Former Vice President and 2020 Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden can't even remember Senator Mitt Romney's name: The man who literally ran against Biden and former President Barack Obama in 2012.
The forgetful moment from Biden came while he was speaking to reporters on a tarmac before he departed to Toledo, Ohio.
Biden was talking about President Donald Trump's SCOTUS nomination Amy Coney Barrett’s Catholic faith and quickly started deflecting to Romney.
He couldn't remember his name.
"Her faith should not be considered," Biden said of Barrett. "You may remember I got in trouble when we were running against the senator who was a Mormon, the governor."
Biden has been on a gaffe rampage in recent days. During a campaign event in Erie, Pennsylvania on Saturday, former Biden suffered from one of his most embarrassing gaffes to date.
“You’re trying your breast, but it never feels like enough," he said.
This wasn't the only gaffe that Biden made over the weekend. At a different campaign event, Biden misread his teleprompter and called for a $15 million minimum wage.
"... and increasing incomes. A $15 million dollar minimum..." Biden started. He then incorrectly corrected himself. "A 15 thousand dollar..." he started.
"ha ha, a $15 minimum wage," he finally said.
