Joe Biden raised eyebrows again on Monday for comments he made on the campaign trail. However, as part of his explanation, he recalled a time when he “got in trouble” regarding the questioning of someone’s faith.
“You may remember, I got in trouble when we were running against the senator who was a Mormon, the governor, OK? And I took him on,” Biden said. “No one’s faith should be questioned.”
That governor was then-former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee for president against Barack Obama in the 2012 election. Romney was elected Utah senator in 2018.
While closing his stump speech at a campaign drive-in event in Toledo, Biden touted America’s ability to come out of a national crisis “stronger” than it was coming in.
“You know, we have to come together. That’s why I’m running. I’m running as a proud Democrat for the Senate,” Biden said, “when I ran as a proud Democrat for vice president, and I’m running as a proud Democrat for president. But I promise you this, I will govern as an American president.”
President Trump mocked Joe Biden’s recent gaffes on social media.
“I’m running as a proud Democrat, for the Senate”. Sleepy Joe Biden today. It’s only going to get worse. It is not sustainable for our County – China will own us!!!!“
“Sleepy Joe Biden had a particularly bad day today. He couldn’t remember the name of Mitt Romney, said again he was running for the U.S. Senate, and forgot what State he was in. If I did any of this, it would be disqualifying. With him, he’s just Sleepy Joe!”
Robby Starbuck wrote “He recently said “I am the Democratic Party” and I have to agree. Deceptive, mentally unsound, elitist, entirely unfit, able to be bought and a puppet for the far left. This man is not well.”
Alana Stewart wrote “This is no longer funny. Surely every American with common sense can see that this poor man is not capable of being President of the U.S. Twice now he’s said he’s running for the Senate. Don’t be duped that he’s going to unite anyone. #Biden #Senate”
