Joe Biden may have had another senior moment during the debate on Tuesday night.
He was talking about the stock market and made some weird reference to people clipping coupons.
It didn’t even make sense.

WATCH: Joe Biden stumbles over words during debate, references people ‘clipping coupons in the stock market’
Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared to stumble over his words while discussing the economy and taxes on Tuesday night.
“Why should someone who’s clipping coupons in the stock market may, in fact, pay a lower tax rate than someone who in fact is, like I said, a schoolteacher and a fireman? It’s ridiculous,” Biden said.
Biden made those comments while appearing at the fourth Democratic debate. Biden has long been the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination but is facing a potential challenge Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who has been gaining traction in key states.
His answer was the latest apparent gaffe during his campaign. The gaffes appeared to have raised enough concerns that some allies of the former vice president reportedly suggested he scale back the number of events he did on the campaign trail.
David Axelrod, a former adviser to former President Obama, blasted that advice, arguing on Thursday that he shouldn’t be cloistered as a presidential candidate.
Biden has embraced his propensity for gaffes, arguing it was better than being President Trump. “I am a gaffe machine, but my God what a wonderful thing compared to a guy who can’t tell the truth,” he previously said.

@JoeBiden speaks in word salads… listen to any speech he's given in the last year….he makes absolutely no sense at all!

Someone push his life alert button before he’s fallen and he can’t get up.

It’s kinda sad.
