Council Bluffs, IA – Former Vice President Joe Biden has become known for his verbal gaffes and excessive physical contact with women of all ages in formal photos, but the Democratic Presidential candidate took strange behavior to a new level when he nibbled on his wife’s fingers Saturday at the kickoff of his “No Malarkey” campaign tour.
Jill Biden was introducing her husband at the launch of an eight-day, 800-mile road trip through Iowa, according to the New York Post.
As she spoke, Jill threw her arms wide more than once as she enthusiastically spoke of her husband.
Video of the bizarre incident showed the first time she did it, Biden dramatically dodged her hand. The second time, he pretended to bite her.
Jill appeared to take the nibble in stride, but not everybody who watched the news clip of the incident was amused.
But nothing Biden has said or done seems to faze the Democrats who see former President Barack Obama’s wingman as the savior who can beat President Donald Trump.
Even when he has no idea what he’s talking about.
Biden claimed he was Vice President when 17 students were murdered at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. He wasn’t.
He’s repeatedly demonstrated his lack of basic knowledge of firearms while ardently championing gun control legislation.
First, he said Americans shouldn’t be able to possess “a magazine with 100 clips in it.”
“I believe in the Second Amendment, but nobody says you can have a round – a magazine with 100 clips in it!” he told the cheering crowd.
“100 b-bullets in it,” he stammered a second later, recognizing his mistake.
Understanding basic firearms knowledge has been a struggle for Biden in the past.
During a campaign stop in Iowa in September, he called for a ban on “magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them,” which would essentially outlaw most handguns, The Washington Times reported.
“The idea that we don’t have elimination of assault-type weapons, magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them is absolutely mindless,” he declared during his visit to Cedar Rapids. “It is no violation of the Second Amendment. It’s just a bow to the special interests of the gun manufacturers and the NRA.”
Biden also demonstrated his confusion about firearms terms during a Democratic fundraiser in New York in August.
“There is no rationale for us to have these assault weapons,” he told the 250-member crowd, according to the Washington Examiner. “Who needs a clip that can hold 100 rounds?”
On Nov. 15, the candidate proclaimed he is a supporter of the Second Amendment while simultaneously calling for a ban on “pistols with 9mm bullets” during a $2,800-per-head fundraising event.
Biden’s strange remarks, factual inaccuracies, and stumbling speech are nothing new, as was evidenced in a video of a 2017 Wilmington, Delaware speech about “Corn Pop” that recently resurfaced on social media.
Clips from the longer speech made for excellent memes for the full-length speech about a “bad dude named Corn Pop” who gave him trouble when he was a privileged blonde lifeguard in an all-black neighborhood.
“And by the way, you know, I sit on the stand, and it gets hot and I got lotta hairy legs that turn blonde in the sun,” Biden explained. “And the kids used to come up and reach in the pool and rub my leg down (unintelligible) and then watch the hair come back up again and look at it. So I learned about roaches and I learned about kids jumping on my lap. And I’ve loved kids jumping on my lap.”
“What is he even talking about? Anyone in front of a podium shouldn't be talking about wet leg hairs and like kids sitting on their laps. Weird just weird,” @winningatmylife tweeted in response to the clip.
