What Did He Say? Joe Biden Tries to Describe the COVID Pandemic, and...Well...

It’s no secret that Joe Biden sometimes has trouble getting his words out. Unfortunately, what’s always been a recipe for gaffes has turned into a dinner-sized word salad….and his speech Monday was no different.

In a rambling moment that appeared to be more than just a momentary stumble, Biden tried to explain the severity of the coronavirus pandemic, and…well…

"COVID has taken this year, just since the outbreak, has taken more than 100 year—look, here's, the lives, it's just, it's, er, I mean, y’think about it. More lives this year than any other year…for the past hundred years."

Now, to be fair, this…excerpt?...from Biden’s speech was by no means his entire address, during which he did repeatedly and articulately blame President Donald Trump for the violent riots that have shaken Democrat-controlled American cities across the country for months. But the moment follows a long and concerning series of stumbles, gaffes and memory lapses that have some questioning whether the 77-year-old Biden is up to the task as Commander in Chief and leader of the free world, arguably the toughest job on the planet.

But his wife Jill says we shouldn’t worry about his mental competency, so I guess everything’s A-OK in the basement.
