For months, people have speculated that Biden’s mind is going.
He recently gave people further reason to wonder. While on the campaign trail, the former vice president had trouble remembering whether he was talking about Iran or Iraq.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Joe Biden Confuses Iraq With Iran—Twice
Former vice president and presidential hopeful Joe Biden confused Iraq with Iran twice while on the campaign trail on Tuesday.
“Iran’s parliament voted to eject all Americans and coalition forces from the country,” Biden said at a rally in New York. He made the mistake again when he said Trump threatened to get the United States into war with Iraq.
“I said not long ago that as the walls close in on this president, I worried that he was going to get us in war with Iraq,” Biden said at private fundraiser in New York City.
If Biden was a Republican, the media would absolutely roast him for this.
Also, per pooler @ShaneGoldmacher, Biden twice appeared to misspeak, saying 'Iraq' instead of 'Iran':
"I said not long ago that as the walls close in on this president, I worried that he was going to get us in war with Iraq, as the ultimate wag the dog…'' Biden said.

Here’s a video:
Are Democrats really going to nominate this guy?
Joe Biden just confused Iraq with a different country. Again.
He's not playing with a full deck, folks. https://t.co/H23b1kioOV

Joe Biden clearly isn’t all there cognitively. Sad that people are forcing him to stay in the race.
He said then reiterated that it was Iran’s parliament, not Iraq’s, that voted to expel US troops.
