It was tough to watch what happened to Joe Biden during one of his speeches.
He became disoriented while the audience looked on in horror.
After that, he was forced to end his speech.
There is perhaps nobody in politics who is more of a gaffe machine than Joe Biden. He has been saying bizarre things for many years.
In fact, it dates all the way back to his 1988 presidential campaign, when he was found to have plagiarized an entire speech from a British politician.
Biden’s embarrassing gaffes continue to this day, and he serves them up almost on a weekly basis now. And it has people questioning whether he is fit to continue serving as president.
After the most recent one, he ended his speech a little while later, and his audience walked away confused about what had just happened.
He forgot a key fact about one of his most loyal supporters, and ended up delivering a tremendous insult, even though he had meant to compliment her.
Now Democrats are wondering if they should put someone else in as the nominee instead of running it back with Biden yet again.
According to Newsweek, “Joe Biden’s speech slip-up at Sunday’s Kennedy Center Honors is taking over the internet, with the blunder sparking jokes and memes on social media.”
“The president hosted the annual awards ceremony at the White House, where several famous faces were rewarded for their contribution to American culture.”
“While praising 2023 honoree Queen Latifah—a rapper, singer and actress with more than 35 awards to her name—Biden said: ‘She’s earned a Golden Globe and a Primetime Enemy,’ rather than ‘Emmy.’”
The audience was bewildered and confused. Did Biden think he was talking about the ‘90s rap group Public Enemy? No one could seem to understand why he referred to Queen Latifah as a “Primetime Enemy.”
Biden soon corrected himself, perhaps after one of his staffers prompted him. The article continues, “Realizing his mistake, the 81-year-old stopped and repeated: ‘Enemy?’”
But it was too late to contain the fallout from this gaffe. According to the article, “A video of the gaffe was posted to X, formerly Twitter, by RNC (Republican National Committee) Research, where it received over 33,000 views and plenty of responses from social media users.”
Later on, the article explains why this is such a problem for Biden.
“Running in the presidential primaries for the fourth time, Biden is the anticipated choice for the Democratic candidate. According to polling analysis site FiveThirtyEight, the president is currently polling at 67 percent, with his closest contender, Marianne Williamson sitting at 7 percent.”
“However, critics have accused Biden of cognitive decline, with the president making a series of mistakes during public appearances throughout his campaign run.”
These questions will surely continue to grow in light of Biden’s latest embarrassing mistake during a stump speech.
Joe Biden may no longer be fit to serve as president, and Democrats are going to have to come up with a solution if they want to avoid disaster.
