“President Joe Biden was branded “confused” last night after making multiple mistakes during a speech while campaigning for Democrats in Florida.
As the party continues to face an uphill fight for next week’s midterms, the President addressed a series of three gatherings in the state to drum up support, but ended up making a series of bizarre gaffes.
The 79-year-old mistook the American war in Iraq with the Russian invasion in Ukraine, said his son Beau died in Iraq and claimed he met the “inventor” of insulin.
In a point that President Biden makes regularly in public speeches, he attempted to blame rising costs on Russia’s war in Ukraine, which has sent energy prices rocketing.
Instead he confused his geography and history, saying: “Inflation is a worldwide problem right now because of a war in Iraq and the impact on oil and what Russia is doing,” before interjecting: “Excuse me, the war in Ukraine.”
He then added: “I’m thinking Iraq because that’s where my son died.” Beau Biden passed away after a battle with brain cancer in May 2015 in Maryland, at the age of 46. He had returned from a yearlong deployment to Iraq five years earlier.
Biden was also mocked online for claiming he “spoke” to the man who “invented” insulin, one of whom died the year before Biden was born.”
Comment: Putin may be ill, but what is happening with Joe Biden IMO amounts to elder abuse. Does this man not have a wife? How can she let this mistreatment continue? For god’s sake let him go home to Delaware. That is where he wants to be. pl
