Sadly, the dementia-like behavior from Great Grandpa Joe continues.
Mr. Biden, who has come under fire for his forgetfulness and confusion, and whose health is under a microscope after his eye pooled with blood on national TV, was caught in yet another fog of confusion.
It’s gotten so bad for the Democrat frontrunner, that recently, Fox News Senior Political Analyst Brit Hume said Biden’s so-called “gaffes” were more like senility.
Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume suggested that 2020 Democratic front-runner Joe Biden is suffering from creeping senility.
Responding to Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s assessment that Biden, 76, seemingly doesn’t even want to be president, Hume said, “I think he’s always wanted to be president. He has tried it before repeatedly, right? Hasn’t worked out. I think now perhaps he thinks it’s his turn.” Hume went on to say that Biden’s gaffe-prone style has been a problem for him in the past, but that his more recent blunders likely indicate something more serious.
Hume referenced Biden’s claim that he met with Parkland, Florida, high school students while vice president in 2018, despite having left office the year before. “The fact that he misremembered that is not a gaffe,” Hume observed. “That’s the kind of memory problems that people his age, and indeed my age, have all the time. I think the thing that may catch up with Biden over time, even among Democrats who would otherwise be for him, is the feeling that senility is overtaking him. And I think it is.” [Washington Examiner]
And the hits keep coming for the 2020 hopeful…at a recent campaign event, a very confused Great Grandpa Biden appears unable to remember his eight-long years as part of the Obama White House, when he refers to George W. Bush as our “last President.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden was speaking in New Hampshire Friday when he once again made a verbal gaffe, referring to George W. Bush as the “last president.”
“I’m the only guy that’s beaten the NRA, and my state is a big gun-owning state because of hunting,” Biden said in Laconia, New Hampshire, according to a video posted by the GOP War Room.
“I’m the only guy that’s beaten them twice. I got assault weapons banned for 10 years, it had to be reauthorized because of hanging chads in Florida. The last president said no, I’m not going to reauthorize it.”
Biden is referring to the 10-year assault weapons ban passed under President Bill Clinton in 1994 that was not renewed under President George W. Bush.
Bush is, of course, not the “last president,” as Biden served as vice president under former President Barack Obama.
During the same appearance, Biden also seemed to refer to Charlottesville, Virginia simply as “Charlotte.”

This is at least the second time Biden has made this mistake over the last week

Biden, currently the Democratic front runner, has made numerous verbal flubs and remarks while on the campaign trail.
Last month, he appeared to forget Obama’s name during a speech, and he seemed to think that he was vice president during the Parkland, Florida shooting, which took place over a year after he left office.
The 76-year-old also said that his health care plan was going to be “not quality” in a speech in August. [Daily Caller]
