Biden isn’t new to making blunder’s in speeches, but his latest drew a lot of reaction.
During Thursday’s campaign speech, the 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful slipped up his words, leading to a noticeable pause and a jump to fix his words, as IJR Red previously reported.
“We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it,” Biden said. “Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids — wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids.”

Biden’s fumble over words didn’t go unnoticed, as Twitter users lit him up over it.
“Yikes…have fun mitigating that one,” Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign Rapid Response Director Andrew Clark tweeted.
The president also weighed in, telling reporters outside of the White House on Friday, “Joe is not playing with a full deck. He made that comment, I said ‘woah.'”
Trump added, “This is not somebody you can have as your president, but if he got the nomination I’d be thrilled.”

Biden and Trump have exchanged barbs, as the former vice president claimed during Wednesday’s speech in Iowa that the president “offers no moral leadership” and is someone who has “a toxic tongue” and “has publicly and unapologetically embraced the political strategy of hate, racism, and division.”
In response, Trump said, “Watching Sleepy Joe Biden making a speech. Sooo Boring!”
