People on both sides are beginning to worry about Joe Biden’s mind and they have good reason to do so.
Every time Joe opens his mouth he gets something wrong.
In the latest example of this, he forgot about his former boss Obama and referred to George W. Bush as the last president.
Joe Biden Forgets Barack Obama Was America’s ‘Last President’ in Latest Lapse
“I’m the only guy that’s beaten the NRA, and my state is a big gun-owning state because of hunting,” Biden told voters in Laconia, New Hampshire, before touting decades-long support for gun control. In particular, Biden highlighted his work authoring the initial assault weapons ban, which was part of his controversial 1994 crime bill.
“I’m the only guy that’s beaten them twice. I got assault weapons banned for ten years, it had to be reauthorized because of hanging chads in Florida,” he said. “The last president said no, I’m not going to reauthorize it.”
The statement struck many as confusing, since the most recent former occupant of the White House, Obama, was an avid supporter of gun control, especially prohibitions on firearms utilizing high-capacity magazines.
Biden was likely referencing President George W. Bush, who in 2004 signaled he would not make renewing the 10-year-old ban a priority in an election year.
