Biden ‘misspoke’ on opposing the Iraq War ‘immediately’: Biden adviser

Biden ‘misspoke’ on opposing the Iraq War ‘immediately’: Biden adviser A Washington Post fact check refutes Biden's claim that he immediately opposed invading Iraq.

" Biden was never very smart. He was a terrible student. His gaffes are unbelievable. Several months after ending his campaign , Biden was treated for two brain aneurysms; there was speculation that the "The president and I were talking about something yesterday in the Oval Office which, with the

Donald Trump Jr. mocked Biden on TMZ for his “perpetual gaffes ” and for suggesting that no one involved in a non-violent crime should be in prison during the Democrat debate on “Anyone related to the Trump administration is in no position to throw stones when it comes to gaffe statements,” he said.

A new video from President Trump’s re-election campaign takes a big swipe at former Vice President Joe Biden's fitness for office, spotlighting clips of his recent gaffes and other verbal fumbles coupled with copious clips of pundits questioning his readiness.

The video, released Tuesday morning and shared first with Fox News, stitches together everything from his recent debate-stage musing about "record players" to his statement that "poor kids" are just as talented as "white kids." Interspersed with the clips of the 76-year-old Biden's comments are those of pundits wondering about his stumbles, shakiness, mental and physical stamina, whether he’s “lost a step” and whether he’s “equipped for a very grueling campaign.”

Tuesday morning, Biden released a campaign video that, although not mentioning Trump by name, unmistakably drew a contrast between the two men and their competing visions for America, as well as former President Barack Obama praising Biden 's character. "We are seeing appeals to populism

In his campaign announcement video , Biden rebuked the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville "I am a gaffe machine, but my God what a wonderful thing compared to a guy who can't tell the truth In recent months, Biden defended his work with Republicans as he came under fire for praising a GOP


The former vice president’s age and mental acuity have been questioned ever since he launched his 2020 presidential campaign in late April. Last week, the front-runner in the Democratic nomination race faced repeated attacks from rivals over his memory.

Former Housing Secretary Julian Castro, who served in the Obama administration with Biden, landed arguably the lowest blow when he swiped at Biden’s memory — accusing him of contradicting himself on whether Americans would have to buy into his health care plan.

Speaking at the Workers’ Presidential Summit in Philadelphia, the 2020 frontrunner mocked the idea of having a tax break for "a racehorse" and not one for having children.

Joe Biden , Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders share the stage for the first time in a testy debate. As the debate was under way, President Trump told a Republican gathering in Baltimore that he now thought that Ms Warren had a chance of beating Joe Biden , referring to both by derisive nicknames.

"You just said two minutes ago they would have to buy in. Are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago?" Castro asked, in what appeared to be a reference to past Biden moments.

In that case, as the Biden campaign later noted, Castro was wrong. Biden did not say during the debate that individuals would have to buy in. Instead, he said that individuals would automatically be enrolled if they lost their jobs.

But Biden has drawn criticism for other stumbles. And another rival, Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, backed Castro after the debate and raised further questions about Biden’s ability to carry the banner for the Democrats into 2020.

"I think we are at a tough point right now, because there’s a lot of people concerned about Joe Biden’s ability to carry the ball all the way across the end line without fumbling," Booker told CNN in an interview. "And I think that Castro had really legitimate concerns about can he be someone in a long grueling campaign … and has every right to call out."

'Perfectly fine and routine conversation': Trump defends call with Ukrainian president

  'Perfectly fine and routine conversation': Trump defends call with Ukrainian president In Saturday morning tweets, President Trump pushed back on a reported whistleblower complaint.The complaint reportedly centers on concerns that Trump urged President Volodymyr Zelensky to work with his attorney Rudy Giuliani to investigate Hunter Biden's ties to an energy company owned by a Ukrainian oligarch.

Joe Biden committed another gaffe on the campaign trail, struggling to remember the word "escalator" during a campaign event on Sunday. Biden ’s struggle to remember the word “escalator” was the latest in a string of high profile lapses that have raised concerns about his fitness for the presidency.

Joe Biden 's mission in the presidential bid he launched on Thursday is to prove he's not a man out of step with the times. But Biden has one huge card to sell to Democrats desperate to oust Trump : He might be their best hope of beating the President, especially in the Midwestern, blue-collar heartland.

A clip of that Booker interview appears in the Trump campaign video.

The jabs from some of his mid- and lower-tier rivals are raising concerns that Biden — if he wins the nomination — would be weakened for the general election showdown against Trump.

Biden is far from the only candidate where age is an issue. The president is 72 and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont — another top tier Democratic presidential candidate — is 77. Another top Democratic White House rival, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, is 70. But concerns about their ages have been less of a factor.

The Trump re-election campaign said there was no digital buy behind their latest video.
