Politicians are known to make outlandish claims or do strange things for power. But in this past election cycle, Biden takes the prize for the strangest candidate, as the elderly man is making regular speaking and public relations gaffes, from inappropriate touching to bizarre statements about any number of unrelated topics. If anything, he may be showing the signs of senility or dementia as opposed to being just strange as a person.
In another public relations gaffe, Biden has declared that since 2007, 150 million people have been killed by guns in America, which is about half of the national population.
Biden, 77, made the assertion during Tuesday’s presidential debate in South Carolina while touting his record on gun control and taking a dig at Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
“Imagine if I said we give immunity to drug companies, we give immunity to tobacco companies. That has caused carnage on our streets. One hundred and fifty million people have been killed since 2007 when Bernie voted to exempt the gun manufacturers from liability. More than all the wars,” he said. (source)
One can only imagine what statement Biden will say next. But the fact that he is still being considered as a serious candidate speaks to the lack of seriousness the Democrats have for this election. Indeed, they would rather that Trump win, for it will help them take the White House in 2024.
