Former Vice President Joe Biden stunned supporters on the campaign trail this week; publicly admitting that “nobody understood Obamacare” and many people across the country “couldn’t keep their doctors.”
“No one did understand Obamacare, including the way it was rolled out,” said Biden in Iowa. “It said you could keep your doctor if you wanted to, and you couldn’t keep your doctor if you wanted to necessarily.”
My god! Biden gives a stunning answer after a man explains that his father lost his insurance under Obamacare and his new plan was twice as expensive.
Biden's response? He wasn't lying because "no one understood Obamacare."

Senator Bernie Sanders ripped former Vice President Joe Biden during an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper this week; saying his record on trade agreements and American manufacturing jobs “won’t play well in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.”
“Joe Biden voted for the disastrous trade agreements like NAFTA, permanent trade relations with China which cost us millions of jobs. You think that’s going to play well in Michigan, or Wisconsin, or Pennsylvania?” asked Sen. Sanders.

“Joe Biden has been on the floor of the Senate talking about the need to cut Social Security, or Medicare, or Medicaid. If we’re going to beat Trump, we need turnout… I just don’t think that kind of record is going to bring forth the energy we need to defeat Trump,” he added.

BIDEN IN IOWA: I’ve Spent a Lot of Time with South Korea’s Kim Jong Un
Former Vice President Joe Biden continued his gaffe-laden campaign tour in Iowa over the weekend; bizarrely stating he’s “spent a lot of time” with “Kim Jong Un in South Korea.”
“You see what’s happening all around the world with his embrace of dictators. Folks like Putin, Kim Jong Un in South Korea and the way he talks about America, the way he talks about our allies,” said Biden.
“I know them. Putin has no illusions about whether I know him or not. Kim Jong Un has no illusions about whether I know him or not… I’ve spent a lot of time with these folks, they know,” he added.

BIDEN IN NEW HAMPSHIRE: ‘I’ve Been to Vermont a Number of Times, I love This Place'
Former Vice President Joe Biden continued his gaffe-riddled campaign over the weekend; telling supporters in New Hampshire he’s been to Vermont a “number of times” dating back to 2014.
“I’ve been here a number of times…I love this place. Look, what’s not to like about Vermont in terms of the beauty of it?” Biden told reporters.

At some point, the media is going to have to stop calling this "gaffes" https://t.co/Dhno1WN2rU

Biden made a similar mistake just days ago, telling a packed audience the assassinations of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr occurred in “the late ‘70s.”
“Just like in my generation, when I got out of school, when Bobby Kennedy and Dr. King had been assassinated in the ’70s, the late ’70s when I got engaged … ,” Biden recalled.
The two leaders were killed two months apart in 1968.

Biden is facing more campaign issues this week; with analysts saying his fundraising efforts have “tumbled” since a series of gaffes on the campaign trail.
“Joe Biden raised $4.6 million online on his first day in the 2020 presidential race, surprising doubters who thought the former vice president couldn’t run a modern campaign. But since then Biden’s online fundraising has tumbled — looking more like flash-in-the-pan opponent Beto O’Rourke than top-tier rivals like Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren,” reports Politico.
“More than 60 percent of the $13.2 million Biden has raised online came in the first week of his campaign, which launched in late April, according to a POLITICO analysis of data from the Democratic fundraising platform ActBlue. While other top candidates spiked early and then gradually raised more money online as the 2020 campaign has carried on, Biden’s pattern is similar to O’Rourke, who roared into the race with millions raised in his first day but has trickled off since then,” adds the website.
