That’s one takeaway from a very short but badly mangled speech Joe Biden made at the South Carolina Democratic Party’s “First in the South” dinner on Monday. In the speech, he also revealed that he thinks he is running for the U.S. Senate.
Watch or read. A transcript of the money portion the remarks follow:
You’re the ones who sent Barack Obama the presidency. And I have a simple proposition here: I’m here to ask you for your help. Where I come from, you don’t go very far unless you ask. My name’s Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United State’s Senate. Look me over. If you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden.
The other Biden? Did he mean to say “candidate,” or is there another Biden running for president?
Things in general haven’t gone well for the former vice president lately. In another public appearance, he boasted having signed the Paris Agreement on climate change with Chinese Pres. Deng Xiapoing. Just one small problem. Deng Xiapoing died in 1997 — 11 years before Biden was sworn in as vice president and 19 years before the U.S. became a signatory to that agreement.
One of the things you are proudest of, Joe?
Deng Xiapoing died 11 years before the Obama administration took over.
In April 2016, the United States became a signatory to the Paris Agreement.pic.twitter.com/PFXNfCSUlD
