Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden readily admits to being a “gaffe machine,” but in the last days of campaign appearances before the election, it’s gotten pretty ridiculous.
While talking about Obamacare in Michigan on Saturday, Biden appeared to create a new word: “badakathcare.”
“Donald Trump thinks health care is a privilege, Barack and I think it’s a right to have badakathcare,” he said, or at least that’s the closest onlookers could get to what he said. The same weekend, Biden said another new word in a speech about foreign policy. “I’ll lead an effective strategy to mobilize trunalimunumaprzure,” Biden said. Watch:
There appears to be a robust debate on how to transcribe the final word in this clip. How about: “Truaninonashufodopressure.”pic.twitter.com/KWux7ZiiGk

The Eagles jacket that wasn’t
Biden also said Sunday during a Pennsylvania appearance in Philadelphia that he was wearing an Eagles jacket… actually, he was wearing a jacket from a Delaware college team, the Blue Hens.
“I know Philadelphia well, I married a Philly girl, by the way, and by the way, I got my Eagles jacket on,” Biden said.
The Trump campaign was quick to point out Biden’s poor attempt at pandering to his audience.
This “Eagles” jacket Biden claims he’s wearing to try and show how much he’s in touch with Pennsylvania?

The message: Biden isn’t genuine, and he doesn’t really know Pennsylvania. If you doubt this, just look up his record on opposing fracking.
Will the country elect Biden?
It’s scary that as a country we seem to be so close to voting for an aging candidate that is in such obvious mental decline. When his campaign can’t keep Biden locked away in the basement, it’s obvious that he often can’t string together a coherent sentence or effectively express an idea.
I’m not sure the polls are as close as most of the media thinks they are, based on breakdowns of Trump rally attendance, but much of the media has seriously entertained the option of Biden as president. Despite genuine concerns about Biden’s fitness for office, Democrats have stoked the fires of Trump-hatred to the point that their base would vote for a cardboard cutout over Trump.
Add in some threats to continue violence if Trump wins, and a Biden presidency seems all too possible. It looks like it’s going to come down to some swing states like Florida, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
