Joe Biden appeared in a VA clinic yesterday, supposedly to talk about the importance of veterans.
Somewhere between “Go talk about veterans and VA funding” and the podium, Biden lost track of things. He found himself standing at a podium, with three men he didn’t know in front of him, and he was supposed to say something about veterans.
Apparently when he saw two tall black men and one tall white man on the stage with him, he assumed the two black guys were basketball players and the white guy was a bomber pilot.
“The three congressmen you have here — two of them look like they could — they really could and did play ball. And the other one looks like he could bomb you,” was his assessment.
The MMMs leaped to his defense, pointing out one of the men did have piloting experience, so that’s obviously what Biden meant.
Please. This is not a guy making a clumsy reference to something he knows about one of the people on stage with him. This is a guy who has no idea what’s going on around him.
