Joe Biden’s presidential campaign is struggling. He may be the current frontrunner of the Democrat Party, but his statements and the actions of those around him aren’t doing Biden any favors.
Earlier this week, many Americans gave Biden the side-eye after his wife, Jill Biden, claimed that voters should “swallow a little bit” and vote for her husband. Biden’s wife went on to assert that other Democrats have better policy stances, but Biden is the “most electable” candidate to defeat President Trump.
The frontrunner’s 2020 run has also been scorched by a series of increasingly embarrassing gaffes. The gaffes include, but are certainly not limited to, confusing Margaret Thatcher with Theresa May, asserting that poverty and race are one and the same, and mistaking the states in which he delivered a speech. Members of the Biden campaign have attempted to clean things up and run damage control; however, they can only do so much when their candidate continues to put his foot in his mouth.
On Tuesday, Biden embarrassed himself yet again when he cited the incorrect decade in which Robert F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. were assassinated, Fox News reports.
A Closer Look at Biden’s Latest Blunder
On Tuesday, Biden appeared in Iowa to continue campaigning for the presidency. During this speech, the frontrunner attempted to compare his life to the lives of present-day Americans. Presumably, this served as a political tactic to come off as relatable, something which is very transparent to people who are paying attention. However, in Biden’s haste, he incorrectly declared that Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. were assassinated “in the ’70s, the late ’70s.”
Biden wants to be the 46th president of the United States, but he doesn’t even know history. Kennedy and King were assassinated in the 1960s.

President Trump was right when he stated that Biden isn’t playing with a full deck.
The Collapse of Joe Biden
At this point, Biden has made so many blunders that it’s hard not to question whether he’s doing it on purpose. If the Democrat frontrunner can’t even keep his facts straight in front of a podium, how is he going to manage on a debate stage with President Trump?
Democrats keep pushing this narrative that Biden can defeat Trump, but Biden can’t even cite names, historical events, and world leaders correctly. With the third primary debate coming up, it will be interesting to see whether or not the frontrunner slips up yet again. It’s already been said that Biden’s gaffes are most common during the end of the day.
