Former Vice President Joe Biden has made so many unbelievably embarrassing gaffes since he announced his intentions to run for the presidency that it would be truly difficult to list them all in one article.
It’s sort of scary to think about Biden as president and the number of gaffes and embarrassing senior moments he’ll have when he’s the leader of the free world. Can you imagine someone with his cognitive decline sitting down with the president of China or India and negotiating American trade deals?
Talk about a disaster.
According to the New York Post, another embarrassing moment from the Biden camp happened recently, when the former vice president completely made a fool of himself on Wednesday when he attempted — and failed — to properly introduce Pete Buttigieg’s husband, Chasten, to an audience in Delaware.
“His husband is an educator — always, always the mark of good character, it’s the way I look at it,” Biden said of Buttigieg’s husband.
“And by the way, Jill and I have always enjoyed seeing Pete and Kirsten — Chasten, I should say — together on the trail. Chasten has become a close friend of Jill’s and mine,” Biden added.
So, sure Joe. You and Jill are “close” friends with the gay man that you just introduced as a woman. Wow.
I don’t know about anyone reading this, but I’m very well aware of what my “close friends” are named. And I’m also familiar with what sex they are. But that’s just me.
Not only did Biden forget his soon-to-be Transporation Secretary’s husband’s name, but he also made another massive mistake by introducing Buttigieg as the “first ever openly gay nominee to lead a cabinet department.”
Ric Grenell, who worked for three months as acting director of national intelligence — under President Donald Trump — was the first gay Cabinet member, not Buttigieg.
Buttigieg, of course, was recently named by Biden as his incoming Transportation secretary — a high-level Cabinet position that many believe will give the rising Democratic star the experience needed to mount a presidential run in the future. Buttigieg is only 39-years-old, so it might be a while before he gets his turn.
Unfortunately for America, Biden seems to be picking his Cabinet members — or at least a majority of them — based on their gender, race and sexual preference, obviously leaving qualifications as the last priority. That’s especially true in Buttigieg’s case, as his only experience stems from overseeing South Bend, Indiana’s streets.
But since he’s gay, he apparently qualifies for one of the top-level Cabinet positions?
I fear that for at least the next four years, America will face a setback the likes of which the world has never seen before. It’s time to start praying.
