Joe Biden “I’m an old guy”

    Facts

    In a viral video from a recent campaign stop in Iowa, former Vice President Joe Biden said that his pick for a Vice Presidential running mate needs to be “…capable of [being] president because I’m an old guy.”  The former Vice President apparently caught that his words could be misconstrued after there was some laughter from the crowd and followed up with, “No, I’m serious. Look, I thank God I’m in great health. I work out. No, I’m serious. You know, I work out every morning. I’m in good shape — knock on wood, as my mother would say.”

    Left

    We did not find any Left-wing outlets expressly addressing Biden’s comment other than to clarify that he followed up with the comment that he is in fact healthy.  The former Vice President has a history of speaking gaffes that are acknowledged by folks on both sides of the political spectrum.  In a recent article in the Washington Post, Matt Viser discussed numerous “sayings” used by Joe Biden on the campaign trail and called them “Bidenisms.”

    Right

    Some on the Right see Biden’s speaking errors as a sign of cognitive issues. At another recent town hall event in Iowa, the former Vice President could not recall the date when he and former President Barack Obama were first elected.  TWITTER LINK
