Trump Roasted For Another Major Gaffe

The probable Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, has made several blunders like this before, and his confusion about Barack Obama with Joe Biden at a Virginia rally on Saturday has added fuel to the fire that he is “cognitively impaired.”

There are comparable worries about Biden.

The combined age of the two presumptive nominees is 160 years – a record. Trump will be 78 and Biden 82. Biden is the oldest person to ever run for office.

When Trump mentioned Obama’s name instead of Biden’s, the audience allegedly fell silent. Obama left the white house seven years ago.

This is Trump’s third gaffe in the last six months. Biden’s average is much higher than that; it’s not even close.

One of the ex-president’s other blunders was conflating his Republican opponent, Nikki Haley, with the late Nancy Pelosi.

Biden continually sees dead people.

In her 52-year-old campaign advertising, Haley portrays herself as the younger, healthier alternative, referring to Trump and Biden as Grumpy Old Men. She has rejected Trump and multiple primary losses to continue running for the Republican nomination.

The United States is planning to airdrop humanitarian supplies to the Palestinians in Gaza, who are facing famine as a result of the Israeli airstrikes and blockades. Biden said we are airlifting supplies to Ukraine.

A White House official later explained that Biden had intended to say Gaza. His statements were whitewashed in the transcript to remove the gaffe.

Rumors regarding Biden’s age have been more persistent in the past few months.

The most recent slip-up occurred only days after he was deemed “fit for duty” at his yearly physical.

According to a recent New York Times and Siena College poll, 73% of registered voters think Biden is too elderly to be a good president. Among those who voted for him in 2020, 61% share this opinion.

A small subset of the population is known as cognitive super-agers, and the National Institute on Aging is studying them. These individuals typically have memories on par with those of those 20 to 30 years younger.

Biden is not in that subset.
