Recently, Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden was released from the basement he’s been hiding in to make a quick gaffe before being returned to shelter.
At a campaign stop in Pennsylvania, Biden erroneously claimed that 120 million people have died from COVID-19.
“People don’t have a job, people don’t know where to go, they don’t know what to do,” Biden said. “Now we have over 120 million dead from COVID.”
That estimate is only off by about 119 million.
The Trump campaign team immediately fired back, calling Biden “very confused” and teasing that “he’s not playing with a full deck,” and employed the increasingly popular hashtag “#BarelyThereBiden.”
Later that day, in an interview with Fox News Host Sean Hannity, President Trump called Biden’s comments “mortifyingly stupid.”
“If I ever said something so mortifyingly stupid, the Fake News Media would come down on me with a vengeance,” he claimed.
And we know he’s right.
Anytime the president mispeaks or even makes a slight typo, the media runs wild with accusations about President Trump’s mental faculties and all-but calls for the invocation of the 25th Amendment.
With Biden, they call it a ‘gaffe’ and move on.
But President Trump wasn’t letting it slide.
“That’s not like an error, ‘Gee, it’s a slip-up,” Trump told Hannity. “That’s a serious error. That’s not a permissible type of error, because there’s something going on.”
The president continued, saying “you know, it’s wonderful to say, ‘Gee I feel sorry,’ or ‘It’s too bad,’ because I do, except we’re talking about the presidency of the United States, and it’s just not acceptable.”
He also tweeted the ‘mortifyingly stupid’ comment and asked “why isn’t the media reporting it?”
President Trump drove the point home, telling Hannity “here’s a guy who doesn’t talk. Nobody hears him. Whenever he does talk – he can’t put two sentences together. I don’t want to be nice or un-nice. I mean, the man can’t speak.”
It’s clear Joe Biden is not going to get away with his absent-minded comments if President Trump has anything to do about it.
