VIDEO: Biden Says 'Pandemic Is That The President Has No Intercourse'
Wilmington, DE – Former Vice President and Presidential hopeful Joe Biden upped his verbal gaffe game on Friday when he misused the word “intercourse” for the second time in a week and forgot the name of the Ebola virus while doing an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“This pandemic,” Biden told Mika Brzezinski, “The pandemic is that the President has no intercourse whatsoever with the rest of the coun- uh the world on doing with these things. We led (unintelligible) Barack Obama led the uh corona- uh excuse me (stutter) in the pandemic that occurred when we were in office. It was kept in Africa. We organized the world. We put things together.”
The Presidential candidate also used the word “intercourse” during an interview with WFOR in Miami on Monday, WRVA reported.
Biden was answering a question about whether he planned to restore the World Health Organization’s (WHO) U.S. funding if he was elected.
"If, in fact, for example, we solve the problem in the United States of America and you don’t solve it in other parts of the world, you know what's going to happen?” Biden asked. “You're going to have travel bans, you’re going to not be able to do, have have economic intercourse around the world. There’s a lot – look – when America goes alone when America is first it’s American alone…”
It was unfortunate timing to repeatedly misuse the word “intercourse” as the former Vice President has recently been accused of sexually assaulting a former Senate staffer Tara Reade and then refused to unseal documents housed by the University of Delaware that might shed credibility on her claims.
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.
