Here are 10 of the goofiest things that Joe Biden, prospective 2020 presidential contender and mayor of Gaffesville, has said
By JD Heyes // Mar 12, 2018

In case you haven’t heard, “Uncle” Joe Biden isn’t satisfied with retirement from political life. And apparently, he isn’t satisfied with only having ever been a vice president.


So he’s considering running for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, even as most Vegas odds-makers put his chances of actually capturing the nomination at close to zero.

It’s early, of course, but already Biden — or any other ‘dream team’ the Democrats put up in three years — has a tall hill to climb. President Donald J. Trump’s approval ratings are rising, the economy is red-hot thanks to his administration’s pro-growth policies, North Korean’s despotic leader wants to talk to him, and America is respected once again in the world.

Then, of course, there is the fact that Biden is the mayor of Gaffeville, having said some goofy, sometimes funny, often outrageous, and even some downright stupid things throughout his career. Like that time at his first campaign rally with then-Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama as his running mate in Springfield, Ill., Aug. 23, 2008, when he introduced the next president this way: “A man I’m proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next president of the United States — Barack America!”

Remember that one?

Well, there are several more examples of ‘Bidenisms’ that we believe it’s appropriate to share now that the previous vice president is considering throwing his hat (again) into the presidential ring. Here are nine more:

— Jan. 31, 2007, when Biden was referring to Obama at the beginning of the 2008 Democratic primary campaign: “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s storybook, man.”

It sure was, Joe. And that was gaffe gold.

— Aug. 20, 2008, when explaining his whereabouts to reporters outside his Wilmington, Del., home (he was dropping deadwood at the dump): “A successful dump!”

Yep. Successful gaffe, too. (Related: Former VP Joe Biden says he wants to be president (again) — do Dems really want an old white guy to face off against Trump?)

— March 17, 2000, in a meet-and-greet with Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowan, in Washington, D.C.: “His mom lived in Long Island for ten years or so. God rest her soul. And- although, she's- wait- your mom's still- your mom's still alive. Your dad passed. God bless her soul.”

You can take the mayor out of Gaffeville, but you can’t take Gaffeville out of the mayor.

— June 2006, in a private remark to an Indian-American that was caught on C-SPAN: “You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent…I’m not joking.”

Sadly, he wasn’t joking. But even if he was….

— Sept. 22, 2008, during an interview with Katie Couric, Biden proved he had no idea that FDR was not president at the outset of the Great Depression, which began with the historic stock market crash in 1929: “When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened.’”

No, he didn’t, Joe.

— Sept. 10, 2008, speaking at a town hall in Nashua, New Hampshire: “Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. Quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me.”

Hmmm, now that’s a tough one…

— On Oct. 15, 2008, in Athens, Ohio, Biden proved to us he couldn’t spell: “Look, John's last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs.”

Or count.

— Sept. 12, 2008, Biden embarrassed a handicapped state senator from Missouri, Chuck Graham, during a campaign event in Columbia: “Stand up, Chuck, let ‘em see ya!”

Graham is confined to a wheelchair.

— March 23, 2010, when congratulating Obama during his signing of the Obamacare legislation, “This is a big f**king deal!”

Not nearly as big as that gaffe, mayor.
