against Obama in the 2008 primary, Joe Biden said about him:
“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”
He also said on national radio:
“You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent….I’m not joking.”
His well-known, hands-on behavior with women has also been a source of concern.
Now that he is into his late seventies his gaffs are only getting worse.
At a rally on Friday, Biden was trying to defend the three million deportations that happened under Obama.
Because it is undeniable that Trump has merely been continuing policies that were in place under the Obama-Biden administration.
He was asked to apologize for enforcing American laws.
When confronted, Biden waffled around making a half apology that made no one happy.
“I will not apologize for the deportation of people who have committed a felony.” He added, “I will apologize for deportations if in fact you were deported because in fact you were engaged in a misdemeanor… or your family was separated.”
Then he added in an embarrassing blunder.
“We need family separation.”
Was he acknowledging that housing children separately from adults came about as a policy because of fears that children housed with adults could be subject to abuse?
Or is his age catching up with him and making it harder for him to think clearly?
In the debate last month, Biden promised that his first priority as President would be to defeat Trump.
It is clear that he is having trouble.
Do you think that Biden is tripping up because of his age or has he always been this way?
