Sometimes, it happens that a person says the wrong thing, but we all know what they meant. However, Joe Biden had just made (yet another) gaffe that has some people suspicious that it’s less of a mistake and more of a Freudian slip.
Here’s what the Presidential nominee had to say:
“We’re in a situation where we have put together – and you guys did it for our admi … the president, Obama’s administration before this – we have put together, I think, the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics,”
Interpreters the world over immediately got to work to figure out just what it was he said. However, one flub in particular stands out:
“we have put together, I think, the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics,”
It’s possible Biden meant to say something other than fraud, but Joe himself might be the only one who knows for sure, but even then, I have doubts. But because it’s difficult to place what he meant, it might actually be a case of accidentally saying the quiet part out loud.
It’s also possible that someone hacked the world’s most influential teleprompter. Our own guys really need to step it up, because it’s looking like the Russians are the only ones that are any good at hacking stuff.
(By the way, that was a joke, not a challenge. I know that American intelligence agencies excel at spying on Americans.)
What makes Biden different from your usual politician is the sheer number of gaffes that come right from him, such as this gem from just last night, when he forgot who he was running against:
‘Four more years of George, er, George, er, he – we’re going to find ourselves in a position where, if Trump gets elected, we’re going to be in a different world,’
His wife, who was present, appeared to silently correct him, but it’s amusing that he said the same name again as he attempted to correct himself.
FYI: George W. Bush hasn’t run for office since 2004.
What I find amusing is his sentiment that ‘if Trump gets elected, we’re going to be in a different world’. Nice try, Biden. But Trump was already elected. He’s up for re-election; he’s the incumbent.
If you’re a Biden supporter, you’ll be relieved to know that he’s called a lid on press events until the election, reducing the likelihood that your guy will slip up on camera.
