Former Vice President Joe Biden continued his gaffe-filled basement campaign over the weekend; apparently warning the country of the dangers posed by “four more years” of “George.”
“What kind of country are we going to be?” asked Biden alongside his wife Dr. Jill Biden. “Four more years of George, uh, he uh, we’re going to find ourselves in a position where that if Trump is gets elected we’re going to be in a different world!”

BIDEN ON BOTCHED WAR STORY: ‘Details Are Irrelevant’
Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden pushed-back against allegations he misstated multiple facts regarding his visit to Afghanistan this week; saying the details of the trip “are irrelevant.”
“That has nothing to do with judgment of whether or not you send troops to war, the judgment of whether you bring someone home, the judgment of whether you decide on a healthcare policy,” Biden told NPR following a series of speaking gaffes on the campaign trail in recent weeks.
“The details are irrelevant in terms of decision-making,” he added.
“I campaigned like the devil for Hillary, but Hillary had different positions than the president had, and she emphasized different aspects of what would have occurred had I been the nominee,” said Biden. “That doesn’t mean I would’ve won. I don’t mean that.”
The controversy began at a campaign stop in Hanover, New Hampshire, where the democratic presidential hopeful captivated an audience of more than 400 attendees; sharing with them a personal story about his trip to the Kundera province in Afghanistan in 2008. The only problem? The story wasn’t true.
“The Navy captain, Biden recalled Friday night, had rappelled down a 60-foot ravine under fire and retrieved the body of an American comrade, carrying him on his back. Now the general wanted Biden to pin a Silver Star on the American hero who, despite his bravery, felt like a failure,” according to CTPost.
“He said, ‘Sir, I don’t want the damn thing!” Biden said, his jaw clenched and his voice rising to a shout. ‘Do not pin it on me, Sir! Please, Sir. Do not do that! He died. He died,’ adds the report.
Biden continued, “This is the God’s truth. My word as a Biden.”
“Almost every detail in the story appears to be incorrect. Based on interviews with more than a dozen U.S. troops, their commanders and Biden campaign officials, it appears as though the former vice president has jumbled elements of at least three actual events into one story of bravery, compassion and regret that never happened,” reports the CTPost.
On numerous occasions Biden has told this story, and it appears he plays loose and fast with the facts. The time period, the location, the heroic act, the type of medal, the military branch, the rank of the recipient – even his own role in the ceremony – all subject to change.

BIDEN ON TAPE: Wild Audio Emerges From 1973 Speech, Comments on Race and Women, Says Dems ‘Immoral’
Recently unearthed audio from a 1973 speech by Joe Biden went viral on social media Thursday; revealing his wild remarks on issues ranging from race, gender, inner cities, and the two-party system.
“The only analogy that I can really think of, is a football analogy,” he said. “And I apologize to you women in the audience for not being able to think of a more appropriate analogy, but they told me they didn’t want you here anyway.”
“I didn’t expect any women to be here,” Biden added.
“For the record,” Biden said. “Clearly, Democrats are as immoral as Republicans and maybe in big cities a good deal more immoral in the traditional sense.”
“Politics should be the most honorable of professions,” Biden told the crowd. “Those of you who are doctors and lawyers and Indian chiefs in the audience, how can any of you possibly do as much good, if you are very good at what you do, as I can do if I am very good at what I can do.”
“You can’t,” he added. “So the point is, this is where the action is.”
