Joe Biden Reminds Voters He’s Very Old And Could Die In Office (VIDEO)

Joe Biden just brought the art of the political gaffe to a whole new level.

During a campaign stop in Iowa this week, Biden reminded the voters he was speaking to that his choice for a vice president would be very important, given his advanced age.

He was obviously implying that he could die while in office.

Biden acknowledges he might die in office: ‘I’m an old guy’

Joe Biden said that his vice president needs to be capable of being president because he is so old.

“I can think of at least eight women, at least four or five people of color, that I think are totally qualified to be vice president of the United States,” the former vice president, 77, said at a campaign event in Clinton, Iowa on Tuesday.

“But for me, it has to be demonstrated that whoever I pick is two things: One, is capable of [being] president because I’m an old guy,” Biden said as some in the crowd laughed. “No, I’m serious. Look, I thank God I’m in great health. I work out. No, I’m serious. You know, I work out every morning. I’m in good shape — knock on wood, as my mother would say.”

This is not a situation where a candidate gets points for honesty. It’s absolutely stunning that Biden would say such a thing to voters.

Here are some reactions:

It’s amazing to think that this guy may end up being the Democrat nominee.
