President Biden got confused about just which demographic he was pandering to Thursday, but this wasn’t the only embarrassing moment this week for the feeble, cognitively challenged 80-year-old president.
Biden praised the “Congressional Black Caucus” during a speech — the problem being that he was addressing the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.
Speaking at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s 46th Annual Gala in Washington, Biden was recognizing gala award recipient Sister Norma Pimental, executive director of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley.
“I know Sister Norma lives the lessons nuns taught me growing up. Lessons based on the Gospel of Matthew: feed the hungry, care for the sick, welcome strangers,” the president said. “They echo what my dad taught me, and I mean this sincerely, my dad used to say, ‘Everyone, everyone is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect.’”
“The Congressional Black Caucus embodies all those values,” he continued, slurring his words in the process without realizing his blunder.

Fortunately, he has the media in his corner — which explains why he escaped largely unscathed last week when he claimed that African-American and Hispanic workers don’t have “high school diplomas.”
“We’ve seen record lows in unemployment particularly — and I’ve focused on this my whole career — particularly for African Americans and Hispanic workers and veterans, you know, the workers without high school diplomas,” Biden said while speaking at Prince George’s Community College in Maryland.
On Wednesday, Biden told the same story twice within minutes while commenting on the 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va.
“You remember those folks walking out of the fields literally carrying torches, with Nazi swastikas, holding them forward, singing the same vicious, antisemitic bile — the same exact bile — bile that was sung in — in Germany in the early ‘30s. And a young woman was killed. A young woman was killed,” he said at a campaign fundraiser in Manhattan.
Biden repeated the debunked lie involving Trump’s reaction to that event, claiming this was what prompted him to run for president.
“[T]he former guy was asked, ‘What do you think would happen?’ He was the sitting president. And he said, ‘I thought there were some very fine people on both sides.’ And I mean this sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, that’s when I decided I — I was going to run again.”
He would repeat the story almost word for word a few minutes later — which may be an early sign of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
But we aren’t supposed to care about his age and mental state. Okey dokey. https://t.co/4DSTU4VKB9
