  1. August 8, 2019: He tells the Asian & Latino Coalition in Des Moines, Iowa, that ‘poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.’ He attempted to clear up his statement, adding: ‘Wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids — no, I really mean it. But think how we think about it … We think how we’re going to dumb it down. They can do anything anybody else can do given a shot.’ Later that day he tells a crowd: ‘We choose unity over division. We choose science over fiction. We choose truth over facts.’

    August 9: Biden was accosted by a right-wing Turning Point USA staffer at a rally in Iowa. ‘How many genders are there?’ He asked. Biden replied: ‘There are at least three.’ The reporter said, ‘What are they?’ And Biden responded: ‘Don’t play games with me, kid.’ Biden then shook someone in the crowd’s hand before turning back and saying, ‘By the way, the first one to come out for marriage was me.’

    August 10: Biden says he was VP when the Parkland school shooting took place, even though it occurred in 2018. ‘Those kids in Parkland came up to see me when I was vice president,’ he told a reporter. A campaign official clarified that Biden meant the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, in December 2012.

    August 24: Biden mistakes New Hampshire for Vermont. Speaking in Keene, NH, he said: ‘I love this place. Look, what’s not to like about Vermont in terms of the beauty of it?’ September 2: Biden appears confused about the definition of a magazine for a rifle, telling supporters in Iowa: ‘The idea that we don’t have elimination of assault type weapons, magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them, it’s absolutely mindless.’ By definition a magazine holds multiple rounds.

    September 25: Biden forgot the name of the last Supreme Court nominee under President Barack Obama on Jimmy Kimmel’s show. ‘Back when, when they were holding up before Trump got elected, they were holding up, uh, um, the nomination of the president put forward for the Supreme Court,’ Biden rambled. ‘Merrick Garland,’ Kimmel said. ‘Merrick Garland, a really fine man,’ Biden added.

    November 2: Says he’s in Ohio when he’s in Iowa. November 20: Biden claimed that he had the backing of the Senate’s only black female Senator during a Democratic debate. ‘I have more people supporting me in the black community that have vouched for me because they know who I am… The only African-American woman who’s ever been elected to the United States Senate.’ Senator Kamala Harris corrected him, saying: ‘That’s not true. The other one is here!’

    December 5: He called a voter a ‘damn liar’ and ‘fat’ after he asked if his son Hunter earned a job on the board of a Ukrainian gas company as a result of his father’s high office. ‘You’re a damn liar, and that’s not true,’ Biden snapped at him. ‘I’m not sedentary. You want to check my shape, let’s do push ups together, let’s run, let’s do whatever you want to do, let’s take an IQ test.’ He continued, ‘But look, fat, here’s the deal.’

    February 9, 2020: Biden called a 21-year-old woman a ‘lying, dog-faced pony soldier’ during a Q&A in New Hampshire. Asked by the economics student Madison Moore about his poor performances in the Iowa caucuses, he asked if she’d ever attended a caucus. Moore said she had and Biden hit back: ‘No you haven’t! You’re a lying, dog-faced pony soldier.’

    February 24: In South Carolina he said: ‘My name’s Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate.’ During the same speech he claimed to to have worked with Chinese leader ‘Deng Xiaoping’ on the Paris Climate Accord – Deng died in 1997.

    February 25: During the final Democratic debate he claimed that ‘150 million people have been killed since 2007’ by guns. If that were the case, half the American population would be dead.

    March 1: He calls Fox News host Chris Wallace ‘Chuck,’ and then claims it was because he’d had a recent interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd.

    March 3: He confused Super Tuesday with ‘Super Thursday.’ And during the same speech he botched the Declaration of Independence, saying: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women are created, by the, you know, you know the thing.’

    March 4: He confused his wife with his sister on stage at a rally in California. ‘By the way, this is my little sister Valerie!’ Biden said while grabbing his wife’s right hand. ‘And I’m Jill’s husband,’ he went on while reaching for his sister’s.

    March 9: ‘Together, I think we can win back the House,’ Biden said before correcting himself. ‘We’re gonna keep the House, increase it and flip the Senate.’

    March 10: Biden pledged to ban the ‘AR-14,’ (instead of AR-15) when challenged by a worker who accused him of ‘trying to diminish our second amendment right and take away our guns.’ April: He appeared to forget Barack Obama’s name while discussing Russia’s annexation of Crimea. ‘Because they invaded another country and annexed a significant portion of it called Crimea. He’s saying that it was president – my boss – it was his fault.’

    • *Biden is just too damn old and a weak leader.**Trump beaten back so many foreign enemies and kept the USA safe from terrorist threats, foreign invasion, low unemployment, stopped the angry rioting mob, and so much more.*

      @Xray Paul trump and Biden are in their 70s so dont tell us about age.teump was not a politician.just happy that even the first time voters understands who is trump and his lies

    • @Wairimu Muchira *Have you looked at Trump and Biden’s resume?**Trump has more experience in business economics which will help people grow the economy.**Biden is nothing but a puppet controlled by the Democratic party.**Are you a kid? If so then you will not know compared to someone my age.*

    • I see Trump University and The Trump Foundation closed due fraud.

      @Xray Paul we need a true politician who understands all the people not big corporations.His business did not create more jobs neither provide second stimulus checks.We need a true leader not one who thinks about himself and his friends and leaves other citizens suffering.We are wise than what you think.we understands how evil your clown and his followers are.stop calling me a kid because am better than you think my friend.A guy who separate children from their parents is what you are talking about?a bully who accuses doctors of making man if one dies of covid?a guy who calls fallen soldiers suckers and losers?a guy who claims to be rich but pay no taxes?A boy without a history of his eduation?a guy who inherited wealth from his father and doesnt understand what it means by struggling is what you are talking about?A 18years old boy is better than teump who lies more times than he thinks

  2. Bring unity, decency and dignity back to the 🇺🇸💙❤️ 🇺🇸❤️💙🇺🇸🙏

  3. Clowns making the same biased predictions from 4 yrs ago.

    • They feel painful at the bottom of their heart because they know their conscientiousness says differently. But who cares what they feel!

    • *I hope Trump wins. Biden is just too damn old and is falling into the age of cognitive degeneration of the brain.**Why didn’t the STUPID Democratic party vote either Tulsi Gabbard or Andrew Yang for Presidential Nominee instead???**Too bad because now Trump will get all of our votes again!*

    • Thats where the division actually comes from. These media idiots build up an unobtainable victory in liberal minds the sell them on the boogeyman that stole it from them. There needs to be fines and licenses pulled

    • ​@Xray Paul I used to think the same thing but Joe Biden is not mentally degenerative. It’s all Trump propaganda. But I did wish someone like Tulsi did make it out of the demo. national convention.

      Compared to Trump, Biden seems far better. You know why? His attitude. Biden was a visionary type attitude but trump’s always been a pokey, proud aggressive person with no compassion. Thats at least how he acts in his rallies. Trump has this ‘I’m the dude and its your damn problem if you don’t like me’ attitude. So thats kinda why i’m not fond of trump.

      And i dont rely on CNN. I just see for myself.

  4. Referring to them as battleground states is dangerous

  8. Let me sell you some more BS before you all find out it’s BS…

  9. biden rally : crop circles of vegetables

  10. Thet still haven’t learned anything!

  11. When given the right to choose his master a slave can be made to believe that he’s free. The best slaves are those who’ve been indoctrinated to believe that government can be the solution to problems with government created in the first place.

  12. USA you lied to us too many times
    You destroyed your own credibility
    You exposed your own corruption
    We will never forget 🇺🇸

    500 million Americans voted! Perfect.

  14. Trump’s trucks may be impounded for disrupting elections and disabled for life.

  15. I voted for the old white guy 😂

  16. Personally I believe whoever wins the 2020 election the calibre of those candidates running for election are very poor. Trump a definite egotistical maniac and Bison that wouldn’t be capable of lasting his time out. But I guess it’s up to the American people to decide, thank god I’m in Australia
