At this point, people expect Joe Biden to trip over his own gaffes, but his performance at the MSNBC debate this week was notably poor.
When Biden spoke about violence against women, he started talking about how we have to keep “punching” at the problem.
The audience laughed nervously and he didn’t seem to get it.
Biden Vows to ‘Keep Punching’ at Problem of Domestic Violence
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s choice of words in discussing the problem of domestic violence couldn’t have been worse if he tried.
When asked how he would support the #MeToo movement as president, he started by discussing that he authored the original Violence Against Women Act, arguing that “no man has a right to raise a hand to a woman in anger other than in self-defense, and that rarely ever occurs.”
He said the culture needs to change and then vowed to “keep punching at it and punching it and punching at it.”
After some laughter in the audience, Biden, seemingly unaware of how awful his word choice was, said, “no, I really mean it.”

While answering another question about how he would manage to work with Republicans in Congress, his answer sounded like he had a mouth full of marbles. Watch:

It’s amazing that he’s still the Democratic front runner. Obama’s former adviser David Axelrod compared him to Mr. Magoo.

It’s almost painful to watch.
Do Democrats think he’s going to improve over time?
