During a virtual event from his basement on Wednesday, former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden appeared to forget what year it was when he was talking about the 2020 census.
“…But you know, in the 2020 census, which is now two censuses ago…” Biden said.
The incident was very similar to another that took place the day prior when Biden forgot which community center he was at. During a campaign event in Wilmington, Delaware on Tuesday, Biden welcomed people to the wrong community center.
"Good afternoon everyone. Welcome to Kingswood Community Center," the former Vice President said.
He then stood still with a blank look of confusion on his face. "Actually, that's the one down... I used to work... It's a joke... I didn't know where we were."
Biden has been a total embarrassment on the campaign trail considering he relies on his handlers to get him through the day. During one interview, his staffer cut him off from as he began to digress into an incoherent meltdown.
"Why do you wear the mask? So you don't make somebody else sick!" Biden said during an interview while holding a mask as he began to raise his voice.
"I wan't to ask you..." ABC 15's Steve Irvin started before he was cut off by the former Vice President.
"SICK!" Biden angrily interrupted. "What's with this guy?" he asked, referring to President Trump.
The staffer then jumped in, cutting off the livestream, saying, "That's our time."
Irvin, who was now looking at a blank screen that read "Ali Krupkin" seemed confused and disappointed as he said, "Okay... Alright... I appreciate you time. Thank so much to Mr. Vice President as well."
Biden's handler then allowed Biden to respond to the comment, "Thank you I hope I can see you again," said Biden as he looked into his lap with confusion.
Donald Trump Jr. made sure to comment on the matter, tweeting, "Joe Biden saved by a staffer before his usual meltdown. Cut off because they know he’s not competent! How can this guy be expected to run the country if he needs to be handled for a simple TV interview?"
Biden's handlers have been making that Biden gets softball interviews considering he can't handle himself with a tough interviewer. Despite this fact, Biden still struggles through the easiest of interviews.
