What would've happened in America?'.

A Biden campaign official told CNN on Saturday that Biden has made a similar comment about Obama before, as he tried to stress the significance of Kennedy's and King's assassinations to people who may not have been alive at the time.

Biden, while speaking in Keene, New Hampshire, said: "I've been here a number of times".

The 76-year-old Biden served as Obama's vice chairman for 2 phrases and was a US senator representing DE for 36 years.

Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden speaks on stage during a forum on gun safety at the Iowa Events Center on August 10, 2019 in Des Moines, Iowa. As he talked about academics, he referenced his spouse, Jill Biden, an educator, saying that if he didn't assist academics, "I would be sleeping alone".

The freaky outbursts come as one of many in recent weeks, raising concern among members of his campaign staff who're said to be considering limiting his public appearances in the future to preserve his place atop the polls.

Joe Biden had an odd, and jarring, rhetorical question for voters at a New Hampshire town hall Friday. Earlier this week, Biden incorrectly claimed Sen.

The 2020 favorite has even said he supports "truth over facts" and incorrectly stated that two mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton earlier this month occurred in MI and Houston.

The former vice president said those assassinations sparked his own political awakening in his 20s.

At a second event Friday Biden quickly turned instead to a stepped up attack on the president, accusing him of becoming "more and more unhinged". "Not a joke", Biden said. 'His trade war with China is blowing up in his face.

But it's not just press scrutiny that make Biden's verbal mistakes go viral, Republicans and members of the Trump 2020 election team are naturally quick to seize on each "gaffe" and push it online, as they did with his "Vermont" mistake.
