Former Vice President Joe Biden squared-off against Senator Bernie Sanders in the first one-on-one Democrat debate of the 2020 election; arguing over a range of issues including Fidel Castro, the War in Iraq, Coronavirus, and more.
“Fortunately, I don’t have any of the underlying conditions,” said Biden on the Coronavirus just seconds before touching his face.
“China is undoubtedly an authoritarian society, but would anybody deny that extreme poverty in China today is much less than what it was 40 or 50 years ago? That’s a fact!” added Sanders.

BIDEN AT PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE: ‘I Am the Vice President of the United States’
Former Vice President Joe Biden continued his gaffe-filled campaign during Thursday night’s presidential debate; strangely informing the audience he’s the Vice President of the United States.
“The President did the best thing that could be done at the time,” said Biden when asked about President Obama’s immigration policies.”
“How about you?” asked moderator Jorge Ramos.
“I’m the Vice President of the United States,” Biden asserted.
Biden faced tough questions and jabs from his fellow Democratic challengers during Thursday’s debate; including Senator Elizabeth Warren whose poll numbers have risen in recent weeks.
“The 2020 candidate pulled off a rare showing in an Economist/YouGov poll published Wednesday, tying the largely untouchable former Vice President Joe Biden with 26 percent support among registered voters. It marks one of the few polls where Biden is within danger of losing his frontrunner status, and contains a dismal prediction for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.),” reports The Week magazine.
“Biden has only had a few close calls in previous polls, but Warren’s 2020 rise has seemingly been eating away at his support as well as Sanders’. In a late August poll from Monmouth University, Sanders and Warren topped the pool with 20 percent support, and Biden was just behind at 19 percent. In this Economist/YouGov poll, Biden is back up, but so is Warren, both leaving Sanders a full 10 points behind at 16 percent,” adds the website.
BIDEN IN CAROLINA: ‘My Name is Joe Biden, I’m a Democratic Candidate for the United States Senate’
Former Vice President Joe Biden continued his gaffe-ridden campaign in South Carolina this week; bizarrely telling the crowd he’s running for the United States Senate.
“My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden,” he told supporters just days before the South Carolina primary.
Biden made similar comments earlier this month, delivering a speech in Nevada where he called for innovative solutions like they’ve implemented “Here in California.”
“The new technologies are capable of doing so much more. For example, there’s no reason why -at our ports- we don’t have solar capacity to be able to make sure we save a lot of energy, create a lot of new jobs for people out there, just like here in California… I mean… here in Nevada,” said Biden.
