Republicans are slamming Joe Biden after the presumptive Democratic nominee made a verbal gaffe during a campaign stop in Pennsylvania and said 120 million people had died from the novel coronavirus.

“People don’t have a job, people don’t know where to go, they don’t know what to do,” Biden said Thursday. “Now we have over 120 million dead from COVID.”

As of Thursday, there have been more than 122,000 – not million — coronavirus deaths in the United States, according to Johns Hopkins figures.

After making the error, Biden corrected himself – but the blunder quickly caught the attention of President Donald Trump.

Trump was notified of the clip while being interviewed by Fox News, to which he replied: “That’s a serious error…That’s not a permissible type of error.”

Later that evening, he tweeted the clip of Biden at his campaign event.

The president captioned the video: “If I ever said something so mortifyingly stupid, the Fake News Media would come down on me with a vengeance.

“This is beyond a normal mistake. Why isn’t the media reporting it?”

  1. Does not matter, he is still 16 points ahead of Trump. Democrat leaders look more and more like Soviet Politburo at the last days of Cold War.

  2. It’s really just a slip of the tongue.
    I’m no fan of Biden’s, but you look stupid for trying to make a big deal out of this.

  3. Trump says these things, and doesn’t correct himself and blames everyone for reporting wrongly on what he said, even though it was said.
    This is definitely an excusable gaff especially if he corrected himself.

  4. We all know Biden is a bumbling incompetent idiot. The only question is, who will he choose as his Co-President? Which black female? Michelle Obama? Susan Rice? Oprah? Frederica Wilson? If G-d forbid he wins, when does the DNC yank the old windbag and have the radical VP take over?

  5. Unfortunately the way it looks now,this demented hair sniffing pervert and socialist DemonRat will become our president come nov.3
    if that happens ,God have mercy on this nation because the former Democratic party has been hijacked and taken over by outright revolutionary marxist America haters,it will be the end of the US as we know it.
    my friends it’s time to start packing the bags and heading home while we still can.

  6. Considering that the Trumpkopf has a hard time articulating a coherent English sentence beyond a random mix of hyperbole and grandiose adjectives, I find this quite funny. Biden’s “gaffes” are no more or less common than others of his age. Our Rav (Im guessing in his late 60s) seems to frequently interpolate mincha and maariv, call the the Chazan by the name of his predecessor who retired 5 or 6 years ago and refer to condominiums by another term related to pregnancy avoidance that I won’t mention here. No one feels compelled to Tweet about his memory loss or otherwise suggest he is losing it. Biden doesn’t talk much differently now than when he joined the Senate over 40 years ago. Thats who he is and its part of the “charm that you either like or hate.

  7. As the story says, after the gaffe, Biden corrected himself. Has Trump ever done that, or does he think he never makes gaffes, or genuine substantive mistakes. Trump’s staff tried to say he was kidding about slowing testing to make the numbers – and him – look better, but, gaffe or not, Trump said he was not kidding. So simple gaffe versus intentional fraud. That is the question.

  8. charliehall, by you blaming Trump on 120,000+ dead from Wuhan-19 virus gives goym opportunity to experience what Blood libel really feels like. Enough speeding your Marxist Democrat lies on this forum.

  9. Could someone here take care of getting galus Moishi his psych meds? All the cartons seem to be on the empty side, based on his communications here.

  10. The Democrats forced all the young promising candidates out of the primaries 2 days before Super Tuesday, as they never believed they had any chance in 2020, and wanted to keep these good candidates for 2024. Then השם sent Corona almost immediately after Super Tuesday, when the Democrat top brass couldn’t renege on what they had done.

  11. What we’re seeing here is typical democrat responding – an attempt to quash free speech, especially any criticism of their bumbling, inept presidential candidate, a lack of hakaras hatov, an innately Jewish trait, toward all the good our current president has done for Jews-world wide. My favorite comment by far is the ridiculous GH conflation of Biden with their Rabbi. Poor Rabbi. The democrat party is not on our side and you will not like what happens to America if G-g forbid they win in November. Pack your bags and come home – Eretz Yisroel awaits you- Vshavu Bonim Lgvulum.
